Pursuit in Provence will soon be released as an audiobook. Stay tuned!
It was a lovely evening, interviewing my friend and writer extraordinaire Mary Bess Dunn. We talked about her new book, Fate Havens. Thanks to Parnassus for the event!
Watch our video! We had a lot of fun.
Last year, the Tennessean published an article that I wrote about my father. I’ve posted it on my blogspot:

I was asked to write a blog for the WNBA newsletter on the pros and cons of writing contests. After I sent in the blog, I was actually a finalist in two contests, the Claymore Awards and the Silver Falchion Award, and I won the Silver Falchion. That’s the way it goes; now and then you will win! My blog tells you what to look for and what to look out for!

Our Tuesday night writers group was honored with a visit from Layne Martine, talking about his new book, Permission to Fly.
Reading the book was a treat. Meeting Layne was an inspiration. He talked about life, love, family, writing, and songwriting. He talked about making mistakes and learning from them. He talked about never giving up, never letting life get you down.
There are reviews on Amazon and Goodreads that give more details about the book. I’ll just say it’s a must-read. Filled with humor and wisdom, it’s about real love and – I guess I would say – real happiness.
Thank you, Layng, for a wonderful book and a delightful evening!
Killer Nashville is always a great conference. I’ll be on two panels (writing cozies and creating conflict) and hope to catch a couple of other panels on writing. I’ll get to pitch my novel-in-progress. Saturday night is the Awards banquet. The keynote speaker for this conference is Joyce Carol Oates! So excited!
This exciting announcement came from Killer Nashville. Treachery in Tuscany is a finalist for the Silver Falchion Award, given to a book published in 2018. The winner will be announced at the Killer Nashville conference in August.
