HISTORY BUFF is back!!!!!!

For those of you who didn't see the details on my Facebook page, my LOOOONG hiatus from History Buff was due to a 2-month trip abroad. As some of you know, my sixth book is set in India, where I recently spent several months traveling to Gwalior, Jhansi, and the many places Queen Lakshmi both lived and fought. 

While in India, I wasn't just busy with research. I was also getting married! If you are unfamiliar with traditional Indian weddings, they're unbelievably elaborate affairs, with music, food, dancing, and colors - lots of bright colors! It was an amazing time, and I couldn't be more excited about setting this next book in India, where Queen Lakshmi would have experienced many of the same things that I did during her own wedding.
