Working with Family

The Secret Lives of Evelyn continues to fill my days.

However, today I was in contact with a coroner in England to see if I can get the details of E's death. Since I am not family, they will not release it to me. On the bright side, E's GG granddaughter in England has agreed to email the coroner to see what she can find. I think she is equally curious to know more about her fascinating relative.

I now have an "accomplice" in my quest for the truth!

I forgot to mention that I found some other interesting details around E's husband the other day. Very exciting...

Not Very Often...

I got to do something yesterday that not many people can say they have done.

During my research for The Secret Lives of Evelyn, I have hit road blocks, discovered scandal, uncovered shocking details, and much more. I have also gotten in contact with E's direct descendants.

However, yesterday, I had the pleasure of introducing two of E's relatives to each other.

One is her GG granddaughter, who lives in England, and the other is her great granddaughter who lives in Montana. Neither new the other existed, so their reunion should be quite enlightening. It's so cool to think that E's relatives on two different continents are now connected!

It was one of those feel good days, and hey, today is still the same!!!

Well, I am just about done with most of my research, although I still have many unanswered questions. However, at some point, I have to start writing.

Today is that day...

Movie and More

I was just thinking about all the details and the journey I am on because of The Secret Lives of Evelyn.

Thank goodness I am documenting so much of the journey here, because in the book someone will see the day that Evelyn died. However, they will have no idea how long it took me to find that one fact, unless they are following this.

That got me to thinking that with all the attention on the Julie and Julia movie that I should get one! LOL

This journey has had some ups and downs, highs and lows, surprises, and much more. My publisher says my journey to find Evelyn's secrets is as interesting as Evelyn herself!

I found Ev's final resting place today. I feel a little sad...
