Was it murder--or something serious?

Scotland in 2015

My writing buddy Lisa B. and I will be in Scotland around this time next year.

We’re taking an escorted vacation with my old pals the Men of Worth. This will be a little odd -- my writing world colliding with my music world. But I think it will ultimately be inspiring on both fronts.

So. Inverness and Orkney.

The description on the website fills me with delight: A stay on Orkney as well as visits to Culloden, Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle and the Jacobite Cruise.

I. Can’t. Wait.

Lisa toured Scotland with a friend when she got out of college, and I’ve never been (which is kind of shocking, really), so this is going to be an adventure for both of us. And if I can convince the girls to go too…? We could have a Browne Sister thing as well as a writing research thing. 


  1. Inverness is beautiful, and has a lovely theatre, and just along the coast is Cawdor Castle, one of my favourite places on earth. The whole area is wonderful.

    1. I am so thrilled. The sisters are in. :-D The trip of a lifetime.

    2. Assuming we are not all four of us arrested, in which case, I will be ringing you up, Jan. BRING BAIL MONEY!!!! ;-D
