Goodreads asked Barbara Venkataraman:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Barbara Venkataraman My most recent book is "Peril in the Park," the third in the Jamie Quinn mystery series. Since Jamie's boyfriend works in the county parks department, it seemed like a fun idea to set a mystery there. Also, it was great fun for me to visit all of the parks and festivals to research the story. Maybe I should set my next book on a cruise ship or a casino so I can do more research! :-)
