But sometimes it is, when you forget that you’re supposed to write a post. Which is exactly what I did. I’m supposed to have something new up on the 4th Monday of the month and I forgot. I’ll try to make up for it now.
The good thing about old age–at least in my case–I’ve had the opportunity to see much of my writing in print.And on the personal side, I’m still here to enjoy my children, grand kids, great-grands, and great-great grands. Another great grand is due in January, and a great-great in the spring.
I have many, many great memories, and many of them are connected to writing. When I was younger and enjoyed airplane travel, hubby I attended many mystery cons all over the U.S. We visited many states we’d never had gone to otherwise. We fell in love with Omaha, Nebraska, enjoyed Milwaukee and Madison Wisconsin, had a blast in Chicago during a big snow storm, and so many more great places.
One big highlight was being asked to be an instructor at the Maui Writers Retreat, which meant a wonderful trip to Hawaii. Hubby went along, and while I worked, he enjoyed the sights.
We made so many writer and reader friends along the way, and when we’d go from one place to another, it was like a reunion.
These days, I still do events, but only those that are closer to home.
And yes, I’m still writing mysteries–that’s something I can do without leaving home.
I’m working on a new Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, and nearly finished. After that I will start the rewriting.
My latest Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery is getting great reviews. Here’s the latest:
4 Stars Falling in love with Tempe!
“This is book 15 of the series, but the only one that I have read. I picked it up and could follow it without having to read the 14 that came before it. However, I may want to start the series when I can, just because there was something about Tempe that I loved. If there are more to come after this, I will also read them. I’m a sucker for a good series, and to have one this long says how well the writer loves her characters. This story holds the readers attention and is very suspenseful. I love that it takes place in a small town, as the town is almost a character of its own. Well written, perfectly flowing story!” –Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews
See you next time, and I’m putting it on the calendar right now, so I don’t forget.
