I love talking about writing about as much as I love writing (so, a lot). And I had a great time talking about historical fiction and the writing life with one of my “Write Nite” pals (and directly-across-the-street neighbor) Gabriela Pereira. We get into:
- How to weave a famous historical figure into fiction
- Crafting rich supporting characters in a road trip story (when they only get a scene or two)
- Why it’s important to represent real people accurately in your novel
- Using setting to develop characters and share history
