New Orleans Two Years After Katrina

Visiting the city where I went to law school and where I set the first novel in the Jonathan Brooks series.

NEW ORLEANS, Lousiana (Nov. 3, 2007) -- I'd longed to come back after Katrina struck this city, a place filled with memories from law school and the hometown of the main fictional character, Jonathan Brooks, for the novels Tranquility Denied (2006) and the sequel, The Serpent's Game (announced for 2009). My visit also coincided with my 10-year Loyola law school reunion.

I visited the Ninth Ward, the most severely hit area of the city. The pictures speak for themselves...

I also visited other sites for the second thriller in the Jonathan Brooks series. These included various sites around town, including a cemetery.
