Since my last post, I've been preoccupied with one of my other roles. As Administrator of the Memorial Society of the Hudson-Mohawk Region, I've been busy putting out a newsletter and preparing for our annual meeting. Our guest speaker, Lisa Carlson, is a nationally known advocate for funeral consumers, and she'll be talking about "Fractured Funerals" and the importance of advance planning. Lisa is the author of Caring for the Dead: Your Final Act of Love. She's known for her humorous approach to what can be a lugubrious subject, and her real-life stories promise to be stranger than fiction. The meeting will take place on Sunday, October 28, at 2pm at the Schenectady County Library. If anyone's interested, please comment here and I'll post further details.
I'm in the advance planning phase of a mystery involving the funeral industry. Once the meeting is over, I plan to switch gears and immerse myself once more in the writing life. Primary goal: finish editing Eldercide, to be published next year.
