I have the advantage of the writer of historical fiction, for she is subject to the strictures of fact, no matter how creative she may be. And thus it is that she must immerse herself in research, lest she be caught in the commission of an anachronism. I, on the other hand, write freely from a realm wholly created in my imagination, a realm in which an anachronism may not exist, for that world is timeless!
Disclaimer: Though there may be names and settings that seem to be recognizable, be assured that these are works of fiction, and any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely intentional, for if you have not known anyone resembling any of these characters, you have lived neither long nor fully. Geographical discrepancies from physical reality is the sole responsibility of the writer. If you dislike the world in which these characters live, you may feel free to create your own.
