I said my method for selecting a setting in Something Strange and Deadly was unscientific, remember? Well, just look at how I wound up choosing Victorian times. I thought it was cool. I thought it would add conflict, what with the claustrophobic etiquette and patriarchy. Yeah. Very inspired, huh?
Thanks to that gals at YA Highway for this blog prompt. If you could travel back to any historical era for research purposes, which would you choose? Definitely late 19th century United States — specifically, 1876 Philadelphia. Boy oh boy do I wanna see the International Centennial Exhibition that’s the back drop for Eleanor’s story.
