South Florida is inspirational to many of us (especially come January, despite the days of the frozen iguanas). But it's truly motivating to local writers, many of whom use oh-so-familiar landmarks in their work and will appear at this year's Miami Book Fair International.
Herald staffer and Friend of the Blog Howard Cohen talked to a few of those locals, including Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, who's been entertaining us with her sassy Lupe Solano thrillers for a few years now (and is, like most of us, a big fan of Versailles . . . I could use some cafe con leche right about now).
Check out Howard's story on Garcia-Aguilera, James Grippando and other writers who make South Florida their setting - and their home.
