Not all offices are on land. Here is an article in Coastal CT Magazine about my habits of writing on boats. http://www.coastalconnecticut.com/not-all-in-the-same-boat/
One of the most popular accessories in Martha’s Vineyard is wampum, made by the local indian tribe. I just got this bracelet carved from purple parts of local clamshells – (see the shard next to the bracelet).
While sailing off the coast of Nantucket we came across this mega-yacht. I think it would make a good villain boat in my book. The Stolen Chalice has a boat like this for Lady Xandra Sommerset.
A lot of Washington moves to Martha’s Vineyard for the month of August, when I am there. The dinner parties are lavish affairs. The clothes are casual but the conversations are not.
Some birthdays are so perfect, they defy description.
They say when one door closes, another opens. Looking for another door in Nantucket.
While researching my next Sinclair novel, I went to King’s College,Cambridge and was fascinated by this statue of Henry VIII.
Part of the pleasure of writing adventure novels is doing the research. Here in the basement of the Natural History Museum in London I look at marine samples in order to write my character Cordelia Stapleton, who is an oceanographer.
SUMMER OF FIRE – the third in the John Sinclair/ Cordelia Stapleton series is coming May 19th.
