Hot Fun in the Summertime!

It's June - and we're having an official Heat Wave on Cape Cod!

Hot, hazy, and humid... just like when I was growing up on the Jersey Shore. The seaweed is piling up on my beach, though, with the wind coming off the ocean. Feels (and smells) like August, suddenly.

The book I'm currently working on is set on Cape Cod, actually right off the coast and mostly under the water - mermaids and such, for middle readers to young adult. I have been perusing the young adult section, and there are plenty of vampires and wizards but no mermaids.


I've been working on it for a year now, though, and need to finish before someone else beats me to it. Just like I have my Cape Cod romance novel - and now all the chatter on the NE-RWA site is about Cape settings.... and Kristin Higgans (who I love her books, BTW) was nominated for a RITA. For her book set on Cape Cod.

At the moment, though, my Cape Cod dream home is hot, humid, and smells of low tide.

Not the most romantic of settings!
