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.
