Wow, that is a very hard question to answer. It seems I can't stop writing series, old and new. There's LeGarde Mysteries (10 books), Moore Mysteries (3 books), Tall Pines Mysteries (4 books), and now Bittersweet Hollow (2 books) and my Cape Cod Mysteries (one book and another coming). I didn't intent to make the last two series, but people seemed to really love the characters and wanted to know more about them, so I caved and wrote second books in both. Now I'm thinking I'm behind on my other series! I want to write at least one more "young Gus" book to follow Don't Let the Wind Catch You, at least a few more Sam Moore Mysteries, and at least one more Tall Pines book. Plus I always love to try new characters and genres, so who knows what's going to pop into my brain and beg to be written?! (less)

I couldn't imagine how a woman would survive such a trial. It kept eating away at me until I wrote my own testimonial to those brave souls. (less)

Hot off the press - a new boxed set with Devil's Lake (#1), Devil's Creek (#2), and Devil's Spring (#3).   You can save several dollars with this combined set of the first three books in the series. Book 1 is free for now anyway, but books two and three cost $3.99 normally. With this set, you get all three together for $5.99. What a deal! ;o)

Tremolo: cry of the loon (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: Summer, 1964: Beatlemania hits the States, and the world mourns the loss of JFK. For eleven-year-old Gus LeGarde, the powerful events that rocked the nation serve as a backdrop for the most challenging summer of his life. After Gus and his best friends capsize their boat at his grandparents’ lakeside camp, they witness a drunk chasing a girl through the foggy Maine woods. She’s scared. She’s hurt. And she disappears. The camp is thrown into turmoil as the frantic search for Sharon begins. Reports of stolen relics arise, including a church bell cast by Paul Revere. When Gus and his friends stumble on a scepter that may be part of the spoils, they become targets for the evil lurking around the lake. Will they find Sharon before the villain does? And how can Gus–armed only with a big heart, a motorboat, and a nosy beagle–survive the menacing attacks on his life?
Welcome from Gus LeGarde (Mystery & Thrillers)
