The first draft of "Ice on the Bay" was written in about that time frame, but the editing has taken a full year because my editor-wife Kathleen was assaulted by a combination of too much other work and too many health problems. Also, she's my co-author for this book, having written a lot of the material dealing with Detective Sergeant Corina Montufar's struggles with her religious life. So in a way, the writing actually took something like a year and a half to two years, but it's a lot better for the extra time we put into it.(less)

I honestly don't remember what sparked the idea; I think it just popped into my head one day for no apparent reason. It took about two years for that basic idea to find a story, though.

The sequel, "True Death," currently being written, had its seeds in the first book. Since it would be a bit of a spoiler, I'm not saying right now what it is, but if you read "The Fibonacci Murders" you will (possibly without knowing it) run across the genesis of "True Death."

The SF/humor novel I have in progress began as a play on words. I was thinking I'd like to try my hand at some SF again. I used to write almost nothing but; I haven't written any for a long time. The question was: SF of what sort? While rummaging through the history of the genre, I recalled the old category of space opera. A title sprang to mind based on that: "Space Operatic." From there, it became a tale of a hapless opera company trying to make a living traveling to various outposts scattered on the fringes of our solar system.(less)
