Thank God It’s Monday! Getting us off on the right foot, here’s a quote from Maureen Jennings, author of the Murdoch Mystery Series, on writing historical fiction:

“I absolutely love history, love knowing how people lived and thought. I get to do a lot of research reading when preparing for a new book and that is most rewarding. I find contemporary society scary. I think it’s vital to know and understand what previous generations have had to deal with and how they’ve done it. Sometimes it’s depressing to see what hasn’t changed, but can be encouraging to realize that we have made progress.” (From the spring edition of Pomp and Circumstantial Evidence, the official newsletter of Magna Cum Murder mystery writers conference. Jennings is this year’s Guest of Honor.)
