Greetings Fellow Mystery Lovers,

Spring—it’s about time! I had a race with January and February to complete my fifth novel, “The Innocent Hour,” which will be released by Black Opal Books on Saturday, October 19, 2019. What better way to invest bitter cold days than by the fire conniving on my Mac.

I’ve managed to confuse people who like to read a series in order. “The Innocent Hour” will be the sequel to my debut novel, “The Dying Hour.” In between these two mysteries is the Trust Series: “A Matter of Trust,” “Redeeming Trust,” and “Vanished.” If you haven’t read “The Dying Hour” yet, you might want to meet the characters before their new adventure launches this fall.

Spring for me means digging up dirt—in my shade gardens, that is—while plotting murder and mayhem. From my third-story office window, I’m watching Mrs. Bluebird build a nest in her box, and a blue jay chasing a hawk, silly bird. A swath of snowdrops is blooming riotously even as the last snow melts.

I’ll give my Mac a rest while meeting readers here in PA, in NY, and NJ and participating in author events throughout the year. I hope you'll stop by--I'd love to see you. Have a glorious Spring! And do drop me a note under "Contact."

Nancy

p.s. Books make great birthday, Mothers/ Fathers Day, graduation and hostess gifts. Happy reading!

Greetings Fellow Mystery Lovers,

Spring, 2017

Who would have thought? Spring, the most beautiful time for my shade garden, a washout. Rather than writing in my restful summer office built by my hero-husband from 100-year-old barn boards, I was stuck inside, watching invigorated weeds choke my perennials. But hat better time to write as deadlines loomed and summer relinquishes its grasp!

This summer, Vanished: A Trust Mystery, Book 3, is in the capable hands of my Black Opal Books editor. Their talented artist has designed a beautiful cover. I’m busting to share, but the release date isn’t until October 27. So far away! But the day will arrive, along with our raking the explosion of leaves this rain encouraged.

In the works: I’m hoping to launch Vanished in NYC, as I did with The Dying Hour. Details will follow. And I’ll be participating in author events in late summer and fall. I’ll keep you posted here and on social media. I hope you’ll stop by—I’d love to see you. All the best!

Nancy
