Have you visited your local Renaissance Faire? I didn’t even know we had a local Ren Faire until a few years ago. I thought those were the kinds of things saved for large cities or much cooler places than rural Ohio. I was wrong. Oh, so wrong. When I started writing book one in my new series, A Geek Girl’s Guide to Murder, I went on a research binge and it started with a Ren Faire. Turned out, we have two amazing Faire locations within driving distance of my home, and my family quickly became a set of goofy regulars. From my techy husband to my dragon slaying boys and tiny princess, the Lindseys love the Ren Faire! In case there are others out there who think Faires are out of reach: They aren’t, and you need to give one a try before the nice weather slips through your nerdy fingertips. Not convinced? How about a little encouragement:
1. There’s no judgement at the Ren Faire.
Researching the local Faires for my Geek Girl Mysteries was the highlight of my summer, and I've got the local fall Faires on the family calendar. How about you? Are you a fan of the Faire?
