What's Next...

I tend to do most of my writing when I go on vacation.  I find that being in different surroundings loosens up the creative side of my brain.  It also helps that when I'm away (doesn't really matter where), I'm free of the usual distractions I have at home.  I can get more done on a two week holiday abroad than in a six month period at home. 

My plan for this current vacation was to dig into Frisky Business - the fourth Sasha Jackson mystery.  But I haven't even opened the file. 

Instead, a brand new idea has come to me!  It's also for a mystery, but I'm not sure I can make it into a Sasha  book.  Obviously, I'd just as soon write Sasha stories, but the concept for this one may mean that it ends up being a stand alone title...  Hmmm... I'm still sorting it out in my brain.

What I can say about the new book idea is the following:
  • I know whodunit
  • I know whydunit
  • I mostly know howdunit
  • I know what the setting is
  • I know what the background or backstory is
  • I know the working title: The Last Word

So, I'll mull it over some more and see if I can figure out how Sasha Jackson can get involved. 
Stay tuned...


  1. I love the fact that you're really thinking about it and not just trying to smoosh a great plot and a great character together for the sake of convenience.

  2. Got your first 2 Sasha books as a Christmas present and I am hooked! I will be keeping an eye out for future books!
