Thanks for the invitation. Let me issue a disclaimer right off the bat: I'm not a crime writer per se. I have yet to find a genre that allows me the freedom to say what I want to say. The crime and murder genre fills that need better than most.
I'm currently up to my elbows in two projects. One is espionage, tying Islamic terrorism to the illegal alien issue. The second is an old style western, with a bit of a murder mystery inside, as well as a paranormal twist.
I'll soon be posting a short story, based on the western novel, to get some feedback.
Barbara and I are retired. I assumed (really bad word) we would have time to communicate with friends and travel. Guess what! Didn't happen. Our writing projects keep us cooped up in a 12 by 14 office poring over our writings.
The finger was hell linda, I was sitting on that panel dosed up with what the hospital injected in me and my concentration was not at its best. I dont know if I will be on Harragate next year but I will be paying a visit. it is only an hour and twenty minutes from where I live. When you come over besure to visit the NORTH EAST. it is not called the lost kingdom for nothing, our coastline and our countryside is magnificant.
Hello Linda, five minutes after I said the sun was shining yesterday it was bloody hailstoning.
The Road To Hell is finished but because I was blind for a good four months I was late and fell behind. I will let you know when it is coming out. I am now on with Thorn In My Side. A few weeks ago a comment in a newspaper made me smile, (Great books but there are more murders in Houghton le spring than there are in Midsummer)
so I thought time to take the whole Seahills gang on a holiday, So book no, six is set in the fantastic location of Holy Island. A hell of a lot went on there in the islands past,and it means I can escape from my desk to do research. Really it is only about an hour and fifty minutes away. But well worth going to if you are over here again Linda. When I get a date for The Road To Hell I will send you some more book marks for your customers.
Hi Linda nice to hear from you, just recovering from this dreadful bug that is doing the rounds over here,but today the sun is brilliant and after a long hard winter what a difference it makes. sheila q
Always interested in travelers. On a cruise this past spring had 4 New Zealanders as table mates. Loved them. Book buyer? Hmmm. Was at Powell's Books (very large books store in Oregon, used and new) and was selling a few oldies. I was there when their book scots were in. The idea facinated me. It keeps binging around in the brain pan as a book idea. Patg
Some good authors on your list, but it's your job to know the good writers ... and Frazier is coming back in the fall in another series. Well, Kelsey Grammer is, not sure he'll play Frazier, but someone very like him, I'm sure.
