A Published EBook: Let the Social Media Begin!

This weekend, I published Malice & Murder and I cannot force the smile from my face. Lots of hard work made this happen. But this was not a solitary venture. I am an artist and artists, for the most part, are solitary animals. When I began to write again, it was in that artist mode: the …

UK Policing Organization

As I continue to refine and edit Malice & Murder (working title The Whisper), I found myself faced with a dilemma.

I Love Paris…

Paris was one of my favourite cities that we visited during a whirlwind European tour. Don’t get me wrong, every city had its charm and beauty. Vienna was resplendent, Florence unforgettable and Venice – a virtual feast for the eyes! London, Bath and York are magnificent, but when I chose to take my story to …

A Debate Over Language …

The PUPPET, the fourth book of the Spy Series is now uploaded and active on Smashwords, and I’m formatting Book Three, BACKLASH for Amazon. Originally, the title was “Le Marionette”, which is puppet in French.  Since it takes place in Paris, my reasoning was that it was logical to give it the French name, just …
