Happy New Year!

I set writing goals for the New Year rather than the usual personal resolutions (that I ignore).

  • Finish and publish Forever After, the third Detective Scott McGregor mystery
  • Complete and submit a short story for the Sisters in Crime Guppy anthology Hook, Line, and Sinker
  • Complete and submit a short story for the Omni anthology From out of the Shadows
  • Start writing my next book, a “cozy” mystery

A “cozy” mystery is told from the point of view of a character who isn’t a crime solving professional. Lynn Carter, Detective Scott McGregor’s girlfriend, will solve a murder for which Scott’s best friend is accused. Scott can’t work on the case because of a conflict of interest.

Lynn kept hogging the spotlight in Forever After, so I decided she needed to be the main character in a story of her own.

Wishing you the best in 2022.
