Returning to the Blue Sea

At this cold time of year in Canada, one can’t help but daydream of warm, sunny places, and this winter I found myself longing to return to Casa del Mar Azul on the Sea of Cortez, the fictional location of my novel, House of the Blue Sea.

And … drum roll, please …

I’m excited to announce the upcoming release of a prequel to House of the Blue Sea! It’s Paul’s story, and he, in case you don’t recall, is the owner of Casa del Mar Azul, the guy who was once an actor and is an old friend of Mark Jeffery’s. So, if you’ve wondered how a British actor ended up as a Mexican hotelier (as I did) this novella will answer the question. And also take a peek into Sandra’s very first trip to Baja.

If you’d like to receive a free digital copy of this novella, sign up for my eNews and be one of the first to read it.

The cover and title are still in progress, but here is a look at what I’m working on.

Two-Author Reading

On April 29, I’ll be sharing the podium with Turner Valley author, Holly Quan, who recently launched her novel, The Sow’s Ear Cafe. I’ll be reading from House of the Blue Sea, Holly will read from her book, there’ll be snacks and refreshments, and we’ll be surrounded by books! Come join us at Shelf Life Books in downtown Calgary on Sunday, April 29 from 2-4, and support two local authors!
