Edward Always Tells a Good Story

... but somehow, it will differ greatly from the truth.

From December 3 until Christmas, a different short story or excerpt by my historical fiction writer friends will be posted every day  
on Helen Hollick's blog:
The shared theme is DIAMONDS

On December 13, it's Edward's turn to charm the gullible Mrs. Joe Bunting. Snuggled into the folds of her short neck sits a strand of exquisite South Sea Pearls. While Edward compliments her on them, his appreciative eye immediately spies the large yellow diamond in the clasp. Something he will not comment on in case the woman might grow suspicious.

After their delightful lunch with several glasses of heady California Chardonnay, Betsy Bunting foots the bill for Edward to accompany her on her trip to Egypt. In a strictly platonic manner, of course.

  Read Edward's entire California Interludes
in this short volume

Once in Cairo, our wily Edward becomes the nemesis to my protagonists in the modern portion of the Legends of the Winged Scarab series (Books 2-5) where he is no longer quite so charming, to put it mildly.

A Tribute to Harriet Doerr

Invited to write about one of my favorite authors, I chose American writer Harriet Doerr; one of many I could have singled out for Helen Hollick's Discovering Diamonds blogspot.

Doerr's sparse yet descriptive style fascinates me as it is as captivating today as it was when she wrote about these Mexican adventures.

Here is my Tribute to Harriet Doerr:
