Every year our writers group celebrates Robert Burns’ birthday in January with a night of poetry. Some of us write our own; some of us read favorite poems. Always at Doug’s house because he started the tradition, the poetry night has become one of our favorite Tuesdays of the year. Wearing plaid is mandated and there is even a kilt now and then. Where was the camera?
This week Doug Jones and I finished our manuscript and submitted it to our editor at Berkley. A Season of Darkness is the Marcia Trimble story. It won’t be out for months, but I’m hoping to spread the word. People in Nashville have been captivated by the murder of the nine-year-old Girl Scout for almost 35 years. At last, her killer was convicted in the July trial. Doug and I have made every effort to tell the accurate and very detailed story. More about this in the months to come.
I resolve to be better about posting news on the website!
