Writer’s Update

Hello Fellow Readers and Writers–

Just wanted to bring you up-to-date on what’s happening around here.

1.) I just finished #4 in the Senior Delinquents Mini-Mystery Series, Dead Men Don’t Bring Flowers.  It’s now available on Amazon.

2.) I’m beginning work on the next Two Old Biddies book, Enmeshed in a Cold Case.  There’ll be a super easy and study mesh market bag pattern at the end of the book.  I figured we all have to have our own bags at the market now, and I wanted one that had the handles worked into the bag and not added after, so I designed one. 🙂

3.) A writer friend and I are working on a collaboration called Minute Maid, starring Annie Malone, P.I. and another P.I. named Jake Barrett.  Too much fun!  We’re only about 6 chapters into the book, but it’s full of good twists and turns, already.  Can’t wait to see where this is going!

I’ve had some great reviews of the 26 books I’ve written, and I’d love to hear from you.  What problems do you want addressed as a writer?  What themes do you want to hear about as a reader?  Let me know.  (No, I’m not running out of ideas, I just want to hear what you’d like to learn or read.)

Happy reading and writing to you all,

Jill-Ayn
