Hi, and welcome

I am excited about the upcoming e-book publication of my novel,  Death is Always a Resident, by Cedar Fort Publishing   We are hoping for a May, 2015 release. It is a “cozy” mystery about a young widow who finally lands her dream job as manager of a health care facility, just in time to lose it.  I hope you will enjoy getting to know the characters and figuring out the mystery.

If you would like to read a short story I have written, please go to  http://www.elsewherelit.org.,   Click on “Fresh Literature,” then click on “Fiction,” and then click on my name.  The story is titled “Wyoming Winter” and it appears in the on-line magazine titled “Elsewhere.”

This is a “family” story and actually happened.  Although I knew my paternal grandparents, I never felt comfortable discussing this tragedy with them, even though I knew the story. Many of my family members found it surprising that I wrote it from my grandfather’s viewpoint instead of my grandmother’s. My grandfather was a gruff man who smoked a pipe and intimidated  many of his grandchildren, while my grandmother was “softer” and more approachable. However, I had always been intrigued by the grandfather I didn’t know and by the humanness in him that I seldom saw, so I wrote it from his viewpoint.

I would be interested in how you, as a reader, see him and your response to this story. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
