Cincinnatus is a work of fiction, but it’s based around real people and real places.
Did Ed Leedskalnin and Lewis Crosley really clink glasses and share secrets? No, but they might have if they ever crossed paths. Both men sure had some stories.
Is the Society of the Cincinnati actually embroiled in a plot to change the course of American history? Probably not, but with all the secrecy you never know.
Can you really golf in the middle of the ocean? Only if you’re a member of the Cat Cay Yacht Club.
Do attorneys and golfers join forces to uncover supernatural secrets and bust draconian plots? In my mind they do.
Plenty of interesting characters and story-inspiring settings already exist.
Suffering from writer’s block? Look around.
