Christine's real life living and sailing aboard her 33-foot sailboat often sounds like something straight out of an adventure story—and, in fact, it's where she frequently gets inspiration for her exciting novels, including Dragon's Triangle, a nautical thriller set in the South China Sea. Filled with pirates, naval history, and a blowgun-toting, tattooed assassin from Borneo, Dragon's Triangle is an exotic tale about treasure hunting on tropical islands.
Maggie Riley is settling into her new life in Thailand, having left behind her past and the disappearance of Cole Thatcher: a maritime archeologist, conspiracy nut, and the love of her life. A former Marine, Maggie is enjoying solitude aboard her 40-foot sailboat, but before long, she gets pulled into a net of intrigue that reunites her with Thatcher.
I imagine Maggie sharing a few qualities with her author: a profound desire to explore, intrepid curiosity, and a free and open spirit that spurs her on from one port to the next. Last I checked, Christine was headed to the island republic of Malta to start research for her next book, set in the Mediterranean Sea. I expect that wherever she anchors next, her adventures will soon make their way into her pages.
