MAY 2012: How did I get started as a novelist? —many people have asked me that question over the years, and it’s basically the story of TRACTRIX. So I decided this morning to start an
in-depth blog on » squidoo about the science behind the fiction. Before I knew it I had written two sections: one about the beginnings of my first novel-writing experience—“My personal journey”—and another about the research that goes into my novels—the how and why of the locations I chose for TRACTRIX.
I hope you'll stop by, share my posts, and enjoy the reads.
