Pennsylvania is a state filled with rich history. Our first nation's capitol was Philadelphia. The major turning point in the Civil War – Gettysburg – is in Pennsylvania.
There's shoo fly pie and cheese steaks, Rocky, rabid sports fans, and so much more.
Earlier this year, my family and I went to Gettysburg. I love going to museums to learn interesting tidbits about minor characters, those history has almost forgotten. Only one civilian died during the battle of Gettysburg. A nurse stayed by a patient's bedside until he died and ended up meeting and marrying his brother years later.
It's no wonder, with my love of history, that I write historicals. Most of mine are Regencies, but even my fantasy stories tend to have medieval-like roots to them. I'd love to write a story loosely based on that nurse one day. With all the rich history of Pennsylvania, I can write stories about so many wonderful figures and never run out of source material.
