Back to the Blog

Did you miss me? Sorry to take so long to get back here to the blog.

I finished the manuscript for the new book -- it's not a work of crime fiction, so it's not an Irene Kelly book. But Irene fans, do not fear. I've already started the next Irene book.

In and around starting that new one and finishing the previous manuscript, I spent time at a couple of conferences and speaking at a Sisters in Crime meeting. Had 16 folks here for Thanksgiving (our house is no mansion, but we managed!), and that was fun.

I'm now in the process of reassembling my life. In part that's routine, because all kinds of things get put on hold each time I finish a book, but this time it's a slower process than usual because I had a kind of crazy summer. (Yes, I realize it's almost winter, but once overwhelmed, it takes time to just get back to whelmed.) So I'm afraid it has taken me far longer than expected to get back here.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your patience and support. Thanks for hanging in there!
