My suspense novel is set mostly in Ottawa between December 1915 and February 1916, with some excursions to New York City and London, England.

When I was researching the background for Fire on the Hill I was surprised by how not sleepy Ottawa was during this time period. Here is a very short listing of the various interesting and surprising events that occurred during these two months. The list covers the following themes: The Weather, Spies and Saboteaurs, Home Front and Social events, Belgian Relief, Politics, War Effort and Sports.
