Non-Fiction in My Fiction

IndieBRAG has invited me to write several posts on their blog. Here is the second which relates my experiences researching the Schneebeli family (my ancestors!) and how what I learned evolved into a novel:

“Non-Fiction and the Brothers Path”

My consuming interest as a writer of historical fiction is to get as close as I can to the daily life of my characters who are, usually, just ordinary people. I’m most interested in how these sweeping events that are sketched for us in “history” were in their lives. With The Brothers Path I had some very intriguing facts on which to hang the story.
