2008 ACFW Conference pictures

September 30, 2008

I just got back from the 2008 ACFW conference in Minneapolis, where I got to hang out with a few of my Summerside Sisters! Here are a couple of the pictures I took. Hopefully, next year, we’ll all be there, and we can get a group photo.

Gorgeous Treasure Island

July 17, 2008

I spent a couple of hours driving around Treasure Island, where my book is set. As you’ll see in these pictures, this is a gorgeous town with a nice blend of old and new Florida. Here are a few pictures that capture the essence of this delightful vacation paradise.

Treasure on the beach

July 11, 2008

I’m excited to be included in the Summerside Press lineup! What an honor to be among some of my favorite authors!

My book is set in Treasure Island, Florida, a small beach community on the West Coast of Florida. As soon as I heard this book was being contracted, I headed to Treasure Island and snapped a bunch of pictures. I’ll pick out a few of my favorites and post them here. Research will be so much fun! If anyone is up to hanging out at the beach all day—looking for treasure, of course—with seafood breaks every few hours, come on down!
