My dear friends Stephanie and Marc hosted a book reading and signing of "Baker's Dozen" at their lovely home in D.C. Those were the days. But, I am looking forward to reading and signing my second book "Free For All" in their new place in New York once it's safe to gather and celebrate again.
The outline is coming along. I took best-selling author James Patterson's advice and create a detailed outline with the beats of the story before writing the book. It's how I tackled the "Free For All," and works well for mysteries where keeping track of suspects and clues is essential. I was aiming for this year, but asking editors to work over the holidays seems unreasonable. Plus, I don't think I can make that kind of deadline. I seem to be busier than ever. Thank you for
