Hello and welcome back,
I’m settling into life in Connecticut after so many years in California, and I couldn’t have picked a better time. As we head into summer, the trees and flowers are in bloom and there’s very little sign of the brutal winter that battered the East Coast. This cherry tree at the front of our house made me smile when the pink flowers popped out.
In book news, I’m eagerly awaiting the publication of my spinoff to Princess Charming. For those who haven’t heard the news, I’ve brought back Elaine, Jackie and Pat - the three best friends who take vacations together every year despite their tangled love lives - and given them a brand new adventure. Instead of solving a murder and finding romance on a seven-day Caribbean cruise as they did in Princess Charming, they’re off to a posh hotel on a farm in Connecticut this time around - agritourists on a haycation. They milk a cow, make cheese, forage for wild edibles and take cooking classes from a famous chef, only to find that one of their classmates is determined to kill the chef before the week is out. The novel will be the first in my planned “Three Blonde Mice” series that will feature the three women on different trips solving a mystery and navigating matters of the heart. My agent has sent the manuscript to publishers and I’m crossing my fingers that they have as much fun reading the book as I had researching and writing it.
Meanwhile, I’m plotting the next installment in the series. I’ve already got three more settings/locales in mind, but if anyone has a place they’d like to see the Three Blonde Mice travel to, let me know.
My caregiver book, You’d Better Not Die or I’ll Kill You, continues to generate reader responses. Hardly a day goes by that someone doesn’t say, “I just bought that book for my mom, who’s caring for my dad,” or “My friend needs this book because she’s caring for both her parents.” Watch the video for more about the book and please do contact my speakers bureau, Speakers On Healthcare, if you’d like me to speak to your group or organization.
Till next time,
