“Artie and the Brown-Eyed Woman” is published and available at all the usual places, and many unusual places, and even places I’ve never heard of before. Yes, about 70 different outlets will give you the ability to buy the short story, for 99 cents and less in some cases. You can put it on your Apple device, read it on your Kindle or Nook, put a PDF version on your PC or laptop. Great to have available when you have to wait in line or at the doctor’s office. Not deep or dark, but a lighthearted story about a guy who always seems to be lead astray by a beautiful woman, but somehow comes out unscathed. Well, almost unscathed. And if you like this one, there are three more to enjoy. Check out at least one. Artie even has some reviews here and there. If you like one, you’ll probably like them all. Click on the cover to your right and read all about it!
Back in her hometown of Newport, RI, Tina Shaw, twenty-nine, is picking up the pieces of her shattered life. She begins her first job as a professional organizer in a house filled with cardboard boxes and clutter, only to discover a dead body in an eerily neat baby nursery. She fears this career move may be a short one until the handsome but spooky new doctor persuades her to reorganize his office left in disarray by the former physician.
Ignoring the doctor’s obvious interest in her, Tina begins seeing her former boyfriend. When he protests against her new profession, she… Continue reading
This is my introductory post about my blog. If you remember reading this, just scroll down to see what I’ve written since.
Do you like my newsboy hat? You’ll see it whenever I want to announce something . . . new. Right now, I want to say hello, and welcome to my blog.
You probably realize I like hats. I figured out that using them here is a quick and easy way for visitors to know at a glance what I’m going to talk about. I had a hard time finding a hat for organization, then saw the little image with an organized closet with, yes, hats in it. The rest are, I hope, easy to figure out. The only question may be about the gray fedora which I’ll use to talk about writing in general. Since I write both light and dark mysteries, and some people only read one or the other, I have the white and black fedoras to indicate which is which.
You may be wondering what I’m going to talk about here. I have three major passions (not including my family and friends–they’re in a class by themselves)–writing, travel and the organization of time and space. I figure that’s a little much to cover in one blog, so I’m going to stick with organization and writing. One reason for that is I’ve written a mystery novel about a professional organizer I hope to publish by the end of summer and am working on a non-fiction book about the subject, as well. I expect to do a series about the professional organizer, so it makes sense to combine the two subjects on my blog.
The plan here is to start with a two-day-a-week schedule with Mondays being Organizer Day, and Fridays Writing Day. Please check in often, or even sign-up for email notifications about updates. I look forward to many comments and any suggestions you have about subject matter.
Welcome to my new blog!
