Apparently, I’ve not been gifted with the ability to write regular interesting blog posts while also composing a novel. For this reason, I will be taking a break from this blog. I may occasionally alert you to new books from other authors, but I myself will
not be posting regularly to this page.
However, before I disappear from this stage, I want to let you in on the story idea for my new book. Years ago, I read an article in the Houston Chronicle about an elderly woman who showed up at a care facility with only her pocketbook and a jacket. She was alert and very pleasant but refused to give any information about her background or family.
The situation set my writer’s mind a-whirling, wondering who she was, why she was there, how did she get there, why she wouldn’t speak of her background or family, etc, etc. The account stuck with me and now I’m working on developing a story about a 73 yr. old woman who was a teacher in her younger life, until one day she took her class on a field trip to a large museum and one of the students disappeared and was never found. Now, thirty years later as the case is about to be solved, her husband is killed and her house burns to the ground. She escapes to hide out in an out-of-state care facility until she can figure out who’s trying to silence her.
