In the writing room right now ...

In the writing room right now ... I have taken down the brown "butcher" paper that held ideas, photos, drawings, and my hand-drawn maps and plot outlines for the past five or six books. I've placed all those items into three-ring binders, and cleared the deck for paintings and photographs that involve courage, as I move forward in GHOSTKEEPER, the new novel set in Lyndonville, Vermont. My 1850 Vermont adventure THE LONG SHADOW is under contract with Five Star/Cengage -- I will give you a publication date as soon as I know! Scribbling lots of poems, too. And there's a possible route to publication of the "Vermont Nancy Drew" novel I built on Wattpad (see right-hand column). Yes, I guess I do like multi-tasking! How about you?

And that scene in the library...

[Lower Waterford: the library is the lower building, on the right]
When Molly Ballou goes to the public library in Waterford, Vermont, she's holding on to a bit of stability in her life. Change and threat come close on the heels of that quiet moment in THE DARKNESS UNDER THE WATER.

So check in at today's Waterford book treasury, the Davies Memorial Library (in the "White Village" just off exit 2 from I-93), on Wednesday November 12 at 7 p.m. We'll have a family-friendly reading event, and celebrate the town, the library, and the brand new book. See you there!
