Spotlight: Mystery authors discover peacocks really do like shiny things

I was looking back through some of my Examiner.com articles, and thought you might enjoy this one. I keep stressing how important it is research things when writing about locations and professions you aren't totally familiar with. 

So, what did this city girl know about peacocks? Only that they screech, and although beautiful, they are very messy. I needed to know more about them for the third Silver Sisters Mystery, Vanishing Act in Vegas, and later found out that I REALLY did get it right. Read on and enjoy!

  1. This is one of the best posts that I’ve ever seen; you may include some more ideas in the same theme about Mystery Shopping Research. I’m still waiting for some interesting thoughts from your side in your next post.
