A friend doing research in the downtown Calgary Public Library Local History Room spotted Ten Days in Summer on the New Books shelf. Cool.

Will and I shared a super Margarita at a popular cafe in the Zona Romantica, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend. I got the exciting news that my short story, Zona Romantica, was selected for the Bouchercon 2017 anthology, Passport to Murder.
The anthology will be published in October, and will be available for pre-order this summer.

When author Christina Hamlett offered me an interview on her blog, You Read it Here First, I leaped at the chance. The interview turned out to be more involved than I expected. It took me a fair bit of time to craft these answers. I hope you enjoy them.
What do you do when you're not writing?
What would surprise people about you?
What was on your teenage nightstand?

Ten days in Summer is number one on today’s Calgary Herald Bestsellers List – Fiction. Thanks, Owl’s Nest Bookstore, for once again hosting a terrific book launch.

My signing tomorrow at Chapters Shawnessy has been changed to Saturday, April 22nd, due to the store not having copies of Ten Days in Summer. So I’m in for a more relaxing Saturday this weekend. I’ll have to get out and enjoy our mild temperatures. Not as mild as this day in Spain, but still pleasant for Calgary in March. Happy spring.

Another friend, Ruth Daly, has posted a photo-blog of my recent book launch for Ten Days in Summer. Ruth was my ‘official launch photographer.’ I’m lucky to have such friends.

Today, Susan Toy features Ten Days in Summer in her blog Reading Recommendations. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for a picture of me dressed goofily, for reasons I explain.
