That Sound You Hear Is Me Counting Down

What’s that sound you ask? An excited voice counting backward? It’s me! Counting down to the much anticipated release of By the Fright of the Silvery Moon. It will, at last, see sunlight and be ready to go into the hands of cozy mystery readers August 2, according to my publisher. Yesterday was an excellent […]

The Computer, Nemo, and a Mystery

The Computer, Nemo, and a Mystery

Only a wire had jarred loose from the unit and that was easily replaced. I’m rejoicing this morning. It’s like the old saying, You don’t miss the water till the well runs […]
