I’m featured at Josh Lanyon’s blog today!

I am SO thrilled to be part of Josh Lanyon’s annual Advent calendar on her Just Joshin’ blog this year. This story started with a question in my mind – what might have happened to Kate Keegan after Jake Riordan left her for Adrien English in Josh’s book The Dark Tide?

Enjoy!!

Trapped to Death is here today!

It’s release day! Trapped to Death is now available in whichever format you prefer. Here are the links:

Amazon Kindle

Amazon Print

Smashwords

Autumn brings a fresh start in academia, but there are signs that Jamie Brodie’s autumn quarter might bring trouble. First, his next door neighbors unexpectedly drop off the grid. Several days later Jamie discovers – with the help of his dog – that something very bad has happened in the neighbors’ house. When the victim is identified, Jamie briefly becomes a suspect – but something far more dangerous is lying in wait for Jamie. And he doesn’t recognize it until it’s too late.

I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my US readers, from both me and, of course, the Brodie-Ferguson clan. Pete and Jamie are spending the holiday in Tucson with Pete’s family. You’ll be able to read all about it on Monday, when Trapped to Death is published.

Have a wonderful holiday!

One more week!

You may be thinking – one more week until what? The election is two weeks away. Trapped to Death won’t be out for five more weeks. Ah – but it’s one more week until NaNoWriMo!

As you can see by the icon to the right, I’ve signed up for the 2016 NaNo. It starts next Tuesday. I’m looking forward to it – not only because it’s fun, but also because it will be a terrific distraction from the last week of election noise.

The book I’ll be writing is Cloistered to Death, which will be Jamie Brodie Mystery # 16. It’s the one that my writing group and I have been unofficially referring to as “Clinton’s book.” Its original title was Defined to Death, but then the plot changed significantly and Defined didn’t work anymore.

It’s required some research – into the Benedictine order of monks, monastery retreats – and money laundering. How does money laundering fit? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see.😀

You can follow my progress by watching the word count climb on the NaNo word tracker in the right column.
