where the writers are
The story behind the research
In the waning days of the Ottoman Empire rule of the Holy Land, a young woman struggles between her passion and her faith.
David Citadel--Jerusalem, 1900

With the release of my new novel, JERUSALEM MAIDEN, Red Room is featuring my original article, "Tunneling Under Jerusalem," the extensive research I had conducted for this novel, a project that took me from New York to Jerusalem, and then surprisingly, to Paris.

 I purposely chose to write about the research aspect of creating a novel, as my fellow authors and writers here can appreciate how much settings, details, and intimacy with the characters count.

and Part 2


And one day, I may even continue to part 3, my research in Paris....
