Bestselling Author Karen Essex Travels With Dracula


I’ve read every book by historical fiction author Karen Essex and never thought I’d have the opportunity to connect with her. As it turns out, Karen travels all over the world and relies on Boingo Wireless to keep her online! So thanks to Boingo, I had the chance to chat with the bestselling author about two favorite topics, books and travel.  As Karen explains, traveling is an important part of her book writing process: “As an historical novelist, nothing informs my work like travel.  I love to walk in my characters’ footsteps, breathing in the air that they breathed, literally sharing molecules with them.” I had just finished reading Karen’s latest masterpiece, Dracula in Love, and was fascinatedby the fact that Karen had visited the novel’s various settings, places that had lived vividly in my imagination during an all-consuming three-day read. Luckily, Karen obliged me with an interview. Check out the Q and A below with Karen Essex and ask her your own questions in the comments section. The first twenty-five folks to post a note to Karen will receive a free copy of Dracula in Love. What inspired you to write the literary thriller Dracula in Love? I’d first read Bram Stoker’s Dracula when I was fifteen

6 Travel Tips from Maria Libertati


How often do you travel? How many days are you on the road? I travel every 4-6 weeks and am on the road at least 150 days out of the year. Wouldn’t leave home without … My mini bottle of olive oil – for emergencies – to add flavor to food. Also a must have is a good pair of walking shoes or sneakers; walking is the best way to discover new sights and flavors. Favorite hotspot or haunt (club, restaurant, hidden gems)? My favorite winebar in Orvieto is La Champagneria. You will find this in Piazza Marconi, which is the principal piazza in Orvieto. When you go, ask for Gian Luca and Velia. Gian Luca is very knowledgeable about wines and liqueurs from all over the world, and the antipasti that Velia whips up to go with the drinks is heavenly. Grab a table outside under the stars (if it is not too cold outside) and you will have a splendid view of the whole piazza. If you are not knowledgeable about wines, tell Gian Luca the taste you are looking for and he will make a perfect choice and tell you all about your selection. Gian Luca is
