Jennifer Moore to Speak on Research for Fiction Writers

Imagine a Civil War tale where the women of the house greeted all male visitors with a warm hug at the door? Or a story about a modern day girl who makes a friend in North Korea through Facebook? Some writers might try to claim creative license, but how long would you keep reading either of these stories with their cringe-worthy mistakes? The devil is in the details, so don’t let a lack of research ruin your story.

But what’s the best way to do research? What kind of details do you need to look for? And when is enough, enough? Jennifer Moore has got your bases covered and will be presenting to the UVW to expand on research of all types including language, setting, culture, and time period.

Jennifer Moore is a passionate reader and writer of all things romance due to the need to balance the rest of her world that includes a perpetually traveling husband and four active sons, who create heaps of laundry that are anything but romantic. She suffers from an acute addiction to 18th and 19th century military history and literature. Jennifer has a B.A. in Linguistics from the University of Utah and is a Guitar Hero champion. She lives in northern Utah with her family, but most of the time wishes she was on board a frigate during the Age of Sail. Check out her website here!
