Today's podcast features guest writer Michelle Cox!
If you're thinking of writing historical fiction, this is the perfect episode for you! Even if you aren't, this is a good way to understand getting the "when" of your story right.

Michelle and I talk about the importance of nailing the accuracy when writing a historical story. And we also dig into how she handles fears, even after writing over a half-dozen books!
Sit back and be ready to take some notes!

A little info on Michelle Cox:
Michelle Cox is the author of the Henrietta and Inspector Howard series as well as “Novel Notes of Local Lore,” a weekly blog dedicated to Chicago’s forgotten residents. Her books have won over 50 international awards and have been praised by Kirkus, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Elle, Redbook, Brit&Co., Popsuger, Buzzfeed, and many others.

Unbeknownst to most, Michelle hoards board games she doesn’t have time to play and is, not surprisingly, addicted to period dramas and big band music. Also marmalade. She lives in Chicago with her husband, three children, naughty Goldendoodle and is hard at work on her latest novel.
