Weather's Not Always a No, No.

Reviews Are Important

Some times readers don't understand how much their opinion means to a writer. A review is only one person's opinion. But reviews can help get a book noticed. And they don't have to be long. Just a few sentences to say what you think of the story and the way the writer handled it. I appreciate the time a reader takes to review one of my books. The Bartered Body is brand new and only has two reviews so far. But they're both excellent. Have a look: …

First Review

A review is one person's opinion. But most writers bite their nails in anticipation of such feedback on their work.

Who Heisted The Body?

Why would thieves steal the body of a dead woman?

That’s the most challenging question yet to be faced by Sylvester Tilghman, the third of his family to serve as sheriff of Arahpot, Jordan County, Pennsylvania, in the waning days of the 19th century.

And it’s not just any body but that of Mrs. Arbuckle, Nathan Zimmerman’s late mother-in-law. Zimmerman is burgess of Arahpot and Tilghman’s boss, which puts more than a little pressure on the sheriff to solve the crime…
