Welcome to my page for all things "Hampton Beach." Here, I will share with you some of the images taken by my readers and myself in the Hamptons. Stay tuned to the page as there's more coming!

A Fan at Ponquogue Beach

On the Hunt in Hampton Beach

My sorority sister recently attended our college reunion at SUNY Oswego. She'd previously written to me saying she'd read the Hampton Thoroughbreds series books one through four and loved them. While in the Hamptons, she took off in search of places mentioned in the books. She located Ponquogue Beach in Hampton Bays and walked in the sand and surf (see photo). The next morning, she headed to Eckart's Luncheonette in Westhampton Beach. She texted me, "I've just eaten the best egg sandwich I've ever tasted!" If you are headed out to the Hamptons, email me and I'll share some of the great places to visit, especially the North Fork, which now is full of vineyards and wine tasting rooms, plus quaint small towns.

Eckart's Luncheonette

Eckart's Luncheonette

ECKART’s LUNCHEONETTE, run by the Eckart family, is featured in many scenes of my books in the Hampton Thoroughbreds series. When home in Hampton Beach, I have breakfast here most mornings. I even made the matriarch, Shirley Eckart, a character in Book Four: CHRISTMAS, HAMPTONS' STYLE.

Tea With a Fan

Tea With a Fan

What do you do when a fan invites you to have tea when you're in the Hamptons? You go, of course! It was a beautiful sunny day when I visited. When I stepped out onto the deck, I found the waterfront home overlooked Ponquogue Bridge, leading to Dune Road in Hampton Bays and the Shinnecock Inlet mentioned in several books. What a truly delightful afternoon with my fan and her husband. I was invited to come again anytime, and we text from time to time to keep in touch.

Christmas, Hamptons' Style in Puerto Rico

Nothing like having a friend text you pictures of her enjoying your book while she's poolside in Puerto Rico. Please note that this author was sitting watching the snow fly outdoors while she tried to stay warm by the fire.
