I’m sitting in the loft of my condo in Prescott, where it’s a cool 66 degrees on this nearly July morning. It’s a very conducive spot to write, and I’ve been sticking to my Monday through Friday morning writing schedule.

I’ve just finished Chapter #8 of Book #2, Dead Air, and it includes a double murder, a weeklong manhunt, a hostage situation and much more. The cold case is about a young girl who is abducted and sexually assaulted, but is now an adult. She helps our radio reporter, Lisa, try to find the rapist. Meanwhile, the murder mystery podcast is a 1940s film noir theme, and there are two new episodes on the “Excerpts/Short Stories” page of this website.

Thanks to all those who attended the Peregrine Book Co. recently for my “Facts to Fiction” talk and book signing. It was great seeing good friends and meeting some new ones.
