Hi Romance at Random! Thanks for having me. As a historical romance author, I run across several interesting facts about the era I’m writing in. A historian by profession, I love researching into the topics and find the true depth of that era or person or war or whatever I’m on a mission to discover. It is that drive to find the truth, to portray and interpret the past correctly, to be able to take the reader back there, which makes my stories rich in the past. In my research for my stories, let me give you a hint of what I’ve come across that is fascinating.
Lucky readers at the It’s All Fun and Games until Someone Falls in Love panel got the chance to play a love trivia game side by side with Loveswept, Ballantine and Bantam authors. And who could possibly be better at love trivia than writers and readers who live, breathe, and eat romance–it was the ultimate battle of romance knowledge. If you didn’t get a chance to stop by the panel, we can still bring the game to you, so play along with these sample questions! Make your guesses and then highlight the brackets to see the answer. No cheating!
