What's the story behind your latest book?
Drawing on the Past is the third book in the Perri Seamore series. Perri is a travel RN, so she works in various locations. In this book, her hospital contract is abruptly ended and she takes a last minute, fill-in job as a home health nurse in Southern Illinois. Her family originally hailed from that area, but before she can get started on her own genealogical research, she winds up in a snarl of a mystery surrounding a historic house and the double murder of its owners.

Describe your desk
I futilely try to keep my work area mostly uncluttered, but that never works out for me. It is a mixture of notes, coffee cups, pens/pencils, dictionaries, assorted paperwork, genealogy newsletters, an incense burner, multitudinous scraps of paper with vitally important (to me) information on them, and various CD cases, depending on what I'm listening to at the time.
