The gift from the Princess

Diamond Earrings
A Princely gift!

This is exactly what I had envisioned for the gift the Princess presses into Portia’s hands at the end of Principessa.

..by the time you read this…

Plane taking off in the sunset
Leaving’ on a jet plane!

dun dun duuuuuuun!

That title sounds way more ominous than ‘Leaving’ on a jet plane’ so forgive me (I’m a writer), but by the time you read this, I will be leaving on a jet plane.

To where you ask, kind readers? Why to do some research for the latest case book: Principessa.

Ok, not entirely true, but I had this trip to Rome booked back in January to meet up with my good friend Quade for a week of food, fun, and catching up. As I was planning the trip, I started writing casebook 7, and lo and behold, Portia Adams has found herself travelling to Italy! What a happy coincidence. Maybe someday if I ever make a few bucks off this venture, I can claim the trip as research?

We’ll see.

Regardless, it is off to Rome I go, and hopefully I will come back with some great stories to share and some beautiful scenes committed to paper!

CaseBook Titles

bunch of books on their sides
a series in order!

Ok, don’t laugh, but as I write casebook 7 of the Portia Adams Adventures, I am forgetting the order. How is that possible you ask? Sigh, editing, re-editing, transcribing, re-reading, and re-ordering… its bound to make a girl confused.
So here is an ordered list of the completed casebooks in the series:

1. Jewel of the Thames
2. A case of darkness
3. Unfound
4. Thrice Burned
5. Box 850
6. Truth be told (title picked by the faithful readers of this blog!)
7. Principessa (tentative)
8. Settling the Score (title picked by the faithful readers of this blog!)
