My book cover, below, has garnered a lot of attention. Books and Benches review said – “Good thriller!
It tells the story of Chloe, her son Davey, and Police Detective Ross Cullen. Chloe discovered she never knew the man, Jeff, who she had married . . . he simply vanished from her life! She tried to move on, but danger still lurked around her. That’s when Ross, who is investigating her husband’s disappearance, enters her life and comes to her rescue. Will he be able to help her? Will he discover the true identity of Jeff? Together they embark on a journey of discovery, of lies, and secrets.”
I am in Hawaii, having a chance to recharge my batteries. It’s been a busy year, and it took a good week to unwind before I began to relax and really enjoy myself. Nothing like taking a break, but especially in such a fabulous place and climate.
Have I been doing any writing? Not much. Going to the gym every second day, and taking a swim every day, except when the wind blew so strongly the waves were fierce and dangerous. Otherwise, into that fabulous water.
I’ll be back in time for the end of the month. Hope you have a fabulous rest of January.
Winter has arrived, even here on the west coast. Snow came in a flurry of about 5 inches, followed a few days later of another 3 or 4 inches. Now, I know that in most places, that isn’t a lot! But here on the Wet Coast, it’s darned near a blizzard.
The Merry Christmas season has arrived right on the heels of that snow, a very exciting time of year. I love Christmas, the joy and blessings of the season. I want to wish each and every one of you a wonderful holiday and many good wishes for the new year, 2017. And may you get lots of books in your stocking!
I spent the day at the library in Victoria and had an amazing time. Thank you to all the readers and fans who stopped by to say hello and chat about your favourite books. Thanks to the library staff for making the day possible. 🙂
