There's a new interview with me up at http://mayhemandmagic2.blogspot.com/ Enjoy!
The Bay at Midnight just came out in the UK. I love the cover they gave it, even though it doesn’t quite fit the book. The youngest child in Bay is Julie, who’s 12, and this little girl looks younger, but I think the innocence portrayed on the cover does fit the story. Julie is so young and naive, and it’s that naivete that leads to the tragedy of her sister’s murder. Although all of my books have an element of mystery, The Bay at Midnight is a bona fide who-dunnit in addition to a family drama. (The US cover is on the right).
I’ve been interviewed by some of the media in the UK about this book and I love thinking about the story again. Since the setting for Bay is the summer bungalow of my childhood, it’s fun getting to talk about it one more time.
This is my second novel to be published in the UK. The first was The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes under the title The Lost Daughter. I heard from so many readers who loved that book, and I hope they find The Bay at Midnight equally as intriguing. I hope, too, that it will be under a bunch of Christmas trees in England this year!
