Detroit Smuggler's Routes: a map commission

Your adventure awaits...  

Detroit Smuggler's Routes: realm of Claudia Oltean A map commission by D.N.Frost @DNFrost13 Part 1 of a series.
This post is Part 1 of a series to augment the Map Commission FAQ available for free download.

This and other map commissions are gathered in my World Map Portfolio for you to explore.


One day, I awoke to an email from Claudia Oltean and her husband. She'd discovered my maps on Twitter and decided I'd be the perfect person to create a map for her debut novel.

Claudia writes historical fiction about newspaper reporters in a time of mayhem, crime, and corruption. Her late grandfather, a Detroit journalist throughout the Prohibition era, inspired her tales with his daring adventures.

Smuggler's Supply Routes, a map commission by D.N.Frost for Claudia Oltean Part 1 of a series.
To help her readers understand the Detroit area, Claudia wanted a map to show the river and Canadian border.

When she saw my maps, she noticed that I live in Michigan, and the match felt ideal to her.

I was delighted by her interest, and I loved Claudia's passion to showcase her grandfather's exploits in a series of novels.

Moreover, I was thrilled for another real-world map, especially one so close to home.

I reviewed Claudia's list of map needs, sent her an enthused map estimate, and got to work on her first render as soon as she signed it.

That's it for this post! Up Next: Carving out the coasts.
