  1. Have you done any research on the anti colonial revolution of Haiti? A lot of women of color hero’s/characters. The backlash and current impoverished state of the country since the revolution and the reasons behind that. Let me know if you decide to write or simply research in this. I’m in Boston by the way.

    1. I have, actually. It inspired a lot of my current novel and ideas for some new/later ones. I really liked a podcast series on it. The podcast is called Revolutions; it’s really cool. I’ve also done a lot of research on the island before full-on colonization for a pirate story, about the maybe-real Haitian-French pirate captain Jacquotte Delahaye. The Black Count, about Alexandre Dumas’s father, hits on the island’s history, too. Whenever I do end up publishing anything on it, it’ll go on the site, for sure.

      Thanks for stopping by!
