How difficult or easy it is to write the sequel?

Linda Mc Cabe started reading Greek Mythology as a child. She adored the larger than life stories of heroism, pride, hubris and tragedy. As an adult she became enchanted with the Harry Potter series and was inspired to read the classic – Orlando Fursioso by Ludovico Ariosto. What struck her from that work was the impossible love between the warrior maiden Bradamante and a Saracen knight Ruggiero. As important a love story as Arthur and Guinevere or Tristan and Isolde, she adapted the poem into a novel suitable for modern day audiences.

To aid in her novel’s research, she traveled twice to France scouring museums in Paris and trekking through medieval hilltop villages in the Midi – Pyrenees. She had writing a number of opinion/editorials published the Sonoma County paper, the Press Democrat, is past president of Redwood Writers

She is working on the sequel to Quest of the Warrior Maiden and that’s what we are discussing today. How difficult or easy it is to write the sequel?

Word of the Week:

Brillenbrillans ( brhl-lants)

The sudden, innervating clarity afforded by new glasses.

From Schottenfreude – German words for the Human Condition, by Ben Schott


1. White noise. I love the sound of water – many do. Sitting by a pool in Vegas, the perpetual fountains masked the sound of the road just on the other side of a retaining wall. What is your favorite white noise? Is white noise good? Or can it distract from reality?

2. Write the ultimate car crash scene.

Tortured Sentences:

Aim at Chartier, Where discretion is a master word, has some spirit remains, That behavior has any turns into a converted customer. Commitment and respect of the customers are not vain words.  Have you observed, the restaurant is a proof Itself. No silk, no crystal, no silverware, the soul purpose and the authenticity of a unique and timeless space.

    Hello Damien and Catherine,

    Thank you again for inviting me to be a guest on your podcast. The hour went by quickly as the conversation was a lot of fun.

    I decided to blog about it and here is a link to that post where I actually quote from the book I referenced mentioning the consumption of beaver meat.

    (And I hope I got the HTML tags right, otherwise I apologize if it looks all weird.)
