Reading, Writing, and Recipes

I’m currently reading Marie-Helene Bertino’s Parakeet. It the darkly funny story of a woman whose dead grandmother speaks to her through an unruly parakeet. I love characters with strong, quirky voices. For me, Parakeet is more than a great read; it’s a writing workshop.

I’m rewriting a lighter mystery featuring Lucy Howard, a truth-loving, broken-hearted insurance investigator. Her cross-dressing, narcolpectic Uncle Buddy says he may have murdered someone, her ex wants her back, and someone is stalking her.

In The Sometime Sisiter, Grace has shrimp ceviche at a beachside restaurant before she meets her sister’s mysterious lover. Fresh ingredients are essential in this Ecuarorian recipe.
