New Book for Fellow Writers!

New Book for Fellow Writers! Years ago I devoted two full years of my life to obtaining an MFA degree in Creative Writing -- a combination of workshops and standard classes. Two years of reading and writing (and teaching, to help pay my way). I went into some serious debt in that effort, but it... Continue Reading →

Writing? Publishing?

Awhile back I wrote about some problems I was having with Lulu, my long-time, go-to print-on-demand platform. While many of those problems have been resolved, some linger, despite some helpful intervention by a particularly attentive customer service rep. It was so frustrating my very supportive husband found himself asking why I persisted. "If it causes... Continue Reading →

Words Matter

Image courtesy of Pexels/Kaboombics.com If you've ever wondered whether what you write matters, if words actually count, you have all the evidence you need in the events of Wednesday this week, the most prominent of many examples we've all witnessed. The insurgents who swarmed our nation's Capitol have been listening to spoken words, reading written... Continue Reading →

The Book Saga Continues…

…but the good news, they're back! Last I checked, all of my ebooks have reappeared on Amazon, though they've gone missing at some of the other online booksellers 😦 It's great to know that RVers who want to gift their fellow RVing friends with an ebook by sharing the fun of a Rollin RV Mystery...

The Case of the Disappearing Books

Sometimes real-life hands us our own mysteries. After writing them for awhile, you'd think I'd be thrilled to have a real life mystery drop in my lap. Not exactly. I've been quiet here but active in other places online, promoting my latest Rollin RV Mystery, Superstition Victim. The other day I was on Amazon (where... Continue Reading →

Price Cuts!

Decided to reduce prices on many of my books, both print and e-version. With so many books to feature here, I'll instead point you to my Books page on the top menu. I'd add a link, but WordPress has shifted us to this block-system of making posts, which of course offers a bajillion more options,... Continue Reading →

Off-Blog…

...a lot is going on! As a mystery writer, I've learned readers want a story told honestly, but they love to be surprised. Sounds ironic, right? How can you be honest yet spring something that's unexpected? Well, a fair balance of revealing clues (including the clues that lead to solving the case) while distracting the... Continue Reading →

Word Is Getting Around…

...about the newest Rollin RV Mystery! Many thanks to Mason Canyon for featuring Superstition Victim in a recent post. When she asked me to do a guest post, I wasn't sure how to approach it until Betty gave me a nudge in the right direction. See for yourself how it all turned out at the... Continue Reading →

Distractions…

As I mentioned last time, I try to limit my TV viewing time... but I have to confess it's been fascinating to see how some shows have been adapting to the stay-at-home orders. Which women are letting their hair coloring fade back to a natural color? Which men are able to tame longer locks? Those... Continue Reading →

COVID Coping!

Oh, it's been too long since I've posted here. Much has been going on behind the screen of this blog -- including my finishing and publishing the third Rollin RV Mystery, "Superstition Victim." Good thing I finished the book a few months ago. I don't think I'd be able to focus on it these days.... Continue Reading →
