Summary
Emerson, who writes mysteries set in Elizabethan England and nineteenth-century Maine, gives the aspiring writer excellent pointers for producing an accurate, interesting historical mystery, using her own experience as well as interviews with other authors to demonstrate the joys and pitfalls of research and writing. Some sections cover topics essential to all writers: characters, plot development, how to create suspense. Others are important to historical research. Don't rely on movies for accurate information. Use primary documents when you can. Don't be afraid to ask experts. A list of authors and their works is useful for the reader who will enjoy this glimpse into the creative process.
