Historical Fiction should immerse the audience in the rich details of the past. Author Tamatha Cain knows that to recreate the past, sometimes you need to reach out, ask questions, and talk to those who know. In this Flordia Writer Podcast, host Alison Nissen and Tamatha chat about her upcoming historical fiction novels Song of the Chimney Sweep and Only Oona, about the 4th wife of Charlie Chaplin.
