|Only God |
can bring a soul to rest
I have always enjoyed history and discovered writing fiction around it is even more enjoyable. They All Fall Down, my first novel, is also historical fiction but demanded history be followed closely since it takes place in the early years of WWII when diplomacy failed and war erupted across the globe.
Keeping in mind that history is a window to the future allows characters to participate in the current events striving to bring about the outcomes of current time. Natural disasters, wars, life changes and death can bring out the best or the worst in people. Using these events help to build the characters' personalities when the stories unfold and their lives take on meaning as they thread their way through the pages of a novel.
