I can’t believe that it is spitting snow at this moment outside my window and the temperature is dropping steadily.  But that is the way it is here in Colorado.  As they say, if you don’t like the weather wait five minutes, it will change.    Our low tonight is supposed to be 28 degrees with more snow on Monday.  I hope it doesn’t happen, the snow that is, as the lilac bushes are blooming and my new plants will freeze.  It won’t do any good to cover them with a sheet as the wind is blowing so hard, it will carry the sheet away.  Blast it all.

NEW SNGLE STONE KILLER CVRSince I’m not going out in this mess today, I’m hard at work on THE STONE KILLER.  I have to get this novel finished and I am ready to see the story come to an end.  But, it will end when the characters say it is finished.  There are a lot of things to be resolved yet, a lot of details to be added.  I guess I need to get off my butt and get it done.

THE RECKONING keeps boring into my brain late at night, and I am compelled to jot down all the thoughts racing through my mind.  It’s a story of payback for crimes committed.  I haven’t an inkling as to the book cover yet, but the imagine will pop into my head and the cover will take shape.  You will be happy to know the same characters are in the new story.

Well, thanks for listing.  Until we talk again, take care of yourselves and stay safe.  You are important to me and your families.  You can’t be replaced.





Titan[1]First let me tell you of the newest addition to my household.  His name is Titan, because he has that small dog attitude.  He is a deep, dark chocolate-brown and is the sweetest puppy.  I am so glad I rescued him.  Of course the cats are having an adjustment.  Pyewacket seem to so, “Oh, a dog.  Okay.”  Stanley is not so sure, as he was great friends with my toy poodle that died in 2012.  Bandit!  She appears to wonder why in the hell did Mom bring that thing home.  Slowly but steadily she is getting closer and closer to him.  He is a great little dog.  He is a Chihuahua, but larger than most Chihuahuas I’ve seen.  Anyway, he is mine now.

Next, I have to say that when I started to write THE STONE KILLER, I originally planned on it being a romantic suspense.  When the ghost of the first victim appeared, I thought, okay, it’s a paranormal romantic suspense.  Well folks, it just isn’t as I have discovered.  I submitted the first chapter to DearAuthor.com for first page reviews.  They determined that THE STONE KILLER is  crime fiction.  There is romance in the story as well as a ghost, but romance is not the predominate theme. So I have reclassified the book to crime fiction, thriller. If you want to discover if you’re on the right road in writing your book, submit your unpublished first page to DearAuthor.com first page reviews for critique.  Google the site.  You will have to take the good reviews with the bad, but it is worth the experience.

Well, back to work on my “gruesome” story. Hey folks, life can sometimes be gruesome.  I hear it on the news all the time.  That’s where I got the idea for THE STONE KILLER.  BUT, life is filled with good things too which I really do focus on first.  Murder and mayhem is what I write and I hope I’m good at it.  But people who personally know me would tell you it is hard for me to even kill a bug.

So, until we talk again, take care of yourselves, show your love to others and keep writing.  Stay safe.
