Mystery and History

On Monday, August 9, I will guest post on Nicole Miller’s blog, To the Heart of History. She’s running a fun series on “The Story Behind the Story,” how certain novels have come to be. I’ll talk about timing and give you an idea of how long my novel, Waiting for Yesterday, has been in the works.

In the meantime, do you…
