Blog Tour Day 3: HFAA (Historical Fiction Addicts, Anonymous)

Day 3 of my blog tour - it's been great to talk to so many readers online. Today I'm over at "Tanzanite's Castle," with a guest post on the books and movies that first got me hooked on that drug known as historical fiction. Number 4 - the movie "Last of the Mohicans."

"Something about the combination of sweeping scenery, haunting music, violent battles between European soldiers and Indian tribes, and passionate love story between an Indian warrior and a courageous English miss just stabbed me through the gut. Still does."

Fellow HF addicts, come on over to Daphne's castle (thanks for having me, Daphne!) to read the rest and share your gateway drug - you might win a free copy of "Empress of the Seven Hills" in the giveaway!
