THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY:
About the inspiration for my novel
THE INSPIRATION FOR A NOVEL—I wrote a post for Gulara Vincent’s blog about the inspiration for my novel. (My book was under its working title, ‘Ida’s Children’, at that stage.)
MY GRANDFATHER—How my paternal grandfather inspired one of the characters in my novel.
MY GREAT-GRANDMOTHER—My great-grandmother inspired one of the characters of my novel, too.
MUSIC, ALWAYS—About the importance of music in my life and how it inspired my book.
2, 2 AND 2—I wrote about two inspirations, two places and two interesting parallels for Amanda Curtin’s blog, ‘Looking Up, Looking Down’.
