A restless soul and adventurer at heart, she spent years moving around the US and traveling to exotic locales before she wrote her first novel and was hooked. More than a dozen books later, she now makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Mark, and several imaginary characters who like to tell her what to do. Her most recent books include the Claire Whitcomb Western Series: Retribution, Gunslinger, and Legend, and the latest i

Thanks for your question. My experience with Africa stems from a close friend who is a hot-air balloon pilot who lived in Tanzania and now lives in Kenya. And certainly, a ton of research goes into my books--interviews, articles, travel, etc.--whether I've visited the area in question or not. My hope is that I capture the essence of each setting as authentically as possible.
Best,
DV

Carl Hiaasen shared a note and highlight from
Strip Tease by Carl Hiaasen
He was chronically ill-suited for the responsibilities that come with lawful behavior.
If you’ve ever visited a prison, you’ve seen more than a few people that you know will never be rehabilitated, never turn over a new leaf, never be anything but criminals until the day they die. Sad but true. Martin Scorcese and Quentin Tarantino wouldn’t have careers if there weren’t men and women like that.

What’s next on your reading list?
My latest novel, SQUEEZE ME, comes out on Aug. 25th. It’s set mostly in Palm Beach, a rich island town where there are no strip clubs. There are, however, mega-mansions where all sorts of mischief goes on. I also threw in a giant python and a President who can barely fit into his tanning bed. Again, there are historical precedents. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50644565-squeeze-me

Strip Tease by Carl Hiaasen
“Of course there’s no hope,” García said, “but don’t let it get you down.”
Al Garcia is one of my favorite and most reliable detective characters, inspired by a Miami homicide cop I knew back in the wild days of the cocaine wars. If you didn’t have a sense of humor back then, the streets could swallow your soul.
