SOUTH OF THE PIER
a Murder Mystery
Janet Elizabeth Lynn
April marks the anniversary of the release of my first murder mystery, of South of the Pier.
Several years ago, I went to Guatemala with my sister to bring home a beautiful little girl she had adopted. While we were there, a story I had rolling around in my head suddenly came together. It became the inspiration for South of the Pier as well as the entire Pier Murder series.
I happened to be there during Easter Week, all of Guatemala City was getting ready for the special day. We were fortunate to be there for the Semana Santa Processions with the Alfombras. An amazingly spiritual procession filled with symbolism and beautiful art. This sparked the entire novel and I couldn't wait to get back to my hotel and start writing.
