Current Project: Untitled but considering the title: Catching Mera
Status: On Chapter 3
I love research so it is not a surprise I typically write historical romance. I have a very hard time with people who don't like to learn. As a teacher of high school students I particularly disliked the question "When will I ever use this?" Many times I replied, this mostly concerning math, "You can use something you haven't learned."
I love to learn new things and delve into the unknown. With my newest work, an erotic fantasy romance, I have injected a shape shifter. He shifts into a jaguar. I learned that even the black cats have what is called are called rosettes. It just harder to see on the black cats. I also placed him in the Sierra Madre Mountains. One parent being an Apache the other white.
My Lakota/Pinkerton series was based on the Lakota Sioux. I learned some basic language and a lot about their history. So now I'm taking on the Apache. It's fun but time consuming yet I'm loving every moment.
Oh, and I learned something very important about the jaguar. This big cat likes water. And most of my books have swimming scenes in them. I was thrilled to discover this.
Where is your research taking you?
