Q: Alec and Julie Tanner are more in the background in this novel. Were you more interested in the lives of the disparate group of people who found themselves involved in a murder investigation?

A: Yes, I was trying to write a traditional fair play detective story, which meant focusing more on the suspects and their characters and relationships than on the detectives. Alec and Julie will have a more prominent role in the next book

Q: Aloha, Guy! THINK I just finished your book, kindle version. Want to tell you how much I enjoyed it, but only have 250 characters :( ?: does it end with Barbara seeing her mother on the swing in the park? Or is it just the kindle version? Abrupt

A: Hello Kay. Thanks for getting in touch. Yes, that is the ending. Many people have said it ends very suddenly and not with a full answer. But I've done that purposely. And yes, you are supposed to think that's Barbara's mother - her second chance with the experiment.

Q: Hi! I'm having a book themed wedding in November and plan on actually naming one of the tables Stargazy Pie after your novel. The novel is however hard to find in the US and all I have is my copy. Do you know where I can get more? Thanks!

A: Oh - how lovely and what a great idea! Sadly, the book is now out of print, but there should be some second hand copies on Amazon if that helps! Many congratulations and I hope you have a fantastic wedding! Love Laura X
