‘Far Away Bird’: Six Questions for Douglas A. Burton [INTERVIEW]

Douglas A. Burton

Douglas A. Burton is a man fascinated by the role heroes and heroines play in our culture. Now he’s written a book about one of his favorites.

We don’t always advertise it as such, but we love a good hero story. Whether we’re watching the latest incarnation of Superman or Spider-Man or reading about more mortal heroes like Atticus Finch or Jack Reacher (although let’s face it, they kind of have their own brand of super powers), we love to have someone to cheer for. That’s one of the reasons we recently chatted with Douglas A. Burton, author of Far Away Bird, a novel based on one woman who made a big splash in history quite a long time ago. We hope you enjoy our interview as much as we did! —J&H Read more of this post

Looking back at all those history classes I took during college, I recall being fascinated by the time period surrounding the Crusades. It was a bleak era filled with much bloodshed, and yet the stories of the Templar knights always seemed mysterious and adventurous despite it all. Now Susanne Dunlap brings those same qualities to her own work with her engrossing Orphans of Tolosa trilogy, and its latest installment, The Spirit of Fire. We were delighted she stopped by to chat about the new volume. We hope you enjoy this exclusive interview. —J&H Read more of this post
