One of the great challenges of writing historical fiction is blending the characters and plot with the historical record. Here are some links to sites that help illuminate life during the American Revolution.

One of the great joys of writing historical fiction is meeting some fascinating people who share your passion for history! In trying to research travel on the Hudson River in the Eighteenth Century I stumbled upon “The Big Row,” an annual bateau journey/reenactment. The website owner/creator (and bateau skipper), David Manthey, has been incredibly helpful in sharing his research and experience with me. When Gideon Hawke steps safely off a bateau in August 1777, it will be largely thanks to David’s guidance!

I hope you enjoy!
