Here again, from Publisher’s Weekly for The BookLife Prize: Sheldon’s Characters are intricately developed and well constructed. They are believable and vivid. The secondary characters are solid in their portrayal as well.
The process planning and writing this book has been an education for me. I was in Michigan at the time, far from the action in San Francisco, but the tendrils of that phenomenon spread everywhere. I remember going to an outdoor concert back then where so many people were smoking pot that you could get high just breathing the air! Since I moved to California, just across the bridge from San Francisco I’ve been fascinated by that special time in 1967. I’ve talked to people who were around at that time, watched films and read books about that era. It seemed the perfect setting for my third in the Gwen Harris Mystery Series. It’s coming out very soon–watch for it!
