Researching History for Fiction Authors


If you haven’t had a chance to pick up the latest Concordia Wells mystery, it’s available now at all the major online booksellers. Here’s a bit more about book #5 and what the lady professor is up to:


A stolen blueprint, a dead body, and wedding bells….
Change is in the air at Hartford Women’s College in the fall of 1898. Renowned inventor Peter Sanbourne—working on Project Blue Arrow for the Navy—heads the school’s new engineering program, and literature professor Concordia Wells prepares to leave to marry David Bradley.

The new routine soon goes awry when a bludgeoned body—clutching a torn scrap of the only blueprint for Blue Arrow—is discovered on the property Concordia and David were planning to call home.

To unravel the mystery that stands between them and their new life together, Concordia must navigate deadly pranks, dark secrets, and long-simmering grudges that threaten to tear apart her beloved school and leave behind an unseemly trail of bodies.

Wise Word Wednesday: Milestone Mashups

Today’s Wise Word Wednesday arrives just before that all-important summer holiday weekend, a time of red-white-and-blue kid bicycle parades, incendiary devices, and drunken men, some of whom are now referred to as “Lefty.”  Of course, I’m talking about:


The Fourth of July



So in the spirit of celebrating “ennials,” I’ve culled through the blogosphere to find all sorts of milestones, and ways to celebrate them.  It’s a true “mashup” because they are put together in one place, without rhyme or reason, the weird and the wonderful!  Enjoy.
