Leaving on a jet plane

on May 2, 2018

I’m packing my bikini and putting the blog on hiatus for just a bit because we’re heading to Greece today! It’s the 30th anniversary of our first date next week and we both have milestone birthdays this year, so we’re heading to the Aegean to celebrate. The blog will resume on May 16–just in time…

All things Asheville

on April 4, 2018

So last month I was lucky enough to head down to Asheville for an annual writers’ retreat I do with a group of friends. It was my fourth trip to Asheville, and if you haven’t been, GO. It’s artsy and hip and full of fun things to do. You can hike or bike or kayak–all…

Not quite a spoonful of sugar, but almost as good…

on February 14, 2018

So lately I’ve been doing a heap of traveling–yay!–and schlepping my bag–boo. For the book tour, there was no way around using a proper, albeit small, suitcase. There was a 70-degree temperature fluctuation from Phoenix to Nashville, and I needed lots of layers and a parka in order to stay comfortable. I did my level…

I love LA!

on March 17, 2017

I’m back home again and settling in after a splendid time in Los Angeles. It was the first time I’ve been to the city itself–I’ve been to Anaheim and northern California but never LA proper–and I loved it! Well, except for traffic because that is forty varieties of nuts, but I will also tell you…

The book tour is finished and A PERILOUS UNDERTAKING has been properly launched! Heaps of thanks to all of you who turned out, bought books, sold books, asked questions, and were just generally awesome people. (If you want signed books, there are still copies at The Poisoned Pen, Murder by the Book, Fox Tale, and…

Catch up with Anna and get all the up-to-date info at her site. Off the Beaten Path in Rathfarnham. Ireland with Anna Lee Huber I chose Rathfarnham, Ireland as…

Leaving on a jet plane…or not.

on April 12, 2016

Reposting this piece on travel/research because this came up at an appearance I just did, and this is a MUCH more involved response than the one I was able to give. One of the questions I get a fair amount is whether or not it’s necessary to travel to a setting in order to write…

Regular blogging will resume in October, but please drop by the blog every Tuesday and Thursday in September for posts from the archive. In the meantime, hope to see you on tour!
