Plumb Alley Day in Abingdon, VA was fun, shared a sales tent with Joe Tennis and Keith Bartlett. Will be teaming up with Joe, Linda Hoagland and probably others in my writing groups at Hungry Mother Park near Marion, VA, on July 17. Come up, down or over and enjoy this beautiful state park, meet some interesting people, even some local and regional writers!

Disguise for Death, starring Royce Thorne, policeman's widow and writer, had been waiting patiently on my computer hard drive. So last year I dusted off my self-pubbing arm, A Different Drummer Publishing, and got it published. Royce has 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 a sequel for Royce, also set in my fictional small city, Fall Creek, and tentatively titled Death Stalks the Wohlford.
