Belinda Kroll talks Quirky Historical Fiction on Page Readers

Belinda Kroll joined me on Page Readers to talk about her newest novel "Haunting Miss Trentwood."

Belinda describes her work as Quirky Historical Fiction because she adds in such interesting twists that she just can't call it regular historical fiction.  After talking with her about her work, I'd say she's got it right.

Haunting Miss Trentwood is about a young woman who set aside her own life to take care of her father at the end of his life.  Then during his funeral, his daughter sees him climb out of his casket and continues to have to deal with him and his fatherly input as she tries to get on with her life again.  Sound quirky enough for you?

But, this wasn't even the best part of the interview!  Belinda wrote and self published her first book, "Catching the Rose" almost a decade ago when she was in high school.  In Internet speak, a decade ago is an eternity - I think we were still listening to dial tones that far back!  And self publishing?  It certainly wasn't as easy as CreateSpace is today!
