Research is such a necessary component of writing fiction. In both Within the Fog and Hunted, I had to conduct some serious research to use past events as support in both novels. I believe that utilizing true events inside a work of fiction lends an element of reality to a horror or thriller story. One of my favorite compliments from a reader was regarding my use of the History of Roanoke Island as historical support for the Croatoan character. Hunted offers some intriguing historical elements too that I have already had questions on. I’ll keep you in suspense on all that for just a little longer.
