From the Author
When I set out to write SOUTHERN CROSS, I had a loose idea of what I wanted: I knew it would take place in Kentucky; I knew Diggs' past would figure significantly into unfolding events; and I knew that key elements of the conspiracy involving Erin's father would come to light. Beyond that, however, the entire novel was a mystery to me. I'm thrilled with what ultimately landed on the page, as I think it provides compelling background for readers looking for additional insight into the Diggs and Solomon dynamic, gives some tantalizing new information about the conspiracy, and -- most surprisingly for me -- shows a whole new side of Erin, as she struggles to come to terms with the violence she's encountered in the previous novels.
I love watching these characters as they evolve, and their relationships deepen and change over time. I hope readers will enjoy this latest installment of the Erin Solomon mysteries half as much as I've enjoyed writing it!
All the best,
