Welcome to the parlor! Please come in and make yourself comfortable. Have a cup of tea and say hello.

You’ll see some archives at the bottom of this page. Archives are a bit fussy to maintain, so I won’t be doing that any more. I’ll leave up the old pages, but from now on the parlor chat will remain on this page. Comments get shut off automatically now and then, to discourage spammers. I’ll refresh this as needed, so please say hello here and I’ll be along soon to respond. If you’re not able to post here, please drop a note on the contact page.

  1. Hi.
    I’m enjoying a cup of Ginger Peach from The Republic of Tea.
    Stay safe and healthy.

    I would love to see a room plan for each floor of the wonderful sounding house. So many alcoves and rooms.

      I believe all the ebooks of the novels now have maps. The print editions starting with book 5 (A Masquerade of Muertos) also have maps. No maps in the Intermezzi.

    Hello Patrice. I am taking you in advance for answering this letter. Just so you know , as of right now, I have bread every book except an interlude, which has been ordered. I have fallen in love with each character as you make them come alive for me. If you could just answer my only question, when will the next book in the Tearoom be out? I can hardly wait. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I am truly grateful.

      As soon as I know, you’ll know. Work progresses on book 8, but until the manuscript is complete, we won’t have a publication date.
