Your Research to Write Historical Fiction.

I love writing Historical Fiction.  Here’s a question for you.  If you’re writing Historical Fiction, how much research should be done for your book?

I call this History Made Fun and Reading History Like a Novel.  When I write Historical Fiction, I can’t resist sarcasm and humor.  If you want a textbook, take a History class.  I have fun giving you history with some things made up, the truth stretched a little, and if you learn some history, but accident or otherwise, FANtastic! 🙂

Let’s see, I’ve picked on Bonnie Price Charlie.  What else can I come up with?  My warped mind is spinning.  I am also welcome to ideas from my readers.



About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
