What’s next?

My latest manuscript, Searching for Gertrude, is off to the editor! The novel itself will arrive in bookstores on January 22nd. It took me forever to write this novel, but I’m extremely proud of how it turned out. I struggled with the work as it’s my first serious novel in a long time. I can be serious, I promise! And the research … If you love history, this may be the book for you!

Unfortunately, there’s no rest for the wicked! It’s time to start working on my next writing project. I’m planning another humorous mystery series. Our heroine is a bit of basket case after her husband leaves her. When she stumbles upon a mystery, she decides – after much pushing from her best friend – to solve it. Whenever she’s in doubt as how to proceed, she just asks herself: “What would Nancy Drew do?” I can’t wait to get started on it and not just because I get to re-read all my favorite Nancy Drew novels!
