Do you use real people in your books? Real events? How do you research a historical novel? How do you write a mystery? And finally, since many of my books feature a ghost or a paranormal experience: Do you really believe in ghosts and the supernatural?
A lively, humorous lecture, with plenty of time allotted for questions and audience participation.
