Ironically the Covid issue has actually hindered my writing progress. I've gotten busier with my freelance clients (in my "other" career), probably in part because their regular staffs are in lockdown. And my wife, who is a school teacher, is home now too, creating a lot more distractions (some welcome, some not so much LOL) in what would normally be my writing time. That said, I am trying to get some forward progress in Austin Conrad #4 each day, and I hope I'll be able to pick up my pace. But with the uncertainty I really can't guess at a release date.(less)

An Excerpt from the Next Austin Conrad Thriller!













Hi there thriller fans! As I write this I’m sitting at the kitchen table at my brother- and sister-in-law’s place in Missouri. It’s the day before Thanksgiving, its chilly outside and my wife and SIL are working on meal prep for tomorrow’s feast. After breakfast I’ll go up to the barn with my brother-in-law and work on processing the deer we harvest

Cemetery Road is a very long, lumbering mess of a tale that collapses under its own weight. I love Greg Iles' books and have enjoyed every one of them so far. Even this one wasn't terrible, but it was nowhere near up to the par I've come to expect fr ...more
