No, much as I love mysteries, I haven't solved the mystery of the Sphinx. But I am hoping to set my next cruise mystery in Egypt.   Thanks to Photo shop I am at the King Tut exhibit in Times Square New York. (Life it seems is one long research project.)  I am going to Alexandria, Egypt with Bruce Coville  to visit Carrie Danziger, Paula Danziger's niece in January.  Carrie is teaching at the American school there.

And the boy is not sleeping in the hammock.  He and his brother and I just finished a mystery in which mummies took over their beach house...and they invited him into the hammock to pretend he was a mummy.  

So even in the summer, there's time for imagination -- but what there doesn't seem to be time for is to actually write.  But that's what summers are for -- to recharge and to come up with ideas.  Let me know if you've had any adventures over the summer that could turn into a good mystery...

Stay tuned....
