Q. What is your most surprising discovery on Mystery Shores Island in your first book?
A. That would have to be Tufted Puffins. They have amazing golden head plumes and wear bold white triangles on their faces during the breeding season.
Puffins use their powerful wings to "fly" under the water, but are endearingly clumsy on land. I loved having them show up as part of the mystery.
