while doing research for a book?
That thought struck me after my visit with my doctor. We had been discussing my scuba certifications when he asked if I had signed on with the Search & Recovery unit in our area. Uh, no, ewww. Finding water bloated dead bodies with pieces missing is not something I want to have burned in my brain. I watch “Jaws” and still see that damn leg floating down to the ocean bottom.
As writers we don’t have to experience everything to write about it, just have a good understanding. That means doing some research then layering it into the story. Nothing is worse than an info dump, unless it’s wrong!
While I might not be much on bodies, I’d love to rescue a few coins from the ocean.
