A Day of Potpourri


You'd think as a writer, I could come up with many topics to write about on my blog. Alas, that would be a big NO. I have a terrible time trying to come up with something to write about. Today, I realized it has been months since I posted on here, so let me see what I can come up with.


I get really bored staying home all the time alone. With places opening back up, I have my eye on a couple coffee shops that I might go to do some writing. I especially want to try a Tea Shop that opened not long ago in my town. I will definitely keep you updated on how that goes.


 Last month, I finished the third book in my Nathan Perry Mystery Series, Witch Hunt. My publisher is still working on getting the edits to me, but we're hoping it will be available by Christmas. Here's a little teaser - Someone is killing the witches in Mystic, and Detective Nathan Perry is trying to find out who it is.

I've already started working on book four in the series. The working title is Murder in Mystic Hollow. It will be a modern day retelling of Washington Irving's Legend of Sleepy Hollow, one of my favorite stories.


While working on that, I occasionally work on a book I started a few years ago about a female private investigator working in Louisville, Kentucky. I have no title for it as yet, but it's a good distraction to work on when I get stuck on my other book. Not to mention how much I love researching about art thefts.



Speaking of research, I am a television-a-holic. I spent way too much time watching TV, but I call it research. My favorite shows are usually police shows, and since my private investigator work-in-progress book centers around an art theft, I have been watching documentaries on Netflix about art theft. 

I've also been doing some online research about art thefts. When you see those little cartoons about a writer's online search history, They're all true. I think about that every time, I google something for my book.

 That's about all I've got for today. I'll post on my Facebook page and on Twitter whenever I update again, or just check back whenever you feel like it.
