Napa: Balancing Historical Fiction with Drama & Fantasy

August 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Writing historical fiction requires extensive research on historical figures, settings, customs, etc., and decisions regarding dramatic license vs. adhering strictly to the historical record, while fantasy has its own rules regarding logic and consistency. Award winning author Linda C. McCabe will discuss the craft of balancing the needs of historical fiction with drama and fantasy.

Linda is the author of the novel Quest of the Warrior Maiden, based on the legends of Charlemagne. She received a master’s degree as an historian of science from Sonoma State University, and loves to travel. To aid in her novel’s research, she traveled to France scouring museums in Paris and trekking through medieval hilltop villages in the Midi-Pyrenees. Her novel was honored by the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association’s (BAIPA) as Best Historical Fantasy and received an Honorable Mention by the Hollywood Book Festival. McCabe is finishing the first of two sequels.

Her website is www.LindaCMcCabe.com
