  1. Thanks for the interview, Marcia and Diana! You’re right, Diana, I enjoyed the excerpt and look forward to reading more of Marcia’s work. I also enjoyed visiting her website!

  2. I always enjoy hearing about what Marcia is doing and how she gets her ideas. It’s fascinating. I’ll have to visit her website soon. thanks.

  3. Great interview. I was lucky enough to be in Marcia’s critique group while she wrote the historical Annapolis mystery. It’s a great book. Now that I’ve moved away, I feel deprived to have missed out on manuscript chapters of DARK PASSAGE!

    1. Well, lucky you to have been there for at least some time (can you tell I’m green with envy? Grin) , but I can imagine you must be in critique group withdrawal, Sasscer. See what happens when you move away from all the folk who love you? I can say that since I’m one of them. LOL. Hope you’re enjoying your new home and thanks for visiting today. Please come back, soon!

  4. Marcia, as always, you did a beautiful job! Can’t wait to read your next book!

  5. YOu both are wonderful! ANd my favorite mystery “character”–is Marcia Talley! Because she’s quite a character, right? xoo

  6. Dahling! I’m getting on the Dark Passage list today. How I love your books! You can’t write them fast enough!

  7. My favorite mystery character is Laurie King’s Mary Russell, though I have enjoyed your books for a long time.. As historical characters go, I would have to say Rosalind Franklin is my heroine.

    1. Oh, if you love Laurie King, Rachel, please check back. She will be my video guest at a date soon to be scheduled. I agree that I love a book that starts with heroine tripping over Sherlock Holmes quite literally. LOL.
