I love to read and to research, and all my novels have begun by my devouring fact and fiction on subject matters that interest me. I am grateful for both the internet sources and the written materials that helped me write z2.
z2 is interactive in the sense that all electronic versions of it contain one or two links per chapter which take the reader to music, photos or a short news item or article to serve as an enhancement to the story. The links on the Amazon version all work on a Kindle Fire, and the links in the other versions will open when the book is read on an internet capable device. The book can be read just fine without going to any of the links. They are not essential to the plot.
Links to music are given on a separate page called Music in z2. Photos and information on the locations where this story takes place can be found on the page called Guatemala and Belize.
This page contains information on the remaining eleven links that I thought would most enhance the reader’s experience. Each is followed by enough of an excerpt from the book to provide context. I hope you enjoy exploring them as much as I did.
At the end I provide a few additional general links. Please know that it is my intent to be accurate, respectful of all cultures, and open-minded about various points of view. If I have fallen short, it is regretted. Inclusion of a source below in no way implies that source’s endorsement.
