What is the most outlandish thing you've done in the name of research?
"Joined a coven* (*I really haven't, but I would like to visit one.)" - Heidi Kling, author of Sea.
"Outlandish? Get obsessed with figuring out human and wolf anatomy for the transformation scenes involving werewolves in Other and especially the sequel, Bloodborn, which is chock-full of werewolfy goodness. Also, visit a wolf sanctuary to see real wolves up close, but that told me more about how wolves behave in captivity than anything. But I can't think of anything really bad I've done. Yet." - Karen Kincy, author of Other.
"This isn’t really outlandish, but for a magazine article I once hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail with a group of strangers to get a feel for the community that the hikers develop while in the woods together for an extended period of time. It’s, um…creepy. In a very organic, granola kind of way. Let’s just say I scarfed down an entire pizza when I hit pavement again. (And I consider myself on the outdoorsy side, too!) " - Kristin Tubb, author of Selling Hope.
