My new cozy mystery Hazards in Hampshire: a British Book Tour Mystery has flown out to Coffeetown Press under my new name, Emma Dakin. They bought a three-book series and I am busy with all the promotional material that goes with producing a book. It came out in October and is available in paperback, ebook and audio. Audio is a new experience for me and my character sounds so English! Well, she is English. My next book Crime in Cornwall is scheduled for release on Oct 13, 2020. My third is just getting my finishing touches and I've scheduled the research trip for the fourth.

Kayaks, the substitute for outrigger canoes.


The pandemic is easing here as more people are adhering to the public health guidelines and the heat of summer is slowly coming. We have fewer infections and very few deaths. Our social distancing remains, but more and more businesses are opening and life begins to look a bit more ‘normal’. I am setting a book in post pandemic times and that is taking an
