Sharon Penman is stopping by!

Post by boswellbaxter » Tue October 14th, 2008, 11:48 pm

We're delighted to announce that Sharon Penman has graciously agreed to drop by the site and answer questions for us. She'll be stopping by on Sunday, October 19, at noon (US Eastern Standard Time). If for some reason you won't be able to be here at that time, you can PM questions to me and I'll post them for you.

So be here on Sunday, and let's all give Ms. Penman a warm welcome!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Oh, I would love to ask her about re-writing Sunne in Splendour after the first manuscript was stolen, and if she felt she did a better job the second time around, or if there were some parts that she just couldn't get back. Except I will be at a conference from October 19-24 and probably will be too busy to do more than check in -- if even that. Rats!

Spiffy. Thats nice of her. :)

Frankly I dont know why more historical fiction authors don't stop by. We're pretty cool. And why not go to your base, ya know. Drum up some business for your novels.

Great Stuff. I'll look forward to it... :D

Yeah! I asked in another thread if someone could invite her - I didn't imagine it would actually happen! Thanks to whoever pulled it off. I will so be there!
