Border Crossings

This past summer, my husband and I once again traveled to the USA for a few weeks. I love the mountains and the super-friendly people in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

Over the years we have gone across this longest undefended border in the world many times, and in many different locations.
Some of the border crossings are extremely busy with long lineups. The crossing from Detroit to Windsor is always busy. The crossings that border some of the western provinces and states are much quieter – and typically more relaxed and friendlier.  There are no guarantees ever that it will be quick, though. One time a few years ago (pre-9/11 even), we were traveling back with our motorcycle and trailer and we were at a very small border crossing. We were expecting to be just waved on through with a few friendly questions, but I think we ended up being part of a border guard training session or something. We even had a dog sniffing through all of our belongings!

In Rachel’s Children, my latest romantic suspense, a secret organization has illegal cargo on board their vehicle as it crosses over the USA/Canada border.  Many lives are at stake and it is imperative that their hidden cargo remains undetected by the border guards.
Rachel’s Children is being launched in Winnipeg at McNally Robinson Booksellers on October 19 at 7:00 PM. Please join me if you can!
