I was surprised by the number of responses I got to yesterday’s blog telling me that we needed to make our freeloading kid move out of our house. I guess people didn’t read that blog entry very well. I had written about one of my readers saying that they had let a relative rent their […]

Clicking the Publish button to upload a new book to Amazon doesn’t mean an author’s work is over. Nope, not even close. And yesterday was a good example of why. I spent a good part of the morning answering a backlog of emails that had built up while I was pushing to get the new […]

Well, it was over a month behind schedule, but last night I finally hit publish on Mullets And Man Buns, my 4th John Lee Quarrels book. This is my 20th mystery novel, and my 30th book. Yep, I hit the big 3-0. It may be my ego talking, but I think that’s a bit of […]
