Posted by on Feb 4, 2018 in Anna's Posts, Behind the Book |

Every story is different, and every book requires a different kind of research. This is especially true if, like me, you write about everything from magical parallel worlds to modern-day Scotsmen — oh, and of course, the occasional hot firefighter! The research involved varies from one book to the next, even within a series. Take my upcoming release, currently on preorder, Scandalous in a Kilt.

My, how time flies when you’re writing about hot guys in kilts. I can hardly believe it’s been a year since the release of Dangerous in a Kilt, the first Hot Scots book, but sometimes it also feels like much longer than that. Why?

I love research. Yes, I admit it. I am a research geek and proud of it. The librarian in me craves information, and the writer in me needs that information to flesh out my stories. But there are some things you just can’t learn from doing research. You need practical life experience. This is, to me, the true meaning of the adage “write what you know.” Here’s my list of my five favorite facts I could learn only by living them. (The first one happened just this morning!)

Halloween has arrived once again, heralded by costumes and candy and carved pumpkins. I love decorating for Halloween, and pumpkin-carving is my favorite task. Over the years, I’ve taken photos of the jack-o-lanterns I created and other homemade decorations, as a sort of documentary history of my Halloween spirit.
