Southeast Asia has about a gazillion beautiful flowers (OK, that's an exaggeration--but not by much). In this ThaHoliday.com article I profile a few of these blooms that have cultural significance in the region.
Today I'm thrilled to announce that I've been invited to blog regularly for The Novel Adventurers, a group of novelists who love to travel--especially on the page. The writers have a world's worth of experience between them, including experts on Italy, Iran, South America and the Indian diaspora (sorry if I missed anyone!). I learn something fascinating about a distant land every time I check out the blog, and I'm flattered to be included as a blogger for this group. I'll be writing there roughly every other Wednesday.
My first blog as one of the regulars is out today. This week's topic is reviews, and I've shared one of my favorite detective series--the Sonchai Jitpleecheep books by John Burdett.
Please go on over and take a look! http://noveladventurers.blogspot.com/2012/04/troubles-brewing-in-bangkok.html
