A mystery from my own life! I'd have to write a whole series to cover all my mysteries!!!
Why would a young woman leave a comfortable position in Mexico to move to the U.S. and struggle to support herself and her young son. I think that would make a great novel.
Let me know if you have other questions!

The Writer’s Creative Mind

My husband, Bob, and I were enjoying our morning coffee recently when he looked out the window at the fence of live bamboo. I’d planted it to avoid looking into our neighbor’s living room. And of course, I’d placed containers in the ground to prevent the plant from spreading outward and conquering the world, as bamboo likes to do. What caught Bob’s attention was the height it had achieved. He sugg

Glass Houses by Louise Penny
The Crown made “remote” sound disagreeable, as though the further one got from a major city, the less civilized life became. Which might be true, thought Gamache. But he’d seen the results of so-called civilization and he knew that as many beasts lived in cities as in forests.
This was exactly our experience when Michael and I moved out of Montreal and into the ‘hinterlands’ south of Montreal. Honestly, you’d think we had to check our brains at the city limits. Many of our friends predicted we wouldn’t last a year. Twenty years later I’m still happily in the country, with more friends, more culture, more of a rich social life than we ever experienced in the city. Not that Montreal doesn’t have magnificent art and music. It does. But what people in cities might not realize is the richness of life in the country. And that the city, for all it has to offer, can be ...more
