Changed my mind!

I have been told all my life that I am in charge of my own destiny! I'm sure that is true because I have once again, changed my direction.

Hold on! I'm talking about writing here, not some facial reconstruction or the like...

I have decided to sneak a book in between the second and third... I'd been thinking about this for a long time and I just feel good about this decision. So, here goes. The next Summer Winter Mystery will not be in LA as originally advertised -- they are staying in NY for one more thrilling ride. I've already started writing NYC: Monopoly on Murder and it's sounding great.

Here's a sample of the first chapter!

"I've seen tons of dead bodies," I said. "And that's a dead body."

"Tons?" The skepticism in my husband's tone was subdued but it was still there.

"Okay. Maybe not tons but I've been to more funerals that I can count and of course, there's our two murder victims, you know."

Anthony gave me a smirk. At lest I think it was a smirk, it was kinda dark.

What brought all this chatter up was a man's body lying on the sidewalk blocking our forward motion. His feet were practically touching the passenger's door of our Ford Expedition. I would've had to step over his number twelve's to open the door. I'm not sure I was prepared to get that close. As it was, we practically bumped into the guy.

Okay... Just a teaser. I'll keep Summer's fans posted as to the progress of this upcoming episode. I'm kinda excited about it myself.


  1. Loved the teaser from last nights reading. So excited you are going to throw in another book! I love it. Oh, I let my sister borrow your book and she's grooving on it too. Which reminds me, i need to order a book from you at the next Smash meeting.

  2. Woooo! Cool. I'm glad you're doing this. And I still think you need to write one called "Murder with a Schmear."

  3. So glad you're adding another book to the series. I would have been very sad to see it all come to an end. I sooo love the characters! Can't wait to read it :)
