In my writography I make many references—written and photographically—to my novel, Intertwined Love, partly because I am so immersed in completing the first draft, and partly because, over a period of 10 years, it’s become a part of who I am.
I use real names in the novel. One character is French emigre Louis Des Isles, my 7th generation back ancestor. I visited Lamoine Beach, Maine (one of themajor settings in my novel) with other Des Isles descendants:
My novel has its own website, Intertwined Love, on which I post information related to the novel. It includes a synopsis, character sketches, and general background information. including:
- MADAME ROSALIE BACLER de la VAL: A Character Sketch
- Enoch Arden and Louis des Isles: Story Plots
- Doing Historical Research in Philadelphia
My latest background post was done in March, 2015:
I have dedicated the time between January 15 and April 15 to completing the first draft of the writing I refer to as my novel-under-construction. While doing so I am posting three update reports on my progress:
- Ooooh, It’s Time Rise..to Prepare to Write (Feb. 11, 2015)
- Ooooh, It’s Time to Rise…to Prepare to Write: Part 2 (March 15, 2015)
I will use this page to update you on my progress (over the next 10 years???) and on specific posts related to the novel.
Posting this page makes me accountable to you, my readers, on my progress, making it less likely I will give up on the work. Thank you for your support.
