Sierra Inspiration


Many of my mystery novels -- from Riga Hayworth to the Witches of Doyle -- are set in the California Sierras. Lake Tahoe has gotten a bit too crowded lately, so I've been drifting further south, along Highway 4 for my Doyle series. What's so magical about the Sierras?

California Sierras

Near Ebbetts Pass on Highway 4.

Love the twists in this dead tree! Could a certain dark fairy be responsible?

Lake Alpine. Susan Witsend from At Wits' End goes here for some R&R with her friend Arsen.

Murphys California

Adorable Murphys, California. I based Doyle on this town.
