One of the things I love most about author events is meeting and getting to know my readers and other authors. I met Mary Walsh at the NOLA Bookstars event held here in New Orleans last October. Mary is from Pennsylvania, but she has spent time here in New Orleans and loves the city. Last weekend, she was in town promoting her new release. Her fondness for New Orleans is reflected in her novel, Fine Spirits Served Here, a work of fiction set at Antoine's Restaurant.
Many of the old buildings in the French Quarter are rumored to be haunted, and Antoine's is no different. Most of the restaurants, bars, and shops in the quarter were once family homes that were later converted to businesses. Some go back to the eighteenth century and are known for paranormal activity.
The story takes place at Antoine's where the main character, Will, is a server. When new server, Elle, starts working there, Will experiences de ja vu and swears he has met her before. He finally figures it out and is stunned when he discovers a connection to her that spans generations. If you love New Orleans and are fascinated by its history and culture, I recommend this book.
Mary is a multi genre author. You can find Fine Spirits Sold Here along with her other books at Amazon.
