N is for New Orleans - A to Z Challenge

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities and the setting of my first book. My husband and I had a chance to visit again last year, and I took tons of pics as research and settings for the sequel. Here are a few of my favorites:

Night life in the French Quarter - Rachel's favorite haunt
One of the city's many voodoo shops - Viola would love it here
Cemetery where Rachel hunts ghosts
Private yard and hot tub in the French Quarter -
it gets even hotter when Rachel shows up without a suit!

How do you do book research?


  1. Now that's a fun way to do research, Jennifer! :)

    If I'm researching something in particular, I might attend a lecture, or read a book on the subject.

    But I like your way better! I think I'll set my next plot in Italy. :D

  2. Very cool.

    When I was working on my big project set in London, I had to rely on the internet and talking to people and reading lots and lots of maps.

    I am going to do some research now on your books. I like what I have seen so far!

    I am trying to read all the A to Z blogs, but coming back to the ones I really like.
    Looking forward to seeing what you do all month!

  3. I LOVE New Orleans! Such a fun, lively, and romantic place. My husband will not visit though. They think it's too violent. How sad.

    My books are set in the 2 cities of my residence, San Francisco and Seattle. Don't have to do much research on places I know so well.

    I'm a new follower via the A to Z. Nice to meet you, Jennifer!
