Using Travel to Enhance Research for Your Writing

Linda C. McCabe

Reading a well-crafted novel can transport you to another time and place. Getting those details correct takes effort and research. Sometimes the only way to get a true sense of place is to travel there and experience it firsthand. Linda C. McCabe, author of the epic historic fantasy Quest of the Warrior Maiden will discuss how she went about researching her novel set in the time of Charlemagne and her trips to France. She will show slides from her trips that helped imbue her narrative with rich historical detail.

Linda C. McCabe is the author of the award-winning novel Quest of the Warrior Maiden, and Fate of the Saracen Knight, based on the legends of Charlemagne. She received a master’s degree as an historian of science from Sonoma State University, and loves to travel. To aid in her research, she traveled to France scouring museums in Paris and trekking through medieval hilltop villages in the Midi-Pyrenees. Her first novel, Quest of the Warrior Maiden, was honored by the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association’s (BAIPA) as Best Historical Fantasy and received an Honorable Mention by the Hollywood Book Festival. Her second novel, Fate of the Saracen Knight, was published in December 2018. She is currently writing the third volume of this trilogy.
