Re: on the topic of reading...
Aha! I've never been to BC, but I'm from Winnipeg originally - hence the CanCon in the stories. Well, there would be some anyway, since Logan's Canadian, but I probably write more of it because of my Canadian ties. I went to university in Montreal (McGill), so I set some scenes there, too. I do lots of research when I'm writing about places I've never been, but when it's places I know, it's easier.
I first read that Sandburg poem in high school. The teacher said that she *thought* it was based on a real incident and then one of the kids in the class, whose mother had been in the Norwegian Underground in WW2 said she *knew* it was because her mother had known The Man With the Broken Fingers.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!
