A Writer's Life: A Setting Surprise

With my current thriller manuscript ("Claim Denied") in the hands of beta readers, I had time to think about writing another book: a sequel, a thriller set in a small town with fascinating, quirky characters.

When I looked back at a community on the Eastern Shore of Virginia I visited a few times in early 2000, I came upon a startling, sweet surprise! I dug deeper! It was clear: I had to write this novel! 

I joined J. Thorn's 5-day challenge using his "Three Story Method", outlined the entire story, and uploaded the details in Plottr. I can access it at any time and get cracking!

I'll do exactly that as soon as "Claim Denied" is published. Publication release is January 2021. Story and Song Neighborhood Bookstore on Amelia Island, FL has agreed to a book launch.  Please email me at to receive publication information and an invitation to the book launch.

Thank you for listening!  Please leave a comment and a rating.

Music for this podcast was provided by Rafael Javadov ("The Amelia Island Sun"), Ilya Truhanov ("Russian Soap Opera"), and Setuniman (violin sounds).
