Very nice to meet you. Sorry to be slow to respond. I've been out of town to be on a panel at the Murder in the Grove Con in Boise and computer access has been iffy. I love the outer banks. I've spent several summer weeks in various years there. I watch nervously every hurricane season. Your books sound very interesting. How did you decide on 1954 for the Cape Hatteras time period?
Thanks for the invite - gratefully accepted. I've been to the Outer Banks a couple of times; they're beautiful. And I love lighthouses. You're my second Crimespace friend. LA Starks beat you. Last I heard, she might be looking for my mind.
Many thanks for the invite - gladly accepted. I love the idea of your taking coastline and lighthouses for settings. I'm doing somewhat the same thing here with a book I'm trying to get published here in France. I don't know your patch of coast - although I'm familiar with the Olympic Peninsula, Puget Sound and various coastal spots in Oregon and California - but mine is possibly a little different: it's the wild, rugged coastline of Brittany, western France, home to countless legends and lots of real-life adventures.
I'm glad you're enjoying the Molly books, Nikki.
If you read the latest, In Dublin's Fair City, you'll find a very different trandatlantic crossing in first class cabin (complete with body, of course!)
