A bout Lotus Landry

You have arrived on the author page for Lotus Landry. She was born in the Pacific Northwest and she experienced its somber weather and swam in the big river which is the setting for her first novel. This book is a speculative history of the 1830's. The author witnessed Indians spear fishing at Celilo Falls - a way of tribal life from that period that disappeared after the arrival of modern hydroelectric power of Bonneville Dam.

This author's second novel has a modern Orange County, California, locale and is a chick-lit mystery with a humorous flair. The two female protagonists support themselves by cage fighting and managing social reputations.

Lotus found her voice yet a third time in the story about the animal spirits and charisma of Parker the rabbit.
Lotus is currently converting her garden into a mixture of downsized and artificial foliage in anticipation of water shortages in the Southwest. She also has to contend with urban coyotes who have appointed themselves as population control agents for the domestic animals in the Los Angeles basin. (SAD!) Look for all of Lotus' bulletin boards on Pinterest.

There is a saying,"Heaven will protect the Working Girl". In the cozy mystery (Dead on Arrival in the Homeowner's Association), two women have teamed up for self protection and for mutual emotional support. They have recently moved into a Southern California neighborhood run by a Homeowner's Association. Christine hunts for her missing uncle on the internet as she tries to figure out why he associated with a Vampire rock band. At the same time, she nutures her collection of clients who all happen to have bad online reviews. Helga, a practicing cage fighter, plays Watson to Christine's Holmes.

The remarkable rabbit named 'Parker' is simultaeously a CEO, a standup comedian, a host of drum circles, and a publisher of a gossip animal tabloid. Most of his animal confederates appear to be named for hotels. This is a child's story taken to another level.

*** Special Announcement ***
Parker offers a Shoutout to the hoppers who have escaped the Firenadeo in Thousand Oaks, California. He expects to be giving up his walks with the beautivul Lucia in the Las Virgines National Forest.
