For me, the hardest part was making sure the towns were distinct. South Cove - the Tourist Trap town, is all about the businesses. And a lot of people live in apartments in their buildings. Tea Cups and Carnage, the newest book opens a new business on Main Street.

In my new series, The Cat Latimer mysteries, it's all about the neighborhoods. Large, old houses, a small college campus, and a town that survives because of it. Not to mention the mountains surrounding the area and the winter fun opportunities.

I write small town stories, but all small towns aren't the same. (less)

Now, my Council series is paranormal, so avoid that one, but it's the only set of books that fall into the woo-woo lane. :) (less)

“I think any reading is good reading, even if it's commercial fiction. A good story well told is worth the time”
Lynn Cahoon, If the Shoe Kills

“As much as I loved my computer, I wondered if I would ever know the joy of getting a letter from someone I loved, being able to pour over its contents time and time again, to feel the paper that he touched, and to know he took the time to share his day.”
Lynn Cahoon, Guidebook to Murder

“If you hold anger in your heart, it just turns to evil. You have to be able to see the good in people, even those people in whom you think there isn’t even a speck of good left.”
Lynn Cahoon, Killer Run

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Marilyn Monroe

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Albert Einstein

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”
Mark Twain

“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.”
