Growing up in Houston, Texas in the 1970’s, historical romance author Annette O'Hare loved the stories about ghosts haunting the old Spaghetti Warehouse and the mysterious “blue light” cemetery. But it was "Devil's Island," the magical woods across from her childhood home where her imagination blossomed. She created fantastic scenarios to act out with her brother and the neighborhood kids where worlds were conquered and dragons were slain. Annette is still making up stories. She is the author of Northern Light and her new release, Redeeming Light. Her love for the history and heritage of her home state of Texas shines through in her writing and she's made it the backdrop for her book series. Annette is a longtime member of American Christian Fiction Writers and a beloved member of our chapter. Today we'll be talking about her writing journey and navigating down the rabbit hole of research for writing historical novels.
