The Black Falls trilogy gets a new (wintry) look!

Okay, I know technically it’s still summer, but we’re stacking cordwood and getting our flowerbeds ready for winter. I can’t say w’ere ready for snow, ice and sub-freezing temps! In fiction, maybe? Along with some pretty pictures of winter in Vermont? 😉

I wrote Cold Pursuit, the first book in my New York Times and USA Today Black Falls trilogy, during a particularly snowy winter in Vermont. Research was easy enough: I just looked out the window or strapped on my snowshoes and headed into the woods. It’s on sale in eBook right now for just $2.49 (that could ch… Read More

Visiting the English Cotswolds

Whatever time of year, rain or shine, Joe and I have enjoyed our visits to the Cotswolds west of London. Now we need to visit when it snows! Or just go again, anytime. The rolling hills of this beautiful part of the English countryside are crisscrossed with marked trails. I bought a big map–yes, paper–to guide us. We did go astray a few times, but that’s half the fun. Well. Except for that time when I got into nettle. I hadn’t done that since I was a kid and it stung. Our inn was very helpful in providing baking soda, not to mention a terrific gin-and-tonic, and I was back on th… Read More
