Almost the end of July. Time is flying by so fast that before long that dreaded winter will be back. School starts next week, but once again I won't miss going in there. It is nice to be retired.

Wish I had a place in a warm climate to hibernate to in the coldest months.
At least, I don’t have to go out unless I really want to, except to clear the walk way out front.


I have been working outside in the yard quite a bit this summer and still have some more to do. The writing has been put on hold while I try to get all the things done that I want to get done before that cold weather shows up.

Did you get your free copy of The Handbook of the Writer Secret Society ? If not, then you can still get one.

I am a little upset that no one came back and left a message about how they like the book. It is really easy to leave a comment on this Blog. All you need to do is go down and click on the word Comments, then fill in the needed info and your comment.  None of the info is used by anyone else, such as ads. It is only there so I know who commented and can reply to them if an answer is needed.

All my eBooks are still 99 cents on all reading formats. Links are on my webpage for you to click on for Amazon or other places.


The bestselling one is She Rises at Dawn.

The affluent northwest side of Chicago rarely has problems where a Private Investigator would be seen running around the neighborhoods. However, Patricia (Pat) Michaels was hired by a rich Chicago Stock Market Trader to find his missing wife.

The mystery really heats up when Michaels believes she see the wife, but can never catch up with her. On several occasions, and in the different places she looks, there is always a woman that looks like Stacie Herr leaving in a hurry. Michaels is not able to stop her and begins to question whether the wife is really missing or just having an affair.

Put on your thinking cap and figure it out before her.

She Rises at Dawn

Summary of my novel.

Thrust into the unwanted leadership of the president's secret unit, Hawks must lead his agency while worrying about the female agent with whom he's fallen in love.
Espionage-Terrorism Bureau (ETB)is located in Washington, D.C. and under the direct control of the President of the United States. It has approximately twelve-hundred agents stationed throughout the world. 

The action begins with Japanese Red Army terrorist kidnaping a professor's daughter thinking she belongs to the man they are after.  Steve Hawks (POV), a Field Director of E.T.B., pays the ransom and is told where the young woman is and that a surprise may await him.  He finds the young woman sitting on thirty sticks of dynamite.  After successfully freeing her from the danger, he escorts her home and discovers during an interview that her assailants were on their way to Washington, D.C.
 The terrorists then attack one of the Capitol buildings.  Hawks and his men kill all the terrorists in order to save the hostages.  It is here that Senator Patrick's name first comes up, but the mystery of why they were looking for him is left unanswered.
Hawks is appointed by the president to take over ETB, when the director retires.  He is not happy with the appointment, but accepts the position under the condition that he is allowed to personally conduct investigations.
Hawks first investigation as Director of Espionage, Terrorist Bureau deals with an international gun smuggling ring involving military personnel and aircraft.  Weapons are being shipped to Japan for resale to terrorists’ groups in the Far East.  A sting operation is developed with Sadie MacKenzie, a Field Director, as the bait.  At the completion of the investigation, it is believed that all of the ring members were arrested (it is not until later we find out that the true ring leader was never discovered).  Also during this investigation, Hawks' love blossoms for Sadie.
 After their wedding at the White house, the president gives them a wedding gift of two weeks in Sweden.  It is on their honeymoon in Sweden that Sadie Hawks is kidnapped.  Hawks believes that a terrorist group is responsible.  He is finally contacted and told that if he wants his wife back, a trade between her and Taylor, an individual whom Hawks arrested for espionage, will take place in Washington.
Hawks returns home to arrange the trade.  While walking down the street he notices a car passing slowly by with Sadie in the back seat.  When he attempts to rescue his wife from the car, he is shot by a kidnapper.
After his release from the hospital, Hawks makes the final arrangements for the release of Taylor.  It is at this time, the president calls with a new investigation for him.  It seems a senator's son is involved in a murder and the president wants him to handle it personally.

I am glad February is over. It ended with me falling last week and hurting my leg really bad. But, hopefully, it will get better or I will need to go to a specialist. If anyone knows a good bone doctor in Northwest Indiana, please leave a message below.

I have decided not to publish my series as an eBook at this time. I want to try and get an Agent and have a publishing company buy it. If this doesn't work, then I will go the eBook route.

Book Two is written and needs edited, so my work is cut out for me. Can't wait for the warmer weather to stay, I am really tired of winter.
