Building Castles and Shit-Scrubbing

16 October 2014 - The ball is no longer in my court. I have passed on the manuscript to my trusted proof-reader as well as to a dear friend with whom I bounced off ideas and storyline progression during the whole writing process. I have finally shared my newborn creative offspring with a closed circle of people.



After the necessary cosmetic and structural changes to the book I anticipate carrying over in the coming month or two, I will be able to share my work…

I gave her my name and contact…

Review: "Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot: A Jesse Stone Novel" by Reed Farrel Coleman

Paradise Police Chief Jesse Stone only went to the reunion in New York of his old triple-a team to get rid of the past.

It was an all-expenses paid trip by way of Vic Prado, former roommate, and the man who took his girl and who was part of the double-play that ended Jessie’s career. The past is not a friend that Jesse wants to…
