Today I am going to post a line from
The Outlaw's Secret
by Stacy Henrie
This week I am doing another historical fiction book. You may notice a trend in that a lot of the books I read and talk about are historical fiction (it is my favorite genre after all). Have you read any of Stacy Henrie's books? If not, you should give them a try!!!
Near Medicine Bow, Wyoming 1892
The squeal of the train wheels jerked Essie Vanderfair's attention from the doodles and half-formed thoughts scribbled inside her notebook to the window beside her.

Why historical fiction?
I write what I love to read. I was introduced to historical fiction as a senior in high school when my teacher challenged his students to read an historical novel. I chose James A. Michener’s The Source. I never looked back. With historical Christian fiction, I began with Lori Wick with knights and castles. I am a student by heart and love the research. I love to learn and study. I do venture out of historical fiction when I read, occasionally, but I always have a good historical ready.
