Sorry to be absent lately. Demands of the day job have nearly wiped out my creative energies to finish writing my new novel, so blogging about writing is not high on the to-do list.

However, I am making progress, and will be announcing a cover reveal soon. I will have a better handle on the release date for "Pilate's Blood" in a few more weeks.

Thanks for your patience, and stay tuned. Read more of this blog post »

“The real core of this book is about the open secrets that can fester in a community until an outsider raises questions.”
J. Alexander Greenwood, Pilate's Cross

“I really enjoyed hearing the likesand dislikesof my readers at book clubs as well as meeting new fans at the book signing at The Bookworm in Omaha " he said. "The book clubs have overwhelmingly asked me to hurry up on writing the sequel.”
J. Alexander Greenwood, Pilate's Cross

“The professor’s motive was in the grand scheme of things terribly petty ” Greenwood said. “"Pilate’s Cross" is inspired by the questions this terrible crime created but as a work of fiction it is set in a different place and time and has a more complex motive for the murders.”

Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
