When I got the call from my hometown newspaper, The Annapolis Capital, I was jumping up and down. After months of hoping my they would cover my novel, BENEATH THE MIMOSA TREE, I got a call from the lovely Theresa (Teri) Winslow. We met in Severna Park at The Breakfast Shoppe, and four days later, the article appeared on the front page of the Lifestyle section and on the Book Worm blog.
Having the Annapolis Capital (click here to link to the original story) cover it was truly a thrill. When I decided to set my novel in my picturesque hometown, the one thing I hoped for was some press on it as it is chock full of all things Annapolis. There is a certain romanticism to the city, especially for those of us who have grown up there.
In fact, one of the most lovely compliments I’ve received about the book was that I depicted the city of Annapolis like a Van Gogh painting. It is one compliment I plan on holding onto for quite some time.
I love Annapolis. I always will.
