Dr. Briar Lee Mitchell
“Write what you know” is the classic advice given to authors. Briar Lee Mitchell definitely seems to adhere to that maxim.
The polar setting for Briar’s WALKING ON MARS serial echoes her experiences in the world’s coldest climate as a guest at McMurdo Base in Antarctica, along with James Cameron. Warming up on Andros Island in the Bahamas helped her set the scene for DARK LIGHTS. She and her dive partners were offered $100 rewards from the Navy base there should any of them find a live torpedo out on the reefs.
