First beta-readers have completed reading the sequel to Killer Within. It's always a bit nerve-wracking, like sending your kid on the bus for their first day of school. You just hope you've done the work necessary so they can do OK without you -- or at least not pee their pants and hoard all the crayons during coloring time. Talking to other writers, I hear that the nerves never goes away when you get those first reads. And I think that's a good thing. Without the nerves, it might be too easy to get lazy and just dial it in instead of agonizing over each plot point the way I do now. Thankfully, the reports from readers have been great, although I did get a few "what's wrong with you?" comments regarding some of the content. We're dealing with serial killers after all, not the nicest people in the world. Look forward to sharing it in the coming months. ... See MoreSee Less

Received the new paperback version of Killer Within from my publisher Thomas & Mercer on my doorstep yesterday! I'm very excited about the new edition (release date February 17th!) and can't wait to share it with everyone. The editorial process with the team at T&M did great things for the story and for Allison McNeil as a character. I'll need your help on launch day, so mark those calendars! ... See MoreSee Less

Excited to be in this month's Writers Digest magazine! I asked to be on the cover. Maybe next time. ... See MoreSee Less

FIRST DRAFT DONE -- Many early mornings later, just finished the first draft of Killer Within 2 (title pending). I've written chapters of this book sitting on the sand in the Cayman Islands, on rooftop terraces in San Diego, at my favorite table at City Dock Cafe, at a desk overlooking Times Square in NYC, at the haunted Driskill Hotel in Austin, at the Aerie Bed and Breakfast...and I finished it sitting in Panera's with my 12 yo reading and my 14 yo next door taking guitar lessons! For the next seven days, I won't look at it while it "bakes". For those seven days, it's the best thing I've ever written. And then I tear it apart, wonder how I could have ever written such a pos, and put it all back together again. But for tonight (and for a celebratory dinner tomorrow night with the family) I AM DONE. ... See MoreSee Less

30 min into a cross-country flight, only a few chapters from finishing the second Allison McNeil novel, and discovered my computer cord wasn't attached properly last night. No battery. Fortunately, there have been all kinds of good books written with paper and ink. Think I'll give that a try. ... See MoreSee Less
