I know authors sometimes like to talk about how much research they did for a certain scene, but there are a few I’ve written I could almost entirely off the top of my head you might be surprised about…Here’s a short list.
Elynn setting the laminar flow hood on fire in Making Her His, because yes…I’ve done this. More than once. One time I knocked it over and set the entire bench surface on fire.
The gene therapy explanation Jack gives Derrick in the upcoming Tooth and Nail. Most of that was memory. I only had to look up plasmid names.
The scene describing Gia’s home village and what food to mention cause that’s just stuff I wanted to eat at the time. Anytime Hispanic food is mentioned, it’s because I’m hungry and want my mom to make/buy that item.
When Logan explains epigenetics to the werewolves in Air. It’s by no means exhaustive, in fact it barely scratches the surface but I like to throw in biological details to all my books because that’s my background.
What a slime mold looks like in Fire. Really, anything fungal-related in my books. My PhD is in microbiology but my focus was on fungi and genome-level technology.
