Tomorrow's Guest: Bailey Cates
Tomorrow, author Bailey Cates (AKA Cricket McRae) will be a guest on my blog. Bailey Cates believes magic is all around us if we only look for it. She studied philosophy, English and history and has held a variety of positions ranging from driver's license examiner to soap maker. She traveled the world as a localization program manager for Microsoft, but now sticks close to home where she writes two mystery series, tends to a dozen garden beds, bakes up a storm and plays the occasional round of golf.
Having apprenticed with a master herbalist for a year, Bailey's prone to concocting teas and tinctures for family and friends from the stash of herbs stored in the corner cabinet in her office. She owns a working spinning wheel and is on a first name basis with several alpacas and two sheep with questionable dispositions. The first book in her Magical Bakery Mystery series, Brownies and Broomsticks, was released on May 1st.
In her guest post tomorrow, Bailey talks about how she researched the setting for the series, Savannah, Georgia. After you read her post, feel free to ask her a question or leave a comment for her in the comments.
