Due to an unscheduled bout of “writer’s block,” I’ve been somewhat absent for the last few months. Actually, I’ve been focusing on a few other projects and barely had time to tend to my characters and their stories.
Now that spring has sprung for most of us, I took the time to reﬂect about our world and my place in it. I’m blessed with health, and I think this will be a glorious year! So, after rearranging and tightening my daily schedule, I’m back to creating more quirky characters, their shenanigans and self-delusions, and most importantly, their crimes!
Now that my writer’s block has been alleviated, I’m back to working on the ﬁnal installment in my detective trilogy, the Mickey Stanislawsky Mysteries. Books One and Two (Dirty Daniel and Nasty Nathan) have already launched, so check them out. Book Three (Filthy Franklyn) is scheduled for release in Fall, 2021.
I’m also broadening my writing horizons for 2021 by jumping headﬁrst into planning a science ﬁction/fantasy/paranormal series; it may or may not revolve around a mystery. I’m initially planning a trilogy, with the ﬁrst book tentatively titled Daughters of the Inali.
Palomas… a tasty cocktail perfect for springtime! 1 ½ cups silver tequila; 4 ½ cups grapefruit soda; and juice of 6 limes and lime wedges to garnish. Combine tequila, grapefruit soda, and lime juice in a pitcher; stir to combine. Pour over ice-ﬁlled glasses and garnish each with a wedge of lime. [Serves 8]
