Happy Friday everyone and welcome to the Fall into Romance Blog Hop. I’m giving away a free copy of either Hearts in Barbed Wire or Entanglements to two folks who leave a comment, so be sure to enter.
A hundred years ago, The Great War, or World War 1 started. Since I am a history buff, I wanted to know more about the time period. Since I’m an author, learning more about the time period gave me story ideas;-)
I’m currently working on a novella in the series set during Halloween. Perfect for a Fall into Romance Blog Hop, don’t you think? While the first two books in the series take place not long after the Central Powers (Germany and her allies) invade Belgium, this story takes place on the fictional island of Hope’s Pointe, Michigan, USA.
Why Michigan when the US didn’t enter the war on the side of the allies until 1917? You see my grandmother and great-grandmother are of German stock and I wanted to tell something of their experiences during this time as well as learn why both rarely mentioned their German heritage.
As fate, God, and the story-fairy would have it, my aunt came to visit and told an interesting story about my grandparents. It seems they had broken up because of family plans for my grandfather but had met again at a dance and decided to marry despite objections. They were married over sixty years before my grandfather died.
Now that’s an inspiration for romance.
