Reading gives you wings to fly everywhere and anywhere

Accidents and new novels coming soon.

I hope I didn’t lose all of you. I’m not going to go into detail, but I had some back problems and spent many months in bed.  I hope that is a good enough explanation. You have all had problems of your own and I don’t need to bore you with it. The most important thing is I believe I’ll learned to control it.

Now to more pleasant subjects.

Last year is the first time in ten years I didn’t publish a book. I’m making up for it now.

The fifth Arizona Summers book is coming along nicely. I love writing those. They are like not working at all. In the new one, Keith, the chief of police and Arizona’s romantic interest is accused of murder.

Arizona and her friends are left to solve the mystery and find the killer themselves while Keith sits in jail, without bond and the State Police run the investigation.

It has been a while since I’ve written a Kate Nash book. I’m feverishly trying to finish it, but like the rest of you, I don’t know what is going to happen until it happens.

It might sound strange, but when I begin to write the world goes away and the characters take over. Sometimes when I read it later, I wonder where it came from. I can only look up up and say ‘thanks’.

In this Kate Nash mystery, the jury who acquitted a serial killer thirty years before begins to get murdered. Kate and Amy take over the case from the St. Louis Homicide squad because Covid has ravaged their ranks, and no one is available to give the murders the time they deserve: much less find the killer.

The man was guilty, and everyone knew it, yet the jury let him go. Why start killing them after all these years?

My third endeavor is the new Kindle Vella platform. The stories are written in episodes until they are finished. At a later date they will be published in book form. I have one up. Mysteries of Madison Woods. I put one up every Wednesday. The first three episodes are free.

If you want to give it a try you can find it at

As always, my books are free on Kindle Unlimited.

I’ve missed you guys and hope to not leave you hanging again.

So happy to hear that you are recovering after your accidents and hope that your recovery continues! As far as the writing? I’m glad to know you’re a fellow writer who doesn’t always know what’s going to happen next! 🙂 The upcoming books sound great. I’m looking forward to seeing how Arizona and friends solve the murder and free Keith. As for Kate? I already can’t wait to see who and why! Good luck and happy writing.
