 Dear Josephine Stuart Mystery fans, now you can read about Josephine in Hollister, a baby raccoon and a trip to Colorado. I'm not giving anything away--you've got to read it to know what's in it!

 Dear friends, I'd like to bring you up to present times and my newest mystery, "Lost & Bound."

This one takes place in Felton, California where a woman falls out of a train on Halloween night. It's a Roaring Camp train and she didn't go willingly. But that's just the beginning. Her brother is missing and her sister has run into some very heavy trouble. Have faith--Josephine will be investigating.

Something new is in the making--an audio version of Lost & Bound. Stay tuned!

The newest books in the Josephine Stuart Mystery Series

Dear friends, I'm so so late doing this (my mind is in quarantine 
and my mental clock has stalled). Enough with the excuses
--here is my newest book, "Dead On A Rifle" published in 2019. 
Most of it takes place in Aptos California--all parts of Aptos--
even some places nobody knows about but me. 
Hope you enjoy the ride!

My next Josephine Stuart mystery, Lost & Bound, is coming out 
sometime this month. I can't wait to see what the cover will look like.

What is your view of America today?
Is it anything close to the America you grew up in?
Do you think it is better or worse than it was ten years ago?
I don't think there is a yes or no answer to any of this.
My feelings bounce from happy to sad and back again.
I love the way we are more open about things like discrimination.
I feel sad that it has turned into a tool used to attack other people.
I love the way we have cleaned up the air and chemical messes.
I feel sad when people are told that the planet will burn up in their lifetime.
I feel proud when I see beautiful buildings, bridges and statues.
I want to cry when fellow Americans burn them down.
I feel secure when I see police doing their difficult jobs.
I feel sad when our wonderful police force is abused.
My heart skips a beat when I see the American flag.
And I gag on my tears when I see it disgraced and ignored.
I will always vote for what makes me happy and proud.
