Romance Weekly's Authors answer questions about serious and non-so-serious aspects of writing. Enjoy! This week's questions come from my friend Dani Jace! Thanks for the thought provoking questions, Dani!
1. What is the most unusual thing you’ve ever done in the name of research for a book?
I don't think I've done anything really unusual. I'm fascinated with other people's cultures and beliefs so I don't feel respectfully observing or participating in others' ceremonies or services that strange.
2. Name a nonfiction book you’ve read for research that you wouldn’t have read otherwise. Not including writing craft books.
Celtic Magic by D.J. Conway. It's an awesome resource book for Celtic rituals and legends recommended by a solitary wiccan practitioner. I love the legends behind the customs and place names in Ireland, Wales and Scotland. This provides a better understanding for the history and culture of a wonderful ancient society where women and men shared equal respect.
3. If you could travel anywhere to do research for a book, including back in time, where would you go?
Well, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. I've always felt an affinity for the lore and mystical beauty of the ruins of the British Isles. I'd love to visit the lesser known stone dances and fairy mounds, the castle ruins and small villages, experience the spirit of the thin places of the Celts for myself.
Hop over to visit Dani Jace, author of hard, hot, and handsome heroes. Many of her stories take place in one of my favorite places, the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
