#SaturdaySpotlight: Janet Elizabeth Lynn & Will Zeilinger

Good Morning!

You'll remember today's guests from many visits in the past and their character, Skylar Drake from previous books.

Today Janet and Will are bringing us a brand new title, Strange Markings....

The Pacific breezes blow many things in from the ocean, this time its power, greed, and murder. At the dawn of the television age in 1955, Skylar Drake is called to identify the remains of a fellow movie stuntman found buried in a shallow grave. While there, he is shown mysterious wounds and strange tattoos on two additional bodies.

A wealthy Bel Air matron sends her enticing niece to enlist Drake’s help in locating a missing nephew. The search takes him back to pre-statehood Hawaii where he stopped off on his way to the hell of the Korean War. Unexplained deaths, politics and superstitious locals turn the tropical paradise into a nightmare where nothing is what it seems and no one can be trusted. 

Since Strange Markings is set in Hawaii, Janet decided to send us a recipe instead of an excerpt!

Pineapple Haupia is a traditional dessert at
a Hawaiian style Luau feast.

1-1/2 c. coconut milk
1/1/2 c. water
1/2 c. +2 TB sugar
1/2c. +2 TB cornstarch
1 c. crushed pineapple, drained
In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine coconut milk, water, sugar and cornstarch, stir until thickened. lower heat, continue to cook 5-10 minutes. Transfer mixture to 8-inch pan. Stir in pineapple. Refrigerate until set about 2 hours.

To serve, cut into 2-inch squares. Serves 8-10

Sounds Yummy! You can get Strange Markings at Amazon.

JANET ELIZABETH LYNN and Will Zeilinger are a husband and wife and authors in their own right. Janet has eight novels, Will has four novels. They decided to get together to write noir mysteries set in 1955. STRANGE MARKINGS is the second. The Skylar Drake Murder Mysteries series. They each bring separate talents to the writing team. Getting together to research, interview, and appearances, they complement each other. Traveling the world has given much insight, a long list of friends and a large basket of hotel shampoo and conditioner.

With a son living in Hawaii, I am quite familiar with the luscious and ethnically varied foods available there. The book sounds yummy, too!

Tanya Hanson said...

Wow, I am all over this book! I spend much time in Oahu with family and just got back from The Big Island. In fact, I set a Christmas novels in Honolulu is 1891 so I have a great interest in historic Hasaii too. This book sounds so unique! Best of luck, Janet and Will.

How nice to have a husband and wife work together on a novel! Hawaii seems like a great location for a novel.

Thanks for blogging today Will and Janet. Your recipe sounds like something my niece, who must eat gluten free, would love. Thank you. And enjoy your team writing. The book sounds intriguing. Cheers

This book sounds great! And I love Hawaii. My Hawaiian Heat series is set on Maui. Doing research for Book One, THE MARRIAGE TRAP, was sooo fun! Maybe I should put Pineapple Haupia in Book Two. Thanks for the recipe.

Having NO experience with Hawaii, I bask in the climate, the aura and the foods vicariously. Love it when an author makes the islands real.
