A fascinating interview with Sharon K. Middleton about her latest book, "Beyond McCarron's Corner: Sassy's Story," a fictional tale about a woman who is transported back in time to the Revolutionary War era.
Your book is certainly about a very interesting period of American History. The Culper Spy Ring was such an important group of patriots during the American Revolution. They were willing to sacrifice everything to help free America from England. I hope you will tell us what got you interested in this clandestine organization.
Before we talk more about your book, please give a quick introduction of who you are and where you came from to the readers who have not yet read your work.
I am an attorney in Alvin, Texas. I am planning to retire next year. I have lived in Texas all my life. Like Sassy, I’m Irish and Hispanic (and French and Russian and Scandinavian and Caucasian according to Ancestry.com). I grew up in San Antonio, and I went to Trinity University, like Sassy. But I did not marry my History Professor! In addition to writing, I enjoy raising and showing Skye terriers and quilting (also like Sassy). I have been married to the same man since 1974. We have two sons and a daughter and six grandkids in addition to the six dogs.
In your research for your book did you read other books about spys from that era like, “The Spy: a Tale of the Neutral Ground,” by James Fenimore Cooper,” or The Culper Ring: The History and Legacy of the Revolutionary War's Most Famous Spy Ring by Charles River Editors?”
