A Special Around The Fire with C. B. Clark and her Visit to Iceland. Bonus! She has a New Release too.
Hi Everyone! I have a special Saturday Spotlight for you. I couldn't pass up the chance to bring a fellow camper, adventurer and Wild Rose Press author to you. C. B. took a trip to Iceland and she offered to tell us about it and her newest release. So with no more jabbering from me let me introduce today's guest C. B. I'm so glad you could stop by the fire today. I'm going to hand it off to you while I sit back and sip a cuppa while you tell me all about your trip. Was it fabulous?
My recent trip to Iceland was incredible. It’s impossible to describe the natural beauty of Iceland without using superlatives. Volcanic activity is evident everywhere. Clouds of steam billow from volcanic vents, geysers shoot boiling water high into the air, and natural hot springs are abundant. In early June, the rugged moon-like terrain is covered with purple lupins, and the volcanic crags are home to thousands of nesting birds. Waterfalls, each one more stunning than the one before, are around every corner.
The popular Golden Circle Route takes in Pingviller National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage site) with its numerous waterfalls, views of distant glaciers, and the site of the first parliament in Iceland. At Geysir Thermal Area, hot steam erupts 20 meters into the air from the Great Geyser, while bubbling mud pots of boiling water surround you. Gullfoss (Gold Waterfall) and the nearby volcanic crater are stunning.
The Ring Road led us to the small, picturesque village of Vik. Along the way we visited countless gorgeous waterfalls. At Seljalandsfoss, we were able to walk behind the waterfall. An incredible experience and well worth the soaking from the spray. Sea arches, basalt columns, sea stacks, and sea caves are set amidst black sand beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see.
Snaefellsnes Peninsula, a two-hour drive from Reykavik, is an area where few tourists travel. Hexagonal basalt columns, deep ravines, volcanic craters, cliffs, sea arches, and a beautiful white sand beach are overseen by a towering volcano topped with a massive glacier.
Next, we flew to Eastern Iceland to the tiny fishing village of Borgarfordour. We spent five days trekking in this rugged, pristine area through knee-deep snow, and across steep volcanic slopes with beautiful vistas of snow-covered mountains. Seals frolicked in the aquamarine waters of a small bay, and a herd of reindeer forded an ocean inlet. Hundreds of nesting puffins watched us from their perches on the volcanic rocks.
The local food of fish and lamb and hearty bread was delicious, and the people friendly and generous. Combined with out-of-this world scenery, Iceland is a must-see country.
Well you've wet my whistle for it. My cousin-in-law was married there many years ago and I've had a hankering to visit. My problem? Don't know how I'd get the camper there. I love the pictures you sent. Before you head off into the sunset can you tell us a bit about your September 14, release?
Can their love survive a killer intent on repeating the past?
When small-town college instructor Candace Cooper discovers bloody, bare footprints in the snow while running in a state park deep in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, it brings back the horrific nightmare of her past.
Detective Aiden Farrell is determined to redeem himself in his new position in Colorado, even if that means ignoring his growing feelings for the beautiful professor he meets during an investigation. His fear that the footprints she saw are connected to a recent spate of missing teens intensifies when Candace is assaulted on campus.
Aiden and Candace join forces, but as they start unraveling the truth, they get closer to each other—and to a killer who'll stop at nothing to achieve his nefarious goal.
Caught between duty and love, Aiden fights in a race against time to save the woman he loves.

What a fabulous trip! Your descriptions of Iceland are wonderful. Oddly, you are the third person I know who went to Iceland this year. Must be the best kept secret vacation spot. Best wishes on your new thriller romance. I really enjoyed the book. You lead an interesting life!
