Back in October, a week after I returned to Massachusetts from my 50th Class Reunion in Delaware, I tumbled from my bicycle into some frightful bushes edging a bike path and broke my wrist in three places. This injury put a big dent in my plans to place Gwen’s second story into the hands of readers.

Burdened with a purple cast, a swollen hand, and not a little pain, I chose to cancel three author events in November with great sadness. One of them will be rescheduled. The other two were unfortunately one-time events.

My cast is now gone, and I’m regaining strength and flexibility in my right hand. I’m finally able to grasp a pen, although a signed autograph still appears a little funky with the restriction of three stiff fingers.

For those of you who enjoyed Gwen’s debut mystery, ‘The Uninvited Guest’, you may want to follow her next adventure in ‘Where There’s Smoke, There’s Trouble’, which takes place the following spring. As the story creator, I imbued Gwen with my personal dislike of cigar smoke and built a story around that aversion.

Here’s a link for your convenience:

Thanks to all of you who continue to support my writing journey!

For those of you who live in mid-state Delaware, I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be returning to my hometown of Smyrna for my 50th J.B. Moore High School Reunion next weekend.

I’m traveling south a few days early to present my Author Talk to the Bon Ayre Complex in Smyrna on Wed morning, as well as the Nobles Pond Complex in Dover on Thursday afternoon.

On Thursday evening, October 12, at 6:30 pm, I’ll be sitting in with the Book Club at the Smyrna Public Library. We’ll be discussing the writing process for my debut mystery ‘The Uninvited  Guest’.

The Book Club meeting is open to the public, and promises to be an interactive session of questions and answers about my writing journey, the story specifics, and plans for future books in the Gwen Andrews series.

After the meeting, copies of ‘The Uninvited Guest’ will be available for purchase and autographing.

Hope to see you there!

kent-county-bookmobileYou may or may not be aware that I was born and raised in mid-state Delaware. When I was five years old, my family moved from the little town of Kenton to a house in the country on Massey’s Mill Pond outside Smyrna .

During the late 50’s and 60’s, when my mother, sister, and I owned pleasure horses or ponies, we would ride them to the end of our dirt road every few weeks and climb aboard the Kent County Bookmobile to check out a few stories and keep our young minds busy.

After college, I followed my heart to southeastern Massachusetts, and live there still.

I am so excited to share with you that I’m driving to Delaware next week to present my author talk titled ‘The Ins and Outs of Writing My Debut Mystery’. Not on the Bookmobile, but at the Kent County Public Library this coming Tuesday evening, Nov 1, at 6:30 pm. Address: 497 S. Red Haven Lane, Dover, DE.

In addition to the Kent County Public Library, I’m scheduled at the following venues during the remainder of next week:

Wednesday, Nov 2, noon, Mamie A. Warren Senior Center, 1775 Wheatley’s Pond Rd, Smyrna, DE

Friday, Nov 4, 10 am, Modern Maturity Center, 1121 Forrest Avenue, Dover, DE

Saturday, Nov 5, 10:30 am – 2:30 pm, Dover Public Library Author Day, 35 E. Loockerman St, Dover, DE

Ending my talk with a brief reading from ‘The Uninvited Guest’, I’ll answer questions about writing my story and gladly autograph copies of my book.

I’m hoping that a few of my J.B. Moore High School classmates who still live in the area will join the audience at one of these locations!

See you there!
