Have had some interesting booksigning events this summer. But summer is almost over, Appalachian Fair near my home ends its week-long run tonight. And now we're thinking of fall festivals and winter events, Christmas! I'll be doing a couple of Christmas events, after maybe a last fall event. First is the annual Christmas Connection at the Civic Auditorium, and then Holiday Book Fair at the Town Center Mall. I always enjoy talking to fellow writers I haven't seen for a while, hearing what they're up to, where they've been or going.

Here's a link to the Bristol Herald-Courier newspaper and my interview with Joe Tennis, features writer, for Requiem for a Party Girl. Includes a video, too!

Disguise for Death, starring Royce Thorne, policeman's widow and writer, has been out for a while now, in print and ebook. In that one Royce Thorne had to rethink her decision to keep secret her husband's unfaithfulness more than twenty years ago to save the son he fathered. I'm working on the second in the series, Wrapped for Death, also set in my fictional small city, Fall Creek. The booksigning Royce and Chrys scheduled at the brand new Wohlford Place Inn for the book Royce finished in Disguise is disrupted when a woman lands on her table. Did she fall from the mezzanine balcony or was she pushed? And how is Chrys Wynter involved?
