Lots of Research FOR BONES IN THE ATTIC
Yes, this one took some research. Never having encountered an old skeleton in a trunk, I had to ask for help. I needed to find out what the skeleton would look like after the length of time it had been hidden away. Thankfully, belonging to PSWA I had several people who gave me the information I needed.
I also had to find out how cadaver dogs worked for another plot thread. A PSWA member came through for me there too, putting me in touch with someone who works with cadaver dogs.
There's another fire in this one, and any questions I had were answered by my fire-fighting friend, Brent Gill.
And about the main plot in the story, someone shared her experience with me and because it was so bizarre, I never forgot it.
