     “Unaware at what violent struggle was happening that very moment inside the hotel, Ms. Orange left the hotel on the beach in Santa Monica and walked along the promenade, Third Street, through town.  The street performers were already gathering, taking out their instruments, setting up their booths, taking out their wares, and assembling their stilts, juggling implements and sundry items. 

     She passed through them, feeling as if she was amidst a circus or a fete like back home in London.  She made her way to the train station.

     When Ms. Orange boarded the train that morning for the ride to Los Angeles to meet Captain Hadrian, the ground was covered in…”

Here is the first page of my Sir Arthur Conan Doyle dedicated novel:

“The Mysterious House of Mrs. Hutson”

“The gray half light weakly competed for right to pierce the shadowed study.  It was late winter, early spring, and yet the weather refused to warm, to change, to capitulate, like some spoiled child unwilling to give up his toy.  There were thick clouds in the sky and although it was afternoon, it appeared to be night.  There was a chill breeze and showers came and went.  There were so many memories in this study, Mrs. Hutson was devastated to have to give up the house on Baker Street and sell it.  It was almost as if it was her heart and if she gave it away, she might die.  She remembered the constant calls for tea amid other strange requests that her former employer demanded of her at the top of his lungs.  One time he had shouted for a hammer,”

Here is the first page of my British detective mystery, “The Curious Case of Ms. Orange.”

“Chapter 1 – A Curious Death

 

     Ms. Orange sits in the circus tent; the sound of a carnival faintly comes in from the opening in the flap.  Up on the makeshift stage stands a magician.  He holds the cliché bird in the cage in his one hand, and a silk kerchief in the other.  After several incantations of some ancient, mystical language, he waves the kerchief over the cage, then lays it upon it, completely covering it and the bird inside.  With a smile and a flourish, he then removes the kerchief to reveal the bird has vanished!  Scattered applause circulates among the crowd.  Ms. Orange smiles, shakes her head, and claps in a non-committal effort.  The magician bows and turns to leave the stage.  His performance is over for the afternoon.  Ms. Orange leaves the show at the conclusion of the performance. 

     As she moves among the other tents and performers, a man on stilts passes her, stops, stoops and hands her a flower.  She smiles and thanks him, continuing on her way.  She is wearing a colorful hat, after the fashion of the day, and has it smartly pinned on her perfectly sculpted hair.  She stops in front of a small booth.  Inside is a machine with a gypsy head inside.  The sign above it reads, “Lady Estrella, Fortune Teller.”  A great lover of the occult and mystical arts, Ms. Orange whispers out loud, “Why not!”
