Travel wish list and next week’s guest

On Tuesday, I mentioned some of the places I’ve been. Here are a few places I’d like to read about and then visit (or vice versa).

Chicago: Home to the V.I. Warshawski mysteries by Sarah Paretsky that I used to devour. Current home to Julie Ann Walker’s awesome Black Knights Inc. series. I’ve driven and flown through Chicago, but never really stopped for the full tour.

Alaska: I recently read Nerd Gone Wild By Vicki Lewis Thompson, but really, I just want to go to Alaska.

Australia and NZ: I don’t care if any books have ever been set in these countries—though I know plenty have—they’ve been on my list forever. Gorgeous scenery, interesting history and architecture, fabulous accents, and rugby players. Need I say more?

Peru: Several of fabulous romantic suspense author Cindy Gerard’s books are set here. And I’ve wanted to visit Macchu Picchu since I was ten.
