I was quite chuffed this weekend to hear two of the speakers at the Shorelines Festival mention both Paracelsus and John Dee, two personalities who have inspired some of the themes and characters in my second novel, "The Book of Thoth"...
I have reached the point in my manuscript when I need to stop and do more research.
I did do quite a lot of research while writing the background story to the book, whilst deciding on what to write, where, when, etc. But now that I have arrived at a crucial first cornerstone in the book, the only way forward is to immerse myself into research again: the 1920s, alchemy, Ancient Egypt...
I think therefore I write.
