Award winning author

I am an award winning author. Originally I only wanted to claim to have written a novel. I progressed, fortunately, to wanting to be a published author. Oh my God, that happened. Never had I ever thought I would be an award winning author. Then in November my first book Shepherd's Pie received a Golden Wings award for excellence in writing. A pinnacle reached. What more could I ask? Then came an awful realization, I must do marketing. That nasty term. Being reduced to a book salesman from award… Continue

Hey Dave!
A cobbler as a protag?
The thought intrigues.
Maybe I should write a novel about a millner!

I'm supposed to add a chatter here. Okay, I'll talk about my work in progress. My newest novel is a stand alone Titled The Smudge.
Paralegal Trisha Morgan only wants to use the ATM one nasty night and get home. She swipes a smudge from the screen and draws back a hand smeared with blood. She’s startled by a moan and finds a dying woman in the alley next to the bank. The woman thrusts a DVD into Trish’s purse while Trish is making a 911 call for help. The disk contains a video of a professional hit of a prominent Chicago businessman.
And the murderer wants it back.
