One of the best parts of being an avid reader is getting to visit tons of different worlds and eras without ever leaving your seat. London in the 1970s? Groovy, baby! Colonial America? Why yes, good sir! Modern-day Italy? Buongiorno! When you read as much as us, you can definitely tell when an author has done his or her research --- the details are crisper and clearer and every description jumps off the page. So how do they do it? In this post, author Diana Rodriguez Wallach
shares how she went abroad to beautiful Italy to do some on-site research for PROOF OF LIES
, an action-packed thriller with twists, turns and international intrigue. Read on to find out how she (and her travel companion husband) scoured Italy from the ground up to find all of the necessary details for her book.
