It’s way past time for an update on my writing projects. I’ve managed to get a lot of words written—and rewritten—in 2019.
The big news is the upcoming publication of the fourth Mary MacDougall historical mystery, A Fatal Fondness. In it the intrepid young sleuth finally sets up her own detective agency. But with a caveat. Her father requires an older cousin to work there, too—not just as a secretary, but as a chaperone as well. A few trivial cases trickle in. And then one of them explodes into an affair of international intrigue and murder.
A Fatal Fondness will be out in November. In December, I’ll be doing a blog tour hosted by Escape with Dollycas—where there’ll be a giveaway of all three print books in the series. So you may be seeing my mug pop up on some of your favorite mystery blogs.
This year I’ve also been working on the final novel in my Johnny Graphic ghost adventure trilogy. I set out on Johnny’s journey in 2006 and I’m happy (and relieved) to finally bring his story to a rousing, epic conclusion. The final book—as yet untitled—will be out sometime next spring.
And not that it has anything to do with book writing, but the acquisition of a nifty Olympus camera early this summer has totally reignited my passion for photography. The plan is to get up a website featuring all of my significant work, going back a long, long time. Meanwhile, I’ll be periodically posting some shots on my Facebook author page. Be sure to check it out.
