Historical Fiction

I love reading good historical fiction. Have a passion for it. Over the years I've read a lot of great books that are quite memorable and here's a few of them. Some of these are rather recent and I'm quite impressed with the level of research I've been seeing.

The Luck of the Weissensteiners by Christoph Fisher
Shindler's List by Thomas Keneally

Chesapeake by James A Mitchner
Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand
11/22/63 by Steven King
Fallls the Shadow by Sharon K Penman
Tempest at Dawn by James Best
War Brides by Helen Bryan
Seducing the Knight by Gerri Russell
The Devils Tide by Matt Tomerlin
The Devils Fire by Matt Tomerlin
The Cartographer -1492 by Othniel J.Seiden

Probably one of the best crime drama/historical fiction I've ever read would be:

Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

I even love writing it as long as I can find a good horror twist which is actually pretty easy. Mankind has been really disturbing for a long time. To tell you truth, the idea of the knights holding a code of ethics close is largely a myth. Many of the knights did very bad things in real life. One of the main reasons for the Inquisition isn't what you think it was, it was a way to grab peoples property. Presently I'm working on a piece that will be set during the Wars of the Roses time. Very interesting piece so far and I'm still in the research phases.
