My first Young Adult historical fantasy, Jewels in Time, has just been released.
My previous books are mysteries set in England and the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Clare.
I love travel, languages and learning about different cultures. I have lived in seven states and spent seven years in Costa Rica. I love new challenges, and my current one is learning to play the ukelele. I live in North Carolina with my husband and two cats, Tang and Sirius Black.

Browsing in a Bookstore. Yes! Really!

Is there anything more pleasurable than browsing in a bookstore? I have always loved the feeling of turning my head sideways to look at the books on the shelf in a bookstore or library. And how about this? Half an hour with the bookstore to yourself to browse to your heart’s content, after you put on your mask and gloves of course.
