Over 20 years ago I wanted to write murder mysteries, historical fiction, contemporary mainstream, and romances. I ended up writing and completing a contemporary romance set in Idaho in the 1970s and just recently published it on Amazon for the Kindle. It is on Smashwords for the other readers and can be purchased in paperback on Amazon's createspace.com.

My passion now is to write several murder mysteries set in Alaska, where I lived for 10 years, a self-help bio, a steamier romance (perhaps erotica) and who knows what else I will come up with.

There are a series of 3 of them all about the different fishing seasons that take place there and the murders are either taking place on the water or have something to do with the fisheries. I even have the book cover for the second book and was writing two short stories about eh main characters and how they came to Alaska; have the book covers for those as well. Thank you for asking.(less)

And after reading some very popular blogs like Konrath's and seeing what kind of money was possible, why give 75% of your earnings to a traditional publisher when you can make 70% going indie. Thank you for stopping and asking.(less)

Thank you, too, Peg; love the name as it is my mother's name. My husband is from CO and I lived in Evergreen before I was five yrs old. May be visiting in October to see husband's grandmother and his newly found granddaughter. Much success to you.
