Writing is my life...​well, maybe not completely...but I do love what I do, and I think that makes all the difference!After a long career in advertising, marketing, graphic design & public relations--the real world of "Man Men", I joined the U.S. Peace Corps. As a volunteer assigned to rural community development work in the South American country of Suriname (formerly Dutch Guiana), I lived for a year in an indigenous Amerindian village on the northeast corner of the Amazon basin. This experience inspired my first novel, the adventure/romance, "Hard Amazon Rain."It was also In Suriname where I learned the history of Elisabeth Samson, the first black woman in the 18th century Dutch plantation colony to get legal permission from the government to marry white, inspiring me to write my second novel, "Elisabeth Samson, Forbidden Bride."And I was off and writing... completing my Las Vegas-based murder mystery, "Magicide", two memoirs, a book on art journaling (one of my other passions) and most recently a non-fiction book for authors, "Power Editing For Fiction Writers."Right now I'm finishing my new mystery, about six million dollars hidden in a Las Vegas hotel destined for destruction. "IMPLOSION" will debut September 2015.In 2012 I moved from the United States to Cuenca, Ecuador, way up in the Andes. From here I also publish www.adventuress-travel-magazine.com, for "women over 50 doing fun things." I still love to travel and look forward to returning to Vegas and Seattle periodically to visit friends and shop at Costco and Trader Joe's.Additional current works-in-progress include two online video courses. It's a new stretch for me to learn all the technology to do this professionally. The course material itself I've taught before, but only in classroom settings.If you'd like to contact me, comment, or ask writing questions, e-mail me any time at info@carolynvhamilton.com or follow my blog at carolynvhamilton.wordpress.com!

There are many shady characters, including the magician's own son.This was a quick and easy read, and kept it entertaining. It gives us a look behind Las Vegas magician life, and was quite goo...
