Goodreads asked Mary Chamberlain:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Mary Chamberlain To immerse yourself in the imagination is a huge luxury and a freedom. At the same time, solving logistical and logical problems of narrative, plot, characters and setting is a stimulating intellectual challenge. I have written histories, and I now write historical fiction, so conveying a feel for period, combines for me my love of both history and literature!
