I have several favorite time periods, eras I would enjoy researching if I ever turned my attention to historical fiction.
- Dark Ages and Medieval Europe
- The Golden Age of Exploration — I did my research paper for my history major on Prince Henry the Navigator of Portugal.
- Victorian era — Especially Europe, but any location during this time period in which Sherlock Holmes could plausibly appear.
- Golden Age of Hollywood — Since I love movies from the 1930’s, ’40’s and ’50’s, I’ve already read a lot about the people working in the Hollywood studio system. A mystery set then would be fun to write.
So what’s your favorite?
