One interview last year I neglected to post was the one put to me by Angie Azur. Angie is a wonderful lady from California in the USA who, at the time, was an intern for the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. She posed some excellent questions.

What is the most interesting fact you’ve learned while researching Dracula?

I’ve had to do vast amounts of historical research as my first two books run from the 15th to the 17th centuries and I’m a stickler for fine detail and getting things right. It’s hard to put my finger on any one fact from my research. I find some of the legends and folklore I’ve incorporated into my story, i.e facts that haven’t had proper historical clarification, the most interesting. I just love being able to play with so many important figures from history and manipulating what we know of their lives to suit my premise. As for Dracula himself, his whole life is of interest to me. What a fascinating man he was.
