What's Going in in My Life--Writing and Personal

I never, ever complain about being bored. Life is too hectic for boredome to set in, I'll be wornout long before that happens.

In my writing life, I'm still promoting my latest, Violent Departrues.  I recenlty offered a few Kindle copies free in exhange for honest reviews, and I've had some. Of course the hope is that the reader will like the book well enough to read some of the other books in the Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery series.


I also participated in a neighborhood book boutique in someone's lovely yard. The day was perfect, neither too hot nor too cold. Many people came to see what was going on, others to seek out particular writers. I met and talked to many interesting people including one long time fan who has every book I've ever written. 


I recently finished writing my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery which is now titled Not As It Seems. Once my critique group has heard the last chapter, I'll go over it again, and send it off to my publisher. Something different about this Tempe is that it's set on the Central Coast and in particular Morro Bay and surroundings. 



Yes, I've started writing another Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery. I do have a tentative title.but it might change by the time I'm done. 

Other writing chores include editing a quarterly newsletter for the Public Safety Writers Association. 

In my personal life, I'm still doing program designs for folks wanting to go into the residential care business, writing a monthly newsletter for administrators of residential care homes, Those of you who follow me on Facebook  know that I teach a children's Sunday School class and I have a big family.

My great-grandson and his bride have come to live with us for awhile--mainly because our upstairs guest bedroom offers them some privacy. It's fun to have them around.

We have a daughter and son nearby, and other grands and great-grands, meaning we aare fortunate to be able to spend a lot of time with them.

We will soon be visiting our eldest daughter in Wildomar and be able to see more grandkids and their offspring.

And when I can, I squeeze in reading and writing reviews.

Looking forward to the next Tempe novel. Have been to Morrow Bay, waiting to see what Tempe gets in to there.

I'll certainly let everyone know when Not As it Seems comes out. This
is one of the few times I've written about a place and called it by it's real name.

Oh, my, you have a busy life. You have to be dedicated to your art to fit the writing of two books into such a busy schedule and then to be hosting a family at your home at the same time! Keep up the fine writing forever.
