It seems at first glance as though this book should not be classed among the novels, but should be more seriously considered as an historical work. It is a romance certainly, yet it is set about so closely by fact that the effect is singularly real.
Patti Larsen is one of those authors who listens to her characters and let them tell their stories through her pen. Sydlynn Hayles came to her one night, urging her to write Family Magic - Larsen had no idea that Syd would still be with her twenty books later. As our Author of the Day, Larsen reveals her secret skills, talks about the importance of family and chats about her work schedule.
