It was a great idea: a 'Wine' & Cheese & Books party in a library. Snack and beverages prompted mixing and mingling. Each of the writers read from our work, then we had trivia contests and other book-related games. The only thing wrong with the event was that it was too short.
Also, my review of The Shadow Tracer is in this month’s The Big Thrill, the newsletter of the International Thriller Writers. What if you had to give up your entire life and disappear in order to keep…Continue

On Amazon, Shamcq said: “I've read the entire Hannibal Jone series and Russian Roulette continues to be a great story as well. Missed his usual buddies in this book, but it's good to change it up, and the characters in this story all tied together nicely. I'll keep looking for the next book."…
