Our furbaby, Shaggy. He is a rescue from Moscow.
Hello My Happy People,
Things have been so busy this week. I have finally started getting up and around here and getting back to normal daily activities. P.R. is still shadowing me and making sure I do not over do it (Who? Me?!).
I have been back at work finishing up the seventh and final book in the Into the West Saga Serial, Into the West: Family Ties. I just finished adding in a few chapters this week and have just about reached the halfway point on this book. It is finally flowing like the first books did. I was beginning to worry that would not happen, but thankfully it did. I am hoping to wrap this one up soon so I can focus on other projects we have planned. Later, we will be doing another historical fiction serial in another US territory.
I am also working on my research for the new thriller that is in progress, The Touch. As I started to get more into the actual police procedure descriptions, I realized my education was about 20 years old and decided I needed to check out the things that changed in that time.
I bought a bunch of reference books and am making notes. P.R. even bought me the Crime Classification Manual written by the team who created the Behavioral Science Unit for the FBI. These people developed the science/art of profiling. If this doesn't make my work accurate, nothing will.
