     Thank you for having me on your blog today. When I began working on my YA fantasy/suspense I knew the setting would be in New Orleans, LA as I had spent some time there and found it to be an incredible place. There are many layers to New Orleans with much depth.

     While I was in New Orleans I took a walking tour of the Garden District, it was a lovely tour and along the way I spoke to the other tourist. Since this was a ghost tour we talked about all the scary stories we had heard in town regarding the tour.

     As we walked up and down the fabulously beautiful streets with perfectly manicured lawns and gardens I knew without a doubt that I would love to visit this place again and preferably spend more time there. Each house that we came to had its own gothic story, a tale of injustice or an unhappy tale. These houses all had an eerie story attached to them, beautiful on the outside but with hidden secrets. Some of these houses seemed oblivious of their sinter histories while others as you can see… well, you decide.

     When I decided to write Murder on Mars, I knew I had to include the Garden District. It wasn’t until I began to work on my story that I knew just how I would include it.
