A Goodreads user asked Susanne Dunlap:

How long did it take you to research Romanov history to write "Anastasia's Secret"? :)

Susanne Dunlap Hi C.K.,

There's so much written about the Romanovs, but only a few bits that really apply to Anastasia's life—despite all the hype, and the myths surrounding it. I read pretty much everything I could get my hands on, especially accounts by people who actually knew them. I don't know how much time that took, but I always continue researching as I write, so I suppose it's a couple of years. There was also a wonderful website that has a lot of complete texts online, and links to other info as well, but the link appears to be broken (it's alexanderpalace.org).
