Weekly Geeks: Share your fun literary facts about the town or area where you live. You can talk about famous (or not so famous) authors who live there, novels that have been set in your area, or any other literary facts that you know about where you live. Feel free to embellish with pictures of places and/or authors, maps of the area, and fun facts about the authors.
All of the authors I'm highlighting spent some time in my home town. But they do not currently live here. And they may not have been born here. But spend a few years here, yes.
Author of The True Adventures of Charley Darwin; In Mozart's Shadow: His Sister's Story; Duchessina: A Novel of Catherine de Medici; Loving Will Shakespeare; Marie, Dancing; Patience, Princess Catherine; Kristina, The Girl King; Doomed Queen Anne; Beware, Princess Elizabeth; Anastasia, the Last Grand Duchess; Isabel, Jewel of Castilla; Mary, Bloody Mary; White Lilacs; Jubilee Journey; Gideon's People; Drummers of Jericho; Rio Grande Stories; Where The Broken Heart Still Beats.
A few of these are set in Texas, I know. And White Lilacs specifically is set in my hometown. Though she does change the name slightly. She was inspired during her time here to write on something in the town's past.
She lives now--according to her site at least--in New Mexico.
