Finding the Stories . . .

Hi Friends,

I’m often asked, “Where do you find the ideas for your stories?” That’s a great question! I usually discover my plot and characters while I’m doing research. Reading books about the time period and location, watching movies, and reading newspapers, diaries, and biographies are some of the ways I find new ideas for stories. Traveling to the location is another great way to learn what’s needed to make my stories come alive.

I just created a new page at my website that gives readers a look at my research process and my trips to England, with lots of photos and fun memories. I’d love to share it with you!

I hope you’ll click on over and pay a visit to England with me!

Happy Reading!

Carrie

  1. Loved this post and thoroughly loved taking a peek at your page detailing your research process. Good stuff! The pictures are tugging at my travel heartstrings … I’m dying to go back to England to do more research. Hopefully in 2016. Thanks for all your wonderful advice!

  2. Hi Diane, I’d love to go back too! 2016 sounds great. Where would you like to go? I’d love to return to the Lake District and I’d also like to visit Northumberlund.
