It was an outlet for my emotions at the time, good and bad. Then when I moved to Colorado in the early 80's I wrote three novels, in the Thriller genre, which were never published. That was my first foray into writing a novel. Later I wrote my first short story "The Case of the Missing Bubble Gum Card" which I later updated and was my first indie published work last year. I really liked my PI character Jarvis Mann and wrote "Tracking A Shadow" and I'm hopefully slowly building a following. The follow-up "Twice As Fatal" should be out towards the end of May. Thanks for reaching out!(less)

With the virus still in the news and with the Safer at Home rules here in Colorado, I’ve been spending much of my spare time when not writing, working around the house. Much of this has been taking place outside. Those who are new to the newsletter may not know my wife Kim and I moved to a new home in August of last year. The first move we’ve done in 22 years.

Hello Sophia,
If you are interested you can check out my books, even if they aren't what you normally read. The first short story, The Case of the Missing Bubble Gum Card is free on Amazon. And if you sign-up for my newsletter I will send you a free ebook for the first novel in the series Tracking A Shadow. That way you can try them out for free and see if you want to continue the series. There are currently 7 books in all. Thanks so much and have a wonderful evening.

~Sophia~ Hello! Thank you so much for the friend request. Mystery and crime aren't my typical genres, but I am really excited to try out some new books. Best wishes! :)


message 9: by R.

R. Weir Nothing wrong with that. Do you have Tracking A Shadow the book before it? If not I'd be happy to send you a paperback of it. I'll even sign it for you. Just let me know. Thanks again.


message 8: by Deb

Deb Rhodes I got it in paperback from Amazon. I don't really care for ebooks, guess I'm too old-fashioned.


message 7: by R.

R. Weir Wow thank you. Not many buy physical books anymore. Where did you buy it from?


message 6: by Deb

Deb Rhodes I'll be sure to let you know. I ordered it in paperback; I think it will be arriving in about a week.


message 5: by R.

R. Weir Thanks Deb. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it.


message 4: by Deb

Deb Rhodes I've finally ordered a copy of your latest book. I've been wanting to do that ever since I first heard about it. I do so love a good mystery!


Michael Murphy Thanks for connecting on Goodreads. Best of success with your writing. Hope you'll add my Prohibition-era mystery, The Yankee Club, to your to read list. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
