Extreme (but funny) Research for a Novel

October 16, 2012

This humorous PW article describes the extraordinary       lengths Jeri Westerson will go to understand her material. When your book is part of a medieval mystery series starring Crispin Guest, ex-knight turned 14th century detective, that research can become dangerous and hilarious at the same time. Jeri’s writing inspired her to make mead in the backyard (with thousands of uninvited, but very interested bees) and also figure out how to stab someone by attacking a slab of beef.

I hope for her safety she sticks to the Middle Ages!
