Laurell K. Hamilton shares how a research visit to Ireland threw her off her game at first

It has been many years since I read a book by Laurell K. Hamilton, but I thought this interview about her research trip to Ireland was pretty interesting (even if she manages to offend a bunch of people in a few sentences!).

If that shocked her, she’d be very surprised by Britain and New Zealand and other places, too!

It is a perfect example of people basing their books on assumptions and stereotypes and then having their eyes opened to a totally different version of a country when they actually visit.
