For writing the Novel, Lilac Temptress, I did a lot of historical research covering New Orleans in the late 1800’s, and I also researched the Victorian era. A lot of my time was spent in Washington, D.C. at the Library of Congress reading through old books covering the 1800’s. I also did online searches to learn the style of dress during the time, what was popular and not, and what was actually happening in the New Orleans region during the time. I did this in order to make sure that this story was authentic to the century it pertained to. I really enjoyed the research, which took me back to a period where so many accomplishments happened in human history. Check out this link to see what was going on in the 19th century.
I wish you happiness in your life, plenty of romance, and above all else, love.
