In writing narrative adventure history, one of elements of research that is important to me is what I call "immersion research" (for lack of a formal nomenclature to describe it). Certainly, the hard academic book and library and archive and primary research is crucial, but if a writer...

If you are just joining us, this story begins here...   Drive on the Left! (Part 2) Monday Strangely, the idea of driving on the wrong side of the road didn’t seem that odd. As I dressed and packed up a few things for the day, I thought, “I can do this. I am capable. I can do this.” I...

I leave at the crack of dawn for the annual national conference of Romance Writers of America in San Francisco. I'm looking forward to being surrounded by hundreds of people who also hear voices but aren't forced to live in padded rooms. I'm looking forward to cooler weather. I'm looking forward to...

The thing about travelling is that you're always missing something. It's a fair exchange: you take amazing experiences away with you, but you fall in love with things you have to leave behind. Maybe it's the way a cone of cypress looks so solid against slow Italian skies; a parrotfish, nibbling...
