I'm Cheryl Russell, fiction writer and adjunct professor. :) Currently revising a novel that includes supernatural and local history elements. 

Reading is my superpower. Unless it is romance. That genre is my kryptonite, sapping my will to read. :)

Aloha Cheryl. Welcome to the pit. 

And where is "local" for local history elements? I'm thinking Oh, hi-oh, but someplace more specific? 

I don't know what romance is, so I figure better to leave it to others who have a better grasp of the material.

Hi Cheryl! Same question as Thuggish.

Also, I've read exactly one romance. It was about a Vegas magician named Rock Powers. I'll skip the boring stuff and say that he fights his nemesis, who has a rocket launcher with a bayonet attached. This was awesome, but not nearly awesome enough to justify reading the damn thing.

Jose, "local" is the Tuscarwas County, Ohio. Schoenbrunn,  Zoar Village, Fort Laurens, to name a few. :)

Thuggish and Helpfulsnowman-good question. Not sure of the exact path; I do know it involved following links, most likely through Twitter.
