I've started a public Facebook page here called The Monster's Daughter and Company where I share the secrets of my writing process and reveal some of the research gems I've discovered along the way. Characters come to me and tell me their stories, and I write down what they say. But I often need to research a time or place to fill in the blanks and give the stories verisimilitude. My job as a storyteller is to make my novels feel real to the reader, not to put in every detail I know! But I’ve learned some pretty interesting things along the way, and I’ll share those goodies with you here, along with my writing process. Come join us there! You don't have to be on Facebook to view this page, however. I will try to gather up the posts from there and post them here, too.
