If you have had a chance to read my 9th book

"Basil and the Sleepy Little Town"

I promised some fun extra tidbits about my books

The little elf in

"Joey's Christmas Wish"

is actually an inheritance from my grandmother, to my mom, and then to me...The vintage ornaments are from my husbands grandmother

In Basil and the Secret of the Wisteria Inn

 

The Mystery writers name is an anagram.

 

I keep this little notebook in my desk to notate all sorts of odd tidbits for my books, it is fill with notations of French, German and Latin words, tarot card meanings, and odd dates and information.

Many of them I saw while I was with my urban hiking group.

Shout out to Des,Tat,Moni for many fun walks!

Basil , Sylvia and Maurice have a long history together..

My Dear Friend Alex and I would act as messengers for our alter egos Basil and Sylvia the collection of letters I have held on to for 30 years is below. Maurice was added on to help Basil, while Rupert (who was behind the scenes) helped Sylvia.

Much love to Alex for letting me take Sylvia on all sorts of adventures
