Biography can be really dry and boring stuff, a string of facts without seasoning or flavor. In this episode, I'll teach you how to use genealogical research of your subject to add spice and life to a biographical book or project. I'll tell you how I'm using it to write a book of my own, and show you how much juicy deliciousness you can add to basic facts if you work to understand the entirety of your subject's life. If you want to stand out from other biographers or non-fiction writers and find a style that is uniquely yours, season with family history. Then, call me with a question you want played and answered on air! Over 300 downloads now...thank you :)
