Very accomplished fellow Explorer’s Club Member Christine Dennison writes up my book SUMMER OF FIRE on her blog. She is a true explorer in polar regions. http://myarcticdog.blogspot.com
Egypt on my mind today. Beautiful tombs visited on my research trip for The Stolen Chalice.
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/
Back in New York, the terrace has turned in to a jungle. Staying indoors to write.
Funny story about my cat…in USA Today – Happily Ever After http://happyeverafter.usatoday.com/2015/08/29/kitty-pilgrim-summer-of-fire-cat-domino/
Its always a bittersweet day to leave Menemsha Martha’s Vineyard. But September is almost here, and there are things to do in New York. On to the next adventure.
The last few days of summer are always the sweetest. The eye looks for beauty everywhere, trying to capture and retain it for the bleak months ahead.
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.
The view can be both distracting and inspiring. Most of my novels are written on some kind of boat. Fewer phone calls to interrupt.
