Next month, I'll be again participating in the National Novel Writing Month, NaNoWriMo. The goal is to write a 50,000 word rough draft in 30 days. I've participated since 2002, but have never achieved the 50,000 words in 30 days. However, four out of my five published books were started as NaNo books, so I count that as a success. This year's book is titled, "A Mountain of Deception." Hopefully, it will be available by next summer.
Tessa Cooper has taken a year long sabbatical from teaching English at a

didn't intend to fall in love with the handyman while there or to find
herself caught in the middle of some illegal activities, but there she
From all outward appearances, Silas Newberry is a man with
secrets, including being involved in some bad things. Inadvertently, he
has brought Tessa into the middle of them. In his heart, he cares deeply
for her, but to keep her safe, he may have to end it, even if she
doesn't want to let go.
Wish me luck.
