Hooray!

Hello Fellow Readers and Writers–

After a LONG drought, I’ve finally published the newest in the Two Old Biddies Mini-Mystery Series.  It’s called Enmeshed in a Cold Case, and, according to some who’ve already read it, it’s the best one so far.  Since it’s #15 in the series, that’s saying a lot!  I’m also planning out the next book, Gossip Knits a Killer.  Sound interesting?

But the project I’m working on right now is for you writers out there.  I going to do a series of books on the craft of writing.  The series will be called Get Organized & Get Writing, and the first book in the series will be How to Assemble and Use a Series Binder.  I’m hoping to release it in late July.  I’ll let you know.  The next book in the series will be How Visual Boards Can Help You Write Your Novel.  (I’ll keep the next books under wraps, for now.  Teaser alert! 🙂 )

So, I’m back in the swing of things.   Both eyes have had their cataracts removed, they’re done making noise on our street, and I’m good to go.  FINALLY!

Until next time, Happy Reading and Writing to you all.

Visual Boards to Help You Write Your Novel

Hello Fellow Readers and Writers–

I’ve been doing something for several of my books that I thought you might find interesting and fun–making Visual Boards. For writers, it sparks imagination. For readers, it’s a fascinating look into the mind of a writer and how they work.

I’m working on a stand-alone novel at the moment. . . . → Read More: Visual Boards to Help You Write Your Novel
