For those of you who love historical fiction, And the Rest is History is the show you won’t want to miss.
Historical author Brita Addams hosts an hour-long show on the last Tuesday of each month, starting at 3pm Eastern, 2pm Central. She’ll pick the brain of an author of historical fiction, and try to get them to divulge all the secrets they use to bring us the wonderful stories they write. Join us for an in depth discussion that can range from crafting historicals in a particular time period to what it takes to create something that authentically represents the time period. Authors spend a great deal of their time in the past and we are the lucky recipients of the fiction they write. This show will give readers the opportunity to ask questions and to get to know their favorite authors.
Featured today, author Kirsten Blacketer. Stick her in the middle of a chaotic home with two children, a hyperactive dog, and a camouflage wearing husband, and she can cook and clean with the best of them. Her characters creep forth from the dark recesses of her mind taking their places in the castles and forests built from her words. No simpering heroines linger there with forlorn gazes turned to the horizon, waiting for their Prince Charming. They straighten their spine, arming themselves with blade and bow, prepared to do their part in defense of their honor and destiny. She breathes life into the women she believes our ancestors to be, showing how they lived and loved with passion and grace.
Never bored by the tales still left to tell, she battles the ever sarcastic muse in her quest for romance.
