Something About Me and My Book:
About My Book: My new suspense novel, CROSSHAIRS, is set in the wilderness areas of north-central Pennsylvania where I lived for a number of years. It is basically a story about revenge but it has as many twists and turns as the mountainous roads of its setting, the fictional Klinkton County. It is a land where scope-mounted hunting rifles are as plentiful as trees and shooting accidents are as common as timber rattlesnakes. ***** Life in Klinkton County has always revolved around deer hunting, trout fishing, four-wheel-drive pickups, and the Grizzly Snowmobile factory. But this year something new has been added -- Klinkton County's first serial killer. ***** The victims include a kerosene route salesman from Allentown, a political organizer from Philadelphia, and a local arts and crafts worker. The person who must stop this killer is newly-elected Sheriff Jesse Eichenlaub. ***** In addition to secret demons from his own past, Jesse already has three strikes against him. He doesn't like guns; he has no law enforcement experience at all; and the man he defeated in the election is now his boss! ***** The central questions that Sheriff Jessie immediately faces are -- who is the shooter? What connects the victims? And how will he cope with the expanding chaos that suddenly surrounds him?

About Me: I was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and grew up in the eastern part of the state. I graduated from Temple University with a degree in psychology and I have been writing most of my life. I started with long homesick letters when I was in the Air Force and later took a course in short story writing at Temple. After that, I was hooked on writing. ***** I've worked in a variety of genres and was also a publications specialist for a number of years with a local government. I've done press releases, audio/visual scripts, technical reports, speeches, newspaper and magazine articles, and a variety of public relations materials. I've also written a biography for young adults and several romantic suspense novels but CROSSHAIRS is my first published novel. ***** My wife Lee and I have been living in Sarasota, Florida, for over thirty years.

I miss the beauty of PA, too. I was luckly enough to go back for two book signings, that's when I realized how much I missed it there. Great to know you! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Russ, I am familiar with the Ft Wash, Pa area the best. It seems more urban than the area where you write about. I hope the marketing goes well. I have three books published so I know how you feel. My non-fiction one, Cultur Smart Turkey, is on Barnes and Noble and Amazon. Keep up the great work! I write as a columnist for Today s Zaman an English national and international newspaper printed in Turkey and on the web. You can read one of my articles if you go to: Hope you enjoy and are encouraged if you read it.

Congratulations, Helen, on the B & N signing! That's great! B & N can be pretty choosey sometiems when it comes to signings so consider yourself fortunate. Sure, let me know when and where and I'll see what I can do. Hope you can conjure up some publicity before the signing and then sell lots of copies!

Hi Russ -- I know what your saying about all the paper
work. It is all worth it. This is only a one time deal.
All you have to do from now on is a short synopsis on
each short you submit.
I truly love writing poetry. I have just been told I will
be able to do a book signing at my local Barnes&Noble so I am excited.

I don't have the date yet, but it will probably be in
about three-four weeks. I'll let you know if your

Keep writing.
