1. What is the most unusual thing you’ve ever done in the name of research for a book?
I learned how to amputate a hand for my novel “Harriet”. Not something I do on a regular basis.
2. Name a nonfiction book you’ve read for research that you wouldn’t have read otherwise. Not including writing craft books.
“Ships Through the Ages”. My historical, “Captain’s Captive”, opens with a voyage to the colonies aboard a cargo vessel. I wanted to get the details right.
3. If you could travel anywhere to do research for a book, including back in time, where would you go?
Hands down…England during the reign of Elizabeth I.
