For those of you who enjoyed Stone Cold, the next one in the series, Minutes to Midnight, is in the works. Now if I could only find my notes. Have you seen them?

I need to quit blinking and finish my latest novel. Rebecca Watson isn’t happy her latest crime thriller isn’t finished. She told me if I don’t pick up the pace, she’s going to have her dog Samantha take a bite out of my keister. Was that a threat? Certainly not. Keister must be French for a roll or something doughy. Right?

Anyway, here’s a quick query of the story.

Detective Rebecca Watson of the Eugene Falls Police Department is getting ready for her Drill Weekend in the Navy Reserves when she gets the call from her lieutenant. He wants her to check a crime scene of a serial killer who was severely injured during an automobile accident while transporting bodies in 55-gallon drums. Her boss believes this is an open and shut case, but upon further investigation Watson realizes the serial killer had a partner. While working the case, she is activated in the Navy onboard the USS Vella Gulf.

While working onboard the ship, she uncovers there may be a serial killer on the Vella Gulf who is murdering prostitutes in each port. Nothing can prepare her for the gauntlet of turmoil and trouble that may lead to her demise by uncovering the true motive behind the murders.

Relentlessly pursuing two unknown serial killers, one at home and one at sea throws Watson into emotional disorder as she fights to keep control—driven to bring these monsters to justice.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading this new crime thriller as much as I loved writing it. In any case, as I finish this update, I plan on finishing up the final draft by the end of the month and hope to be ready for publication through The Wild Rose Press by the end of April. Although, May could be a slim possibility.

Rebecca just told me April or else. If you don’t hear from me on April 1st, it’s not a joke. Send out the search party.

Oh, now Rebecca says she was kidding. Whew!

If you haven’t read Stone Cold, it’s never too late.

I’m excited that Spring is here, although in Florida, that doesn’t mean a lot. The Florida Panhandle usually consists of two seasons—summer and cold fronts. However, this year we had a longer winter for us. The coolness against my face felt refreshing […]
