Thank you for hosting this stop on my Murder on Mars (A New Orleans Mystery) book tour!

Murder on Mars, a mystery suspense begins with sixteen year old Ava Lopez arriving in New Orleans after learning that a good friend of hers has disappeared. She begins to track him down by piecing together what he had been doing the last few days before he had gone missing, discovering a hidden world within the city.

I visited New Orleans one summer in August and found it to be a charming place. During the short time I was there I heard some of the most amazing music. I knew that when I began working on Murder on Mars I had to feature this and I worked on capturing the mood and feel of what I was lucky enough to hear while I was in town.

I wrote three characters into my story with the purpose of using them to convey what I had learned. Each of them had different backgrounds and stories of their own who came together to form their band. While I was in New Orleans I learned music was something to be learned and to be shared, music was life.
