Visiting With a Book Club and Ghost Writing

The Fresno Newcomer's Book Club ordered a book for each of its members with an invitation for me to come to the meeting where they would discuss the book.

The book in question was my latest Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery, Judgment Fire. The meeting was held in a beautiful home in a newer section of Fresno. The women, for the most part, weren't quite as old as I am, but came close.

Several told me they loved the book. They had plenty of questions about the book and about me. I visited with them for nearly two hours and enjoyed every minute of it.

Though I have another Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery about half done, right now I've been busy on a ghost writing project. Though I can't tell you much about it, what I can say is that the book is something I've never attempted before and has required quite a bit of research.

I've ghost written other projects, a couple of autobiographys and a fantasy.

What's interesting about ghost writing is it belongs to the person you are writing it for. What they want is what you have to put in it. Hopefully, I'll be able to understand the person's vision and be able to put it into words. Believe me, it isn't easy.

I love writing, so I do enjoy working with someone who has a book "in them" but isn't able to write it.
