Back from China

I just got back from China where we learned that both the police force and the fire department were part of the People's Army, which is a volunteer professional organization. While I was on the trip I had a chance to read Alan Cook's horror, crime book set in the fifties titled "Honeymoon for Three", a good read with the tension cranking up notch by notch. Also read my first Carl Hiaasen book called "Basket Case"--he has such a good sense of humor and carried it consistently through the book,… Continue

The Business Side of Writing...

I've been at this writing business for 7 years now, starting cold as a new career without any background and taking the classes and learning by experience. Two things I'm good at, paying my taxes and promoting my work in the long term effort that some publisher will believe I'm a good candidate for publication. I think many new writers and even some more experience will find this articles helpful.…

Look for death in unexpected places...

Well, yeah, it makes you look kind of foolish. My husband and I were walking around the neighborhood talking about a plot problem, a kidnapping and well, someone eavesdropped. Are we all hungry for excitement? The neighbor said, who did it happen to? So I blush, explain, no one real got kidnapped it was only make believe... Anyway, the unexpected. I was browsing through "Western Medicinal Plants and Herbs" and found all sorts of herbs that "caused toxicity and death". Hmm. Bound to be one or… Continue

When I was learning to write, someone made a comment about tension in a story. Well, I recognized tension when I saw it, but wasn't really sure how to go about creating it. I had one clue, though, from my husband. When he tells a story, he always gets to the good part, the part where you just have to know more and he stops. So you either have to ask a question and look a little bit dumb, or be patient and wait. I hate waiting.

So I went looking through all the writing books…

"Gumbo and De Pain" accepted

My high tech, sf thriller, mystery short story was recently accepted for publication in "Tabloid Purposes IV". Submissions are still open--it sounds like it's going to be a high visibility publication. I did submarines in a futuristic world, should be fun. I'll be interested in hearing if anyone guesses the ending.

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Traveling? Me? Yup. The entire United States (well, nine cities) Rome and Puerto Vallarta. Just got back with my tan.

I wish the same for you. For myself all I ask for is survival. It is 1 degree here right now and it appears that will be the high for today.

It looks like we'll be snowed in, but that's okay. I like Christmas at home anyway! Merry Christmas to you as well.

Thanks for the Holiday Wishes. The same to you, Sheri.
Now if only I could finish my Christmas shopping. Too cold to go out today with 25 below windchill. I had to push the dog out the door to do her duty.

You seem to be a super writer. Cross over genre is the big thing now; a few years ago an agent would not touch mixed genre. My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my page here on crimespace.
