The fourth of my mystery series featuring Nara Blake was released in September, 2021. I have enjoyed watching Nara progress from a naive young woman to an art expert sharing life with her love, Alex Collier, and investigating crimes along the way.
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.

Travel for Inspiration and Other Things

Most of my inspiration for writing comes when I travel. There is something about being in a new place where I can free my mind from everyday tasks that stimulates my imagination.

That bed and breakfast became the setting for most of the story. We also trav Read more of this blog post »
