The Spinning Room: What Makes You Read Colonial Fiction?

Here’s part of my answer:

I grew up on the east coast, but my love affair with the 18th century
(history and fiction) didn’t begin until shortly after I moved to the
west coast in the 1990s, thanks to the books I fell in with here. Living
so far away from the “scene of the time” makes research for my 18th
century-set novels a bit trickier. It also spurs me to do more thorough
research, and along the way learn stuff I might never have known to look
for, which in turn inspires new stories.
