Last Friday, March 24, I was a guest on Wayne Turmel’s blog. He introduced his interview of me with the following comment:
“The opening of the American West is great fodder for writers of historical fiction. Huge vistas, dramatic action, and characters who lived just long enough ago that they don’t feel foreign to us.”
How true that is!
Wayne asked me some very interesting questions in the post, including one I hadn’t been asked before—what my favorite scenes were in Lead Me Home and Now I’m Found. Go read the post to find out my answer.
Wayne writes historical fiction centered on the Middle East. He has written two novels, The Count of the Sahara and the recently released Acre’s Bastard, as well as a number of nonfiction books. Like me, Wayne is a member of the Hometown Reads community, though he is based in Chicago and I am in Kansas City.
I hope you’ll take a look at my post on Wayne’s blog. And while you’re there, check out Wayne’s books also.
