Harlequin author Cynthia Thomason contemplates a mystery series set in a campground
The successful fiction writer says she has taken ideas for her stories from her travels. "Now that I have the trailer, I plan to explore even more."
Cindy and her husband, Walter, live in central Flordia and purchased a used 24-foot Fleetwood Pegasus this past spring. "I love it," she says. "We've been to the Keys, North Carolina for two weeks, Naples, and Sebastian Inlet in Florida."
She adds that they have had no problems with the RV, "but plenty of problems with the mosquitoes. I would travel every weekend, but that mpg thing holds us back." Also Sparky, their rescued terrier, "is not too crazy about the trailer. He poked out the screen door the first trip."
The author is currently working on a series of novels for Harlequin set in south Georgia. The first, 'His Most Important Win,' comes out Jan. 24, 2012. The second book is nearly finished.
"The third will be about a native American heroine who inherits land in Georgia from her grandmother," says Cindy. "She wants to keep the land as it was for her ancestors. The hero wants to develop it into a camping resort facility. Should create some sparks between them."
The RVer is also contemplating a mystery series set in a campground. "That's a great way to add a mix of interesting characters in with the regulars who run the campground," says Cindy. "It would be a cozy series--no blood and guts and a lot of humor."
