UNDERTOW Sets A Dangerous Course Into Unchartered Waters Hi, I’m delighted to introduce my brand new Cutter Cay series, launching, with a splash, (sorry couldn’t help myself) with Zane “Casanova of the Caribbean” Cutter in UNDERTOW. I fell in love with the youngest Cutter brother the moment I met him. For years Zane has been searching for a little known Dutch frigate blown off course centuries earlier. A ship filled with a wealth of emeralds and gold which he believes sank somewhere in the water’s near his home base in the Caribbean. Zane is smart enough to know that when he finds the Vrijheid, he doesn’t want anything, or anyone, distracting him.

Author Guest / December 28, 2010

As a result, most of my novels were set either in Southern California, where I was born and raised and currently live, or up in the Pacific Northwest, where I also lived for several years. My characters were a lot like me and/or the people around me, and their lifestyles and circumstances often paralleled my own to some degree. But somewhere along the line I had to ask myself, Is that all there is? Can I move beyond my own little corner of the world in my writing, even if I can’t actually do so physically? With the Internet at my fingertips, I decided I could. That’s how my Extreme Devotion series with New Hope Publishers came about. RED INK, the third book in the series, is set in China, and though I’ve never been there myself, my readers tell me the book reads as if I have. The same is true of NO GREATER LOVE, set in South Africa, and MORE THAN CONQUERORS, set in the San Diego/Tijuana area (been there!), but also San Juan Chamula…
