On Saturday night, my husband and
I attended a fantastic fireworks display for the Fourth of July.It was in Marina del Rey, where some good
friends live.Because we didn't intend
to stay overnight--not with our dogs at home--we went down there early in the day to try
to find a parking space that would allow us to leave without getting into the
worst of the departing traffic and were only partially successful.That meant it took us a long time to leave
the parking lot we did find. But we eventually did get out and home and into
the loving licks of our dogs.
Cut to the next day, which I
largely spent killing someone.Okay, you
know what I mean.I'm a mystery writer,
so I'd reached the part of the manuscript I'm working on where I had to plan
for the murder of the victim whose killing needs to be solved in the
story.I'm working on Superstition
Mystery #3.It won't be released for a
while but my deadline isn't extremely far away.You won't get to read it for a while, though.The first Superstition Mystery, LostUnder a Ladder, came out last October, and the second, Knock on Wood, will be released this
October.You see the pattern?The one I'm working on now should be out in
October of 2016.
And in between are my Barkery
& Biscuits Mysteries.The first of
those, Bite the Biscuit, came out in
May.I'm not writing a manuscript in
that series at the moment, but I am testing dog treat recipes for inclusion in
one of them--and boy, are my pups happy about that!
Anyway, enough of my
apologies.I'm late, but I'm here.Happy July, everyone!
