Pause for Panama Research

Feeling I needed a little more research, I have hit the pause button on my Goldlisters of Panama. That was a good move.  I have gained more insight on the Canal construction having read Panama Fever by Mathew Parker, gathered helpful craft advice on how to handle my main character through Libbie Hawker’s Making it in Historical Fiction.

Meanwhile I’ve enjoyed reading together with Carol, Anthony Doerr’s Pulitzer Prize winning historical fiction, All the Light We Cannot See. I highly recommend this book. A beautifully written story of a blind ten-year-old girl’s survival in WWII occupied France and her connection to the young German soldier who saved her.

I think I’m re-motivated to continue Goldlisters of Panama.

Author: Dick

I have to tell you right up front. I’m a story teller. After graduation from the Coast Guard Academy in 1957, my twenty-eight years of active duty have given me a lot of fodder. I finally heeded my daughter’s pleas, “Dad, you have got to write those stories down,” and published my memoirs in 1975. Caught up in the writing experience, I moved on to publish a novel in 2019 and I'm continuing to write. It's my new number 1 hobby.
