A new book, invaluable for anyone researching Mexico's Second Empire or "French Intervention," has just been published in Spanish by leading researchers Konrad Ratz and Amparo Gómez Tepexicuapan, Los viajes de Maximiliano en México (1864-1867). Read more about it over on my occasional blog, "Maximilian and Carlota," where I share my research from The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire, my novel set during the period-- as well as other tidbits.
The blog for the Marfa Mondays Podcasting Project: Exploring Marfa, Texas & Environs in 24 Podcasts, 2012-2013. All about the podcasts, plus photos, books, videos, and more about Marfa and the Big Bend.

A once-in-a-while-on-Tuesdays blog to share my (copius) research and other information related to my novel set during the 1860s in Mexico-- that tumultuous period known as the Second Empire or French Intervention.
