Co-Authors Virginia Cornue and Linda Lombri were the subjects of an interview by "Robin's Nest" Executive Producer/Host Robin Woods. The interview, which is airing daily at 9 a.m. from October 16th November 12th, delves into how the two Montclair friends created the Sandra Troux Mysteries as an homage to original Jersey Girl Nancy Drew. Their three Boomer sheroes began their international sleuthing adventures with The Mystery of the Ming Connection, set in New York, Seoul, Beijing, and Xian. Their second book, Masquerade on the Net - due out in December - takes the three BFFs to Russia, Nigeria and France where they encounter - and solve - an international plot to corner the world's energy and financial markets.

Welcome to the Web site and blog for Sandra Troux Mysteries. As girlhood Nancy Drew fans, we were inspired to create a contemporary series starring Baby Boomers who share our love for this genre. In the first adventure, The Mystery of the Ming Connection, our "s/heroes" -- Sandy Troux, Bobbi Power and Lizbet Sheridan -- track international art thieves and sex traffickers from New York to Seoul to Beijing and Xian. And they confront a diabolical plot by Taiping Rebellion and Nazi descendents to take over China and ultimately the world.
We'll be writing collaboratively and separately about our writing process and about reinventing ourselves as fiction writers. We'll explore the impact of Nancy Drew, including who she inspired, and who we hope Sandy Troux will inspire. We'll touch on the history, cultures and countries we feature in our books. We'll write about Baby Boomer re-invention and new personal paradigms. Finally, we will describe our venture into e-book publishing and writing.
So during these wintery months, go on an Asian adventure with Sandy, Bobbi and Lizbet on your favorite e-book reader!
