SCOTT DRAYCO SERIES
Although the settings for my Scott Drayco series are largely fictitious sites on the Eastern Shore of Virginia (e.g., Cape Unity and Prince of Wales County), many real towns and landmarks are referenced in the books. Here are some photos with scenes from this largely undiscovered gem of the Mid-Atlantic.
Drayco also lives and works in Washington D.C., from his office and townhome near Capitol Hill.
BEVERLY LABORDE & ADAM DUTTON SERIES (Coming in 2015)
The Beverly Labordge and Adam Dutton series is set in Vermont in the fictitious town of Ironwood Junction. Vermont is often called "God's Country," and it doesn't much imagination to see why, as in these scenic photos from the Green Mountain State.
Scott Drayco is a former classical concert pianist, so music is very much at the center of his life. Since he also has chromesthesia—a type of synesthesia where he experiences sounds as having colors, shapes, and textures—he experiences the world as a multi-sensory orchestra.
