Anne Greene here. I love to write about history. I can add suspense and mystery, and I do inject them into each of my historical romances. I can set my stories in any setting. I sprinkle in real historic figures that might have been forgotten, but who performed heroic or evil deeds.
History in romances adds knowledge painlessly to the reader. Also the reader can enter a simpler time with no electronic gadgets to interfere with face to face conversation. I create an entirely different world from our present day one. I use horses and carriages, huge homes or slave quarters, different fashions from todays from the skin up, and a different life style entirely from our present-day one.
I create worlds where people are excited about such modern inventions as gas lights, fabric airplanes, steamships, telegrams, crank-starting automobiles, ice boxes, and Victrola’s. I create a world where women stay at home and raise their family. I show the progression of how women gained independence and self-reliance. I love living in another era and inviting you, the reader, into my worlds.
