TODAY I HONOR ALL AUTHORS WHO GIVE US THE WORLDS THEY BUILD AND CHARACTERS TO LOVE OR LOVE TO HATE, WITH PLOTS WE CAN LOSE OURSELVES IN FOR A WHILE.

Today, I honor the work of all authors who have given us the beauty of their imaginations and the worlds they build.

I’d like to give a big shout-out to all the authors who write to all the authors who put in so much research into their writing. Although I did a lot of research when writing my other books and stories, it was nothing compared to the amount of research I had to do when writing Whispers on the Wind.

I learned what the Pacific Ocean was once called in ancient times, how one would have to sail to avoid the least contact with the Atlantic Ocean, and what it was once called. I had to learn what they once named what the Atlantic Ocean. The names of food and spices used in ancient times in particular locations. What types of stones and gems used in mosaic floors, what the tops of columns were called. The names of flowers and trees in and around the area. When a baby rolled over. Chants and songs that were sung at a particular time in history, names that were used, and so much more. Will I ever write another time travel novel? I can’t answer that. Writing historical or thriller pieces requires lots of research and effort. And then to add it all into a story that is believable with characters you either love or love to hate deserves to be read. Their efforts are to be admired, and I will read them all. A special shout out to Casi McLean, Linnea Tanner, Sarah Mallery, Uvi Poznansky, Robert W Walker, and Robert Whitehill.

All authors work hard at their craft, but to write these genres takes a person who is willing to spend days and months just for the research. To be able to take someone on a trip into history, or a story to thrill, and delight takes a special talent, and one that I am in awe of, having spent the last six plus months writing Whispers.
