You know that feeling you have when you meet someone who’s extraordinary in some way and you just can’t enough of hearing about them and their fantastic and interesting life? Yeah, well that’s what happens at Writer’s conferences (not a typo, I’m really loving my Writer friends these days and feel that the noun is more than proper, it’s downright Germanic).
I’m talking about Susan Spann who is in the process of taking the “his” out of history and making it “herstory”(see what’s happenin’ on twitter – @susanspann). She’s written not one but two historical novels featuring Moulin and Joan of Arc (though she’ll be the first to tell you that the title “D’Arc” was never used by our heroine during her lifetime). Not only is Susan breathing new life into history, she’s giving these powerful women a voice of their own, something I know more than just I can appreciate. I can’t wait to get my hands on copies of these novels and spend some time in ancient China and 15th Century France. Who can?
