Oh, crap. Time to hit the books. I can sit for hour upon hour and search over the internet for every question I have. And when that answer has been found, three more pop up. Onward and upward!
Of course, I don’t write regency romance. To pen those, one has to be historically and culturally correct, and I almost failed history. While I love history and have visited many castles and landmarks, I can’t remember a date to save my life. Don’t tell anyone, but I once put the wrong birthday down for my son on a form.
I’ll sit over here in the corner and await the inevitable beating.
So instead of writing regency, I choose to stick with contemporary times. Beyond that, I rather enjoy the paranormal aspect as well. Currently, I’m working on a piece with a psychiatric ward and a possessed patient. To begin this, I needed to know the daily life of a psych unit nurse.
What a read. I found aspects of both nurse and patient experiences in one paper, and also gained the beginnings of a setting from a different article.
Ah, research. Always giving me stories to haunt my dreams.
Here’s my obligatory promo, since I mentioned contemporary and paranormal. ;)
When a werewolf makes an imprint in her life, Delila feels she may have finally found the soul mate she has been seeking. But everything goes terribly wrong and Delila finds herself burdened with a young half breed child to protect from the evil forces of her world.
