That question is much like asking a mother which of her children is her favorte.
Frankly, I don't have a favorite. For the next few days I'll write about some of the books in the Deputy Tempe Crabtree series, and what I like about each one.
Today, I'll write about Bears With Us.
First, I really love this cover!
Right now, we're in the middle of a drought here in the foothills of the Sierra, which means we've had several fires around us--and the wildlife has come down to find water and food. And among this wildlife, of course are bears.
Neighbors have reported bear scat on their patios. One scared woman posted that she had a mama bear and two cubs roaming around her house and was afraid to come out. Trash cans have been overturned. Yes, the bears are with us again.
Some of that was going on while I was writing Bears With Us, but the real impetus came from my grandson who at the time was an Aspen CO policeman and spent a great deal of time chasing bears out of people's homes.
I also had just learned about an interesting form of Alzheimer's, Lewy Body Dementia.
I managed to come up with a plot using both topics--and had a lot of fun doing it.
So, if you haven't read, Bears With Us yet, hop on over to Amazon or Barnes and Noble to get a copy--available in print or as an e-book.
And for all the different formats, head on over to the publisher's site:
