A plug from Southwest Airlines' Spirit Magazine!

I just found out that this month's issue of Spirit Magazine, Southwest Airlines' in-flight magazine, has an article on "Put the Mystery into your Travel," about mystery novels set in real locations that serve as entertaining destination guides to those locales. My book, A REAL BASKET CASE, is listed for Colorado Springs, Colorado. To read the article online, go to: http://www.spiritmag.com/2007_09/features/ft3.php , then click on "Click here to discover even more mystery travel locations and books" to see the full list of books, including my debut mystery.

The editors were even so kind as to include links to authors' websites, including mine. I do have scenes in the book in the Garden of the Gods park and some of my favorite local restaurants, and an important event occurs at the 5-star Broadmoor Hotel. However, some of the locations in the book, where bad stuff happens, were made up or based on an amalgamation of real locations, so don't go looking in Colorado Springs for Graham's Gym or the auto shop or apartment complex mentioned in the book. They don't exist! What fun. I'm so thrilled that Southwest Airlines gave a nod to A REAL BASKET CASE!
