Alison Stuart is an award winning Australia writer of ‘cross-genre’ historical romances, so it was only natural that when she came to interview me for my blog tour that the topic turned out to be research. I can’t imagine what a historical novelist goes through to get all those details right. You must basically want to live in that time period, I suspect.
In my case, while I do spend a lot of time researching online, at least half the research I do involves showing up at a milonga ready to dance, interviewing tango masters, and scouting locations in Buenos Aires (sadly I didn’t get to use them because I ended up cutting those scenes from the book). That seems a LOT easier than writing in another century!
I will let you read our interview on her blog, but I’ll just say that there must be something in the water in Australia – her sense of humor shines through!
Don’t forget, enter to win … 😉
