Two chapters, actually. That was yesterday’s accomplishment working on my newest book, Big Lake Accident, and I did the same the day before. So things are moving along pretty well. I’m past the halfway point now, and I think I have an idea who is responsible for the crime in this one. Then again, I […]

Bracing For The Cold

A few days ago the weatherman said that we could expect lows around 16° early this coming week. Now they’ve changed it and said to expect more like 12° and that the wind chill factor could make it feel even colder. I definitely do not approve! Tuesday is our 26th anniversary and we had planned […]

Terry had a follow up appointment at the Center for Rheumatology in Northport yesterday. After the terrible bout of illness she had back in September, which nobody has ever nailed down the cause of, our primary care physician sent her there to be checked for things like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

I got off to a good start yesterday working on my new John Lee Quarrels mystery and kept at it pretty steadily for most of the day. By the time I knocked off late in the afternoon, I had done 5,575 words, which is a pretty good day’s writing. Or dictating, in my case. I […]

Thanks to a lot of hard work by Miss Terry and my proofreaders, “Cool” Judy Rinehimer and Roberta Jensen, my newest John Lee Quarrels mystery, The Road To Wrinkle Ranch, is now available on Amazon. At present, there is the e-book you can purchase, or you can read it for free if you are a […]

I stole the title to today’s blog from my favorite singer of all time, Jimmy Buffett (who is followed closely by Billy Joel). If you haven’t heard the song, here is a YouTube link to it. I think it’s a message we all need right now. My email and newsfeeds and Facebook are all blowing […]

After being awakened in the wee hours of the morning the other night when our neighbor’s place burned to the ground, and then being amped up on adrenaline and not able to get back to sleep, I was really looking forward to some solid dream time before I had to get up early to go […]
