Hi Brooke,

Thank you for the question! Right now, I'm working on the third book in the Julia Gooden series, Blood Blackbird. In this story, Julia has no choice but to team up with her con man father, who abandoned her as a little girl, so she can decipher whether a stranger vowing he's the brother she lost thirty years earlier in a child abduction case is who he claims to be, or if it's a trap to ensure the many sins of her father's past will be paid in full this time. In this book, the missing person's case of Julia's brother is finally solved.

I'm really enjoying writing it, and I'm almost done, but it's crunch time now! My deadline to turn it into my my editor is in three weeks. Last week, my husband and I took our two little boys on a previously scheduled summer vacation, and while my family was at the pool and the beach, I was in the hotel room, huddled in front of my computer, writing. All in all, a good problem to have though!

Keeping my fingers crossed that readers are going to like it. The second book in the Julia Gooden series, Duplicity, comes out in April 2017, and Blood Blackbird should be out sometimes later that year.

Hope you are reading some good books right now!

Even if I'm unhappy with what I've written or I am stuck on a scene or certain chapter, I know I can always go back and revise. In my last manuscript, I skipped ahead and wrote two chapters out of sequence (I had never tried that before), and then went back to work on the section that was causing me a major brain freeze. I usually remind myself that as a former newspaper reporter, I had to fight myself out of any kind of writer's block, otherwise I'd be out of a job pretty quickly.(less)

“I became a reporter because I never found out the ending to my own story. Thirty years after Ben’s abduction, the only answers I could find were for others, the victims, or those they left behind. The crime beat was a natural for me. The people I wrote about were the most fragile, the most broken, and they needed the most answers. I pieced together the frayed strands that had once been their lives, not always happy, but better off than where they ended up. I had to tell their stories. I felt like I owed the victims at least that...Julia Gooden, THE LAST TIME SHE SAW HIM”
