Today, Ashlyn Macnamara interviews me on the historical romance blog The Dashing Duchesses about my research, the writing process, and The Cross and the Dragon. Pardon me, I should say Duchess Ashlyn.
The duchesses are a group of historical romance authors who share the history behind their novels and interview fellow authors. I especially enjoyed the post on the history of women’s swimsuits.
Duchess Ashlyn write Regency England and Colonial North America. Her Regency manuscript, retitled A Most Scandalous Proposal, was a finalist in the 2011 Golden Heart contest and will be published by Bantam Books in early 2013.
Among other things, Ashlyn asks about the time period, where I dig up my details, if there are any first-person accounts I particularly enjoyed, and what I found particulary challenging about crafting the story.
