A newsletter editor from my own alma mata, the University of Connecticut, talks about visiting The Breakers and "meeting" Emma.  "...Here I am, and here is Emma at the Breakers, reminding me that I hold an incomprehensible amount of power in my own hands.” Read this very special post!  Where Fiction Meets Life: ARTICLE

9/5/2014         MURDER AT THE BREAKERS made the USA Today Bestseller list at #126

Never in my life would I have expected this to happen, but on August 30, 2014, my author ranking at Amazon was higher than J.K. Rowlings!
