After 18 years in the high desert of the high Sierras of Northern Nevada, we sold our house last month and moved to the central coast of California.

The beach is usually that empty-amazing. My Lindsey McCall fans might recall that Lindsey and Rich moved to the central coast in The Price of Genius (the third book in the series).

I have also put Plausible Liars aside for a while. And returned to my ancient novel series with my new book, The Reluctant Queen. I did this for a number of reasons, primarily that right now I am unable to do justice to my antagonist in Plausible Liars and hope that after several months of living in the 3rd century BC with Queen Esther, I can return to my elusive character in Plausible Liars.
