Worse than Dead: the Next Best Thing

Posted by Georgia Ann Mullen on April 2, 2013 | Leave a comment (2)
Author Nancy Gadzuk enrolled me in The Next Big Thing meme. First, I had to look up the word “meme.” The short definition: it has something to do with repetition. And that’s what we’re doing. Answering questions sent by our writer friends about our works in progress and posting answers on...

Book research comes alive in Louisville

Posted by Georgia Ann Mullen on April 8, 2012 | Leave a comment (0)
Last summer I took a combined research/pleasure trip to Maysville and Louisville, KY. I learned so much and had to get right down to fixing parts of my story that didn’t jibe with history. I may be writing fiction, but I want the historical parts to be as accurate as possible. I was...

If you support women’s rights and haven’t made a trip to Seneca Falls, NY—go! I’ve visited several times and never fail to be moved by the names of the 68 courageous women engraved on the wall in the Women’s Rights National Historical Park who signed the Declaration of Sentiments more...

Ideas for my historical novels grew out of my employment as a journalist–or, more exactly, from the places my job as magazine writer and editor took me. One of those places was Seneca Falls, NY, where I traveled to write a town profile for a regional magazine. I toured Elizabeth Cady...

I thought Wixumlee Is My Salvation was a great read. The author created an interesting plot and believable characters. The story line continues from the 1st book, “A Shocking and Unnatural Incident”. I can’t wait for the next book. This book makes you think what it must have been...
