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).
March 29 is Ladies of Intrigue, a day of celebrating women mystery authors, hosted by the Orange County chapter of Sisters in Crime. I’ll be the emcee for the day. You can take that as an invitation or a warning. (http://www.ocsistersincrime.org/index.htm)
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!
