I've been trying to make this pandemic era  as productive as possible--as much for my mental stimulation and emotional health as for progress in my craft. It must be working, because I haven't yet run screaming into the street or offed my nearest and dearest. So I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

Finishing Line Press will be publishing Making Silent Stones Sing, a chapbook of my poems, late this year or early next.

On the Fiction Front:

“Fade to Black,” a short story, has been accepted for the Sisters in Crime Desert Sleuths' So West: Love Kills. The anthology will be released later this year.

Last April, in an effort to make their books available to as many readers as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, Texas Tech University Press released 95 TTUP titles as e-books. This included (at long last)  four of my Frankie MacFarlane titles. All books are priced at $9.95 and available on Kindle, Nook, or on your favorite platform. They also spotlighted one e-book every day for 95 days.

Detailed synopses of my crime novels and nonfiction are included on separate Web pages. For more information lease use the directory at top of the page.

For any of my readers who were wondering what I was doing before I launched the Frankie MacFarlane, Geologist, mystery series, you can check out the following US Geological Survey online publication (URL below):
