There is no difference whether she is writing about a fictional character, such as in The Journal of Augustus Pelletier: The Lewis and Clark Expedition, 1804, for the My Name is America series, or a real character, such as in Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor, England, 1544, for the Royal Diaries series.  "My responsibility as a author is to write with authenticity and accuracy and it does not vary whether the character is real or fictional," states Lasky.    Kathryn Lasky lives with her husband in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
