Welcome to my home page, where you can get the latest scoop!
2014 is going to be Grrreat!
This is the Chinese Year of the Horse, the sign I was born under, and I’m not only expecting it to be a great year, I’m going to do my darndest to make it so.
So far, my best news is that I finally have a cover for Murder on the Hoof. What do you think? Isn’t it pretty?
The tagline is: She was looking for a horse. What she found was romance — and danger.
My hope is to have this book out by the first of June. If you want to know when it hits the shelves, you can either drop me a line or go to my Amazon page (http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B002C7FHZW) and click on the link to the right to be notified when it’s on sale. Cool, huh?
So far, I started 2014 with a lovely day at the Placentia Round Table Women’s Club, where I spoke about my life as a wife, mother, author, and all-around human being trying to get the right answers to Life. They were such a great group — I loved being there. They’re a philanthropic organization, which activated my volunteer muscle. If I wasn’t so busy with my other duties, I’d be a member in a heartbeat.
In February, I’ll be at the Pomona Horse Expo with Snoopy’s book (http://horseexpoevents.com/bookcorral.html). Snoopy’s Mini-Me (my Breyer Snoopy) will also be making an appearance.
President’s Day weekend, I’ll be teaching at the Southern California Writer’s Conference in San Diego (http://www.writersconference.com/sd). I’m giving a class on plotting a mystery, called “Storytelling is Murder, She Wrote.” We’ll be dissecting an episode of a famous TV mystery, which should be a lot of fun.
March 20–23 is Left Coast Crime in Monterey. I’ll be there, hopefully on a panel (http://www.leftcoastcrime.org/2014/index.html).
June 13–15 is the Western States Horse Expo in Sacramento. Murder on the Hoof should be out. You do the math. (http://www.horsexpo.com/)
Snoopy and I will also be going to a horse show here and there. This year, Frostie may join us.
BTW, if you want to listen to me ramble aimlessly about writing, I’ve been privileged to be a guest on two shows. You can check them out here:
• Garrett Miller’s Blogtalk Radio show, RatedGRadio. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/garrettmiller/2013/09/13/rated-g-radio
• Jason Matthews’ Google+ Show, Indie Authors. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yOT9ZY4TnA
The mysteries and humor are all still available and selling as ebooks and paperbacks. Take a tour of my author page on Amazon, pick out your favorite, and start reading immediately. Why wait?
Where will I be next?
Stay tuned… I’ll post more as I book ‘em.
In the meantime,
Keep reading, Peeps!
