10 Fabulous Books Set In Paris

  Paris offers an incredible backdrop for all kinds of stories. Whether it’s a historical tale, a thriller, a romance…the city itself adds a wonderful element of, well, je ne sais quois. My second book is set in Paris, and it was pure pleasure to write a story set in a city I love so much. I have been lucky enough to have visited Paris several times, and I was honored to have reviewers comment that reading my book made them feel like they were right there, nibbling croissants, climbing the Eiffel Tower, exploring the misty streets of Montmartre….… Read the rest

ThrillerFest in New York!

In just a few days I’ll be heading to New York. Yes, the mothership for writers. The reason I’m going, besides the general awesomeness of NYC? I’m going to ThrillerFest!

Travel Files: The Best Things About London

London is one of my favorite cities in the world. I’ve been lucky enough to have spent quite a bit of time there–my husband and I have enjoyed two sabbaticals in the UK, first in the year after we were married, and again when we had a four year old son (we now have two boys). My parents both come from Britain–my father was born and raised in London and my mother in Wales–and much of my extended family is still over there.… Read the rest

10 Fabulous Things To Do In Vancouver

I went to Vancouver last weekend (because my little sister had a baby! A story, perhaps, for another time…). But while there, I remembered how much I love Vancouver.  My husband and I were born and raised in Ontario. We decided to move to the West Coast a decade ago, after having lived much of our lives in the “East” of Canada (sidebar: it’s not actually the east of Canada so much as the center–there are several provinces farther east than Ontario–but everyone on the West Coast refers to Toronto as the East.… Read the rest
