It's more of a conventional thriller in the sense of no hybrid structure, no long-ago past storyline. I've had a ball writing it, and it's partly based on a trip I made to Guatemala, so it's been fun bringing the setting and culture alive--especially during this COVID era, when we can't travel! Thanks for asking, and I apologize I never saw this question when it was first posted two months ago. (!) (less)

I love to travel and research my novels' settings: Spain (The Spanish Bow); Italy (The Detour); Taiwan and Japan (Plum Rains), even Baltimore (Behave). (less)

“Since I was a very small boy, traveling from town to town, three hundred days a year, I learned to love this life. The cradlelike rock and sway of the train, the hospitality of our countrymen, the gentle hearts of our countrywomen. You will find that, as long as you keep moving, there is no end to the delights awaiting you. But you must keep moving, Feliu. Even when the heart skips; even when the view blurs.”
Andromeda Romano-Lax, The Spanish Bow

“A lot of well-meaning and important people take an interest in eugenics,” Father said, still maintaining that curiously even tone. “Roosevelt does. Alexander Graham Bell does.” “And Margaret Sanger,” Mother chipped in. “A number of progressives.”
Andromeda Romano-Lax, Behave

“Books have a unique way of stopping time in a particular moment and saying: Let’s not forget this.”
