The doors of France

The doors of France

I’ve always been intrigued by doors–both metaphorically and physically. As I walked around France, researching the Cousins of the Dove series that Mindy Starns Clark and I are working on, I took lots of photos of doors. I won’t share all of them here, lol. Just a few from Lyon and Le Chambon-sur-Lignon. I’ll post a more in the weeks to come too, I’m sure, including from Paris. (Although I promise not to post all of them!)

Another new series in the works

Another new series in the works

I’m happy to announce that Mindy Starns Clark and I are working on a new series, Cousins of the Dove. It’s a time-slip story with both historical threads and contemporary ones. The first novel starts out in France in 1685, and explores the dilemma of the Huguenots, many who fled the country and became the first réfugiés. I’m super excited about this project!

The perfect setting

As an author, I’m always on the look out for the perfect setting. When I go on research trips I take hundreds of photos–always looking for what I see in my mind. It doesn’t happen very often that I find it, but I did over the last weekend in May while we were in Lancaster County.
