The book's called The Chef, The Inspector, and The Ghost of Bartholomew Addison Jenkins. It should be out for your Halloween enjoyment. It's set in 1982, and its main character is a woman chef. Two ghosts, all sorts of silliness, a good dose of spice, and some characters I really enjoyed getting to know. All in the early MTV era in a pretty town somewhere near Athens, NY. It'll probably be a stand-alone book, but I left a little something open at the very end so that I could do a series if there's interest. We shall see!
Being just a bit naughty in print is a new experience for me. Generally, it's been a relief to NOT cut to waves crashing on the beach. I'm deeply proud of my naughtiness!
In the G-rated part of my writing life, I finally finished the revisions on What Time Is It There? The Bean Books, Book 3. Bean is 19, in her sophomore year of college--and she's lost track of Zak, except through her ability to travel in time. The book contains the most epic paranormal scene I've written yet, a really fun Thanksgiving scene, and some sweet stuff around Christmas. It really is a Christmas story--deeply peculiar Christmas miracle and all. I'm super-pleased with it, and you'll be hearing about that soon, too.
Phew! Two novels in a year. For us ink-stained wretches on the romance end of things, I understand that's just called Tuesday. Or in this case, Thursday.
Happy Thursday, everyone! And if you need any of my books...click here!
