Interview With Michelle Moran Day 1 - Women in History

Michelle is giving away a copy of her newest novel, Rebel Queen. To be entered in the drawing, click the Raffle below for more information.

 

Welcome to PASTimes. Tell us a little about what you write.

I’m an author of historical fiction focusing on women in history whose stories haven’t been widely told.
Are you a full-time writer or do you hold a day job? What is the biggest challenge/obstacle you face in protecting your writing time?
I’m a full-time writer, but with two children under two it’s challenging. I’m lucky to have a lot of good help though, including my mother, who is a gem!
What historical time periods interest you the most and how have you immersed yourself in a particular time period?
I don’t have a favorite period in history, but when I choose one to write about, I immerse myself in that culture first by visiting the country, then by reading as many books as I can about that place and time.
Introduce us briefly to the main characters in your most recent book.
The narrator is Sita, an old woman looking back on her extraordinary life as a member of Queen Lakshmi’s Durga Dal, an all-female group of royal guards who really existed in order to protect the queen.
 
What are you working on now?
A novel about Mata Hari, WWI’s most famous courtesan and spy.

 
Join us tomorrow for day 2 of the interview with Michelle Moran. For a chance to win a copy of Rebel Queen, click on the link.

For some reason, I have been fascinated in Anne Boleyn. Always wondered how much would've been different around the world if she received a fair trial.

Esther! Very brave woman...

I've always been interested in the life of Lady Jane Grey, despite the fact that I can't seem to find a whole lot of books about her.

I lived in Earhart Hall as a freshman at Purdue, but have never seen a book written about her (although they did bring her to life in Night at the Museum)!

Corrie ten Boom was very courageous during a Holocaust prisoner because of her faith in GOD.
