Posts Tagged ‘Massachusetts’

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!

plymouth-coaIf you live in Plymouth, Massachusetts, or know someone who enjoys the varied programs offered by their Council on Aging, I’m pleased to let you know that I’ll be the first speaker in their new series ‘Meet the Author’ beginning this Wednesday, October 26, 2pm-4pm.

My author talk is titled ‘The Ins and Outs of Writing my Debut Mystery’. From initial idea through research and writing groups to publication, I’ll include amusing anecdotes that happened along the way as I wrote ‘The Uninvited Guest’.

After a short reading from my story, I’ll answer questions, and gladly autograph copies of my book.

If you’re able to join us, I look forward to seeing you there! Bring a friend!
