Prince George used to have very few thunderstorms. Key words are “used to”. I don’t know if it’s global warming or what, but this summer we’ve been plagued by all sorts of storms: hailstorms, electric storms, and thunderstorms. Last week we’ve got a really bad one that lasted an entire night. It spooked my dogs, kept us awake and fried a bunch of stuff in our home. My computer was one of the things that were damaged. Fortunately, I managed to salvage all my data (big sigh of relief), and I’m finally backed at work. It was a close call though—got me freaked for a bit. I’m just hoping there won’t be another one like that. Fingers crossed.
I’m a mystery, science fiction and fantasy writer. I grew up in Shippagan, New Brunswick, but now lives in Prince George, British Columbia with my husband and two Scottish terriers. For those who are wondering how to pronounce my name, the H in Nathalie is silent, and Mallet is pronounced like ballet, the dance, but with an M.
The Princes of the Golden Cage is the first installment in the Prince Amir Mystery series. The third book in the series, Death in the Traveling City, is now available.
