My blog

Have you noticed that I haven’t written in a while? Me too. I’ve been busy. My day job heated up to the point of my working morning until night seven exhausting days a week, and something had to give. (First it was personal hygiene, then it was this…)

It has, however, been brought to my attention that I should have mentioned I just released a new book, LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE. The 2nd in the Kate Conway series. So. I’ve brought it to your attention. I could have linked it to amazon so you could just click and buy it, but I’m lazy and it always takes me a minute to figure out how to link, so I didn’t. But you’re clever. I trust you know how to go to amazon without my help.

I must confess that lately, when I should be working, I find myself daydreaming about somewhere, somehow in the not-too-distant future, having the time to stomp about thinking of my next book. To write and rewrite it without day jobs and deadlines and book sales concerns… along with leisurely brunches, passionate all day sex, glasses of wine by the pool, lying in bed early one morning in Marrakesh on a cool, white sheet listening to the call to prayer outside my window…

Sorry. Got carried away. Not once, I must admit, do I daydream about having more time to blog.

If you missed the tweets and Facebook and other places I’ve mentioned LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE, don’t feel bad. Personally, I think you’re probably busy too. You’ve got work, life, family, reading other authors… You probably shower more consistently than I have lately. (I work from home, which is my excuse.) It’s really hard to do everything, isn’t it? So – if I could, I’d give us both the gift of time. Beautiful, unscheduled time. What do you want to do with it?

    I wish I had the time to read all the books that I want to read. I want time to do just that…read and still do the day job and travel.

    Plan breakfasts for librarians at Bouchercon?
