About the Class:

Historical romances should transport readers to another time and another place. This workshop will help you with the tools you need to transport your readers. Workshop will cover a discussion of all the elements that make a historical romance historical. Items covered include aspects of research, such as where to look for information, how accurate you should be and keeping records of your research. Also covered is how to integrate your information in to the framework of your story through the craft of writing. Topics covered will be settings and costume, attitudes and social mores, dialog, including using dialect or not and, of course- sex scenes.

About the Instructor:

Terry Irene Blain was lucky enough to grow up in a large Midwestern family with a rich oral tradition. As a child she heard stories of her ancestor’s adventures with Indians, wild life and weather so naturally she gravitated to the study of history in college.
Her military service was as an electronic technician at Miramar Naval Air Station in San Diego where she helped maintain the radio communication gear for both the Navy and the civilian Air Traffic Control Facility.
After the service, she used the GI bill to continue her education and received her Masters in History along with a second BA in European Studies which she used to teach US History and Western Civilization at the college level. Married to a sailor (now retired) for over thirty years, she’s had the chance to live in various parts of the country and to travel to foreign places such as Hong Kong, Australia, England and Scotland.
Terry says: “My degrees in history and my teaching experience make me a natural to write historical romance. Writing historical romance gives me the opportunity to pass on stories of who we are and where we come from while exploring the relationship between men and women. What could be more fun than that?”
