One of my readers, Laura Holmes, made a trip to the Island recently, and made a point of searching out the locations in the books. She was kind enough to send me some of the photos.
She had ice cream at the Albatross;
She lay on the rocks at School House Beach;
and she sought out my friend, Captain Bill, who was one of my best resources for information while I was researching.
Captain Bill is mentioned in both books, but would only be noticed by those of you who read authors’ notes and acknowledgments. (Confession: I generally do not.) I missed him at my recent book signing. He was working that day, and apparently got to the book shop just after I had left.
He’s one of my favorite people.
