CROSSROADS, A Camino Tale is an easy-to-read, travel adventure, with a touch of suspense. As an unpublished manuscript it was the winner (in that category) at the Great Southwestern Book Festival a few months ago.

Mountain ranges, Ocean Breezes, And Revenge Seven women come together to journey across Spain. Unsuspected, one member arrives with hatred in her heart and revenge is her only mission. Lives are threatened, emotions peaked, and miracles abound on this physically demanding hike over 550 miles of Spain’s most beautiful countryside. This story will appeal to ages 16 to 70 who enjoy stories of determination, travel, history, and suspense.

Characters from a previous book mature in this book. The title of that book is THE FINAL ACT, From Woodstock to Broadway. It too is a short read. Genre – suspense. Setting Broadway. Description: Bright Lights, Curtain Calls, Cruel and Unsuspected Murder. The life of an assistant producer just one step from bringing her Native American production to Broadway finds forces beyond her control put her dream in jeopardy. There have been several books written on the Camino. Most are travel logs or have been written from one individual viewpoint. By traveling the Camino with seven imaginary characters the story is able to unfold from several different perspectives.
