By all means, read the stuff you want to write. I would think that, living in Singapore and knowing the territory, that you could turn out some pretting interesting stuff.

Nice to see that somebody recognizes that just because you've put 50,000 words on a page that the novel isn't finished. Time for you to pick one, work it over, and send it out. And I mean "work" it over, not look it over.

Ovidia, thank you for your kind condolences and please forgive me for not replying sooner. I've been having serious problems with my computer. My latest book, Escape, is now online at Fictionwise and will be available on Amazon.com next week. Thanks for asking. :)

Yes please, Jean!
& I'll try ordering it online--book shops here can be a bit iffy about importing stuff!

Thank you, Ovidia! I have a book coming out in August titled, Escape on the Wind. It's a Wyoming historical novel featuring members of Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch. I'll let you know when it's available. :-)

Love the picture of you. I'm impressed that you made NaNoWriMo work!

I love writing comedy (scripts and standup). It just doesn't pay well. But I will get back to it soon just for fun.

Thank you, Ovidia. I would be interested to know if any of my books are available in Singapore. I've seen them advertised on the Japanese Amazon.com, which amazes me no end. lol

Yes, all that first hand experience and editing has really come in handy. :-) And it's a lot more fun making up crime than getting all the facts straight for journalisitic reporting.

thank you, Jean--& good luck with your current novel-in-progress too!
Good to know we have reading tastes in common guess that means I'll probably love your books!
