Since Mar 2011

Fort Myers Beach, Florida

I am a thriller and mystery novelist who lives in Fort Myers Beach and uses travel to research settings for my stories to make sure they are as atmospheric as possible. Since I'm working on a series about World War 1 and World War 2, I took the Queen Mary 2 across the Atlantic to Germany, Austria, and England, and back. Since one of the novels starts with the sinking of the Lusitania, I thought that the shipboard experience was important. We rented a car and drove around Germany and Austria. My English reviews come from a shore excursion at Southampton. The USA reviews result from our drive back and forth to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. But I have taken other trips such as a spring trip to San Diego for a scene in one of my novels. Recently we also traveled to Santa Fe for the same reason. Frequently I travel with my dog and cat, a Labrador Retriever named Rommel and a ruddy Abyssinian named Putlitz. If you read my reviews you will hear about all sorts of pet-friendly places.
