It’s Your Turn! Guest Blogs from Readers and Writers

This is the part of the web site where you get to express your ideas, questions, hopes, values, and thoughts in general about the challenges and excitements of writing, creating, and promoting your work – or to share the fun and thrill of what you’re reading.

I’m asking both readers and writers whom I know – and I’ll eventually go out on a limb and put out a call to some people I don’t know, but who I think will have something interesting to say.  The focus will be mainly on mystery/suspense, romance, fantasy, horror, SciFi, or YA, in keeping with the interests of most of my readers – but that doesn’t mean that I won’t have writers bring in topics or authors that you might not quite expect to fit these areas.  So, do respond here on this site or by sending me an email at syang@worcester.edu.  But keep it clean – Natasha will be watching!

 

If you have ideas for a blog appropriate to this site (250-500 words), contact me at thesyang@worcester.edu and I can see if your proposal would work.  All final decisions for editing rest with me (and my co-editor), since I’m the one everyone will blame if something looks hinky, content- or grammar-wise!

This month’s feature:

Post #4, September 15, 2018  “Everyone Knows about Chaucer, Or Do They?”

Tim Shaw’s blog gives us an enlightening look at why he loves writing a historical mystery; how he has discovered in Geoffrey Chaucer’s real life a fertile ground for writing  an intriguing tale that startlingly differs from the stereotyped vision many have of the Canterbury Tale’s author.  Tim is the author of A Death on Catte Street, a Geoffrey Chaucer Mystery  as well as the creator of a blog on the Middle Ages, www.dailymedieval.com., where he presents “bite-sized pieces of medieval people and places, events and customs that are usually ignored in favor of Arthur and jousts in the Hollywood view of the time.”  His degrees in medieval studies and continued personal research make his site a valuable source for information on the medieval world.
