NC Publisher Writes New Travel Mystery
Boone resident and CEO of Canterbury House Publishing, Wendy Dingwall, launches her debut novel, the first in a series, Hera’s Revenge: An Yvonne Suarez Travel Mystery.
The public is invited to meet Ms. Dingwall at Barnes & Noble, 3 South Tunnel Road, May 5th from 5-7pm.
Christy Tillery French, reviewer for Midwest Book Reviews, and author of the Body Guard series, says, “The premise for this mystery is a refreshing addition to the mystery genre. The author excels at interweaving interesting historical and mythological data into the plot. This, along with her visual descriptive, leaves the reader feeling as if s/he is actually touring the Greek Isles along with the group. …Yvonne Suarez is an intriguing character… The mystery is one readers will be challenged to solve, filled with twists and turns and plenty of red herrings.”
In Hera’s Revenge, when an airport employee turns up dead in baggage claim upon their arrival in Athens, the Pinkerton Travel group gets off to a rocky start. Yvonne’s corporate client, David Ludlow, needs a vacation from his stressful job, and this itinerary in the land of mythology, Greek philosophers and early democrats is just the ticket to a leisurely escape, until grumpy passengers, missing museum art, and deathly accidents plague their journey. A reluctant sleuth, Yvonne, pulls out all the stops to keep her clients safe and her tour on track.
Wendy Dingwall operated her own travel company in South Florida for over 12 years. In 2001 she moved to the mountains of Northwest, North Carolina and after phasing out her travel business, began working for a local book publisher, marketing authors and their books. In July 2009 she opened her own publishing company and by fall of 2011 will have published 15 books by various notable southern authors.
Shortly after arriving in the mountains and inspired by the writing community there, Dingwall started writing her first mystery, fulfilling a lifelong dream. She is an active member of High Country Writers and co-founder of a small writing critique group. She continues to work on the second and third novels in her mystery series featuring amateur sleuth, Yvonne Suarez.
Currently, she resides on a 50 acre farm near Boone, NC with her husband, retired Florida attorney Walter Dingwall, their 2 Maltese dogs, and a cat, while enjoying the variety of seasons offered by the Blue Ridge Mountains.
