The World of Melisende Dulac
Crossroad takes place in Barlow County, Oregon. Though fictional, the county is inspired by the landscape and history of central Oregon, even down to taking its name from Sam Barlow, an Oregon Trail pioneer.
Some of the information on these pages can only be inferred from Crossroad. Some appears in the short story "Hey Nineteen," which takes place about six months before the events of Crossroad. Beyond that, there are additional works-in-progress, including two novellas and a short story which will appear at a future date still to be determined.
To commemorate the occasion, over at the Poisoned Pen Press blog, I write about the origins of Joey Getchie, reluctant hero of Property of the State, and even touch on my own, er, criminal past. Check it out.
Revisions are when you get to
get to move the darts onto the bullseye while no one is looking.
