Something New — and Old

So, in addition to writing more in the Blue Ridge Library Mystery series — which has historical elements but is set in contemporary times — I have started developing a new series.  This time, it is a historical mystery series, set in the 1920s.

It is still set in a rural area of Virginia, but in the Shenandoah Valley, between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Alleghany Mountains. The closest city in the area where the story is set is Winchester, Virginia, although the two main characters once worked in Washington, D.C.

This series has not yet been picked up for publication, because I am just developing it. Stay tuned for more news as I have it.

In the meantime, here are some photos to give you a sense of the time and place:
