Work continues on my latest book, yet untitled. What is the story line? I'm glad you asked. In essence, two geriatric delinquents plot against their aging rock star brother who supports a proposal to legalize marijuana. As you might imagine, there's plenty of humor surrounding the family of Agatha, Clarabeth and Thaddeus Oglethorpe. Everyone in the small town of Summerdale, Mississippi thinks they speak with a lisp. So far, I've written about 10,000 words in the past two or three weeks. And while I have no deadlines staring me down, I'd like to finish the first draft by April Fools Day. Somehow, that feels appropriate.

Curses, my humorous paranormal mystery, is back from the editor. I’m on my second pass through the edits and making a few suggested changes. In the coming weeks, I’ll be shopping the novel to literary agents and keeping my fingers crossed. Meanwhile, I’m writing a new book, which I’m calling a cozy comedy. I’ll not reveal any plotting at this point, but I feel good about the first five chapters. I'm undecided on a title for the book. That will come later.
