Where Treasure Hides Book Tour

Traveling Around the Internet

where-treasure-hides-682x1024-new-coverThe print edition of Where Treasure Hides is now available!

Which means I’m hopping around the blogosphere, sharing my fascination with World War II history, and answering questions about my novel, writing, and life in general.

Here are a few more stops:

Wednesday Writers Welcomes Johnnie Alexander

Catherine Castle invited me to talk about, among other things, why I write in more than one genre, my writing space, and a few of my favorite books. She shares a photo I sent her of Rugby, my papillon, and the raccoon he sent scurrying up a tree.

The post also includes an excerpt from Treasure–a short scene of Alison and Ian eating cherry scones at Minivers, a cozy British tea shoppe near Waterloo Station in London.

“A Gentle Whisper”

This tribute to my dad appears on Bonnie Leon’s blog as part of her Wednesday book giveaway feature.

In Marian P. Merritt’s interview, I reveal what character I’d like to be from any book. Anyone want to take a guess before hopping over to see the answer?

    • Interesting guess, Bonnie. I hope I would be as courageous as Alison in a similar situation. However, the character I chose wasn’t one of my creation. Since that means there are a gazillion possibilities, I’ll give a hint: Think classic fantasy.

        • Marian’s question was what character I’d like to be from any book so I said I’d like to be part of a specific group that inhabits a classic fantasy novel.

          Thanks what you said about the images and symbolic allusions in Where Treasure Hides. One of the fun things about writing is discovering how unplanned themes, images, and allusions appear in the story. We should chat more about this.

          • It is absolutely fascinating how that happens. I became more aware of this after I read Vladimir Nabokov’s “Lectures on Literature.” I so wished I had been able to attend while he was still living.

            Marian’s question is really interesting. I am not sure how I would answer her for myself. Maybe Melanie in “Gone with the Wind.” Definitely not Scarlet O’Hara. I’ve read where some novelists put Melanie down as boring. That’s not how I found her. We can learn so much from her about life.
