363: Dual Point of View in Historical Fiction — Interview with Denny S. Bryce
Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing award-winning debut author Denny S. Bryce.
Denny won the RWA Golden Heart® and was a three-time GH finalist, including twice for Wild Women and the Blues. She also writes book reviews for NPR Books and entertainment articles for FROLIC Media.
Additionally, the former professional dancer and public relations professional is a self-proclaimed history geek. She credits this obsession to her maternal grandmother, Ella Elizabeth Joseph, who immigrated from Montego Bay, Jamaica, to New York City in 1923. Recently, Denny relocated from Northern Virginia to Savannah, Georgia.
In this episode Denny and I discuss:
- What she hoped to accomplish by writing about two vastly different generations.
- Why she loves the third person close POV and what it creates for readers.
- How she built the world of 1920s Jazz Age Chicago and the Black Renaissance.
Plus, her #1 tip for writers.
