Greetings From My Laptop!

Hi folks,

I hope everyone is doing well. I thought I’d post a general update on some things I’ve been working on. As you can see, life continues to be both busy and productive.

First of all, I’d like to thank all of you for your support of my two newest series, The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries, and The Whiskey Run Chronicles. I couldn’t be happier with how they’re both doing! (Well, I guess we could always be happier, right?) But to say I’m delighted is an understatement.

Book #9 in the Doggy Inn series, The Case of the Itinerant Ibizan is now available in paperback and you can get it here: http://amzn.to/2t5CYfs

The link will also take you to the e-book version if you prefer that format.

Book #10 in the series, The Case of the Jaded Jack Russell is launching on July 31st and is available for pre-order. Here’s the link for it: http://amzn.to/2tK3B84

Here’s a bit about what you’re in store for in The Case of the Jaded Jack Russell

Suzy and Josie are featured speakers at the Animal Entrepreneurs Expo in Ottawa and having to deal with Joshua Middleton, the CEO of the largest pet store franchise corporation in North America. He’s also someone Josie went to vet school with, and their shared history is anything but good. And when Middleton is found poisoned in a storage room during a cocktail reception attended by several hundred people, the list of suspects quickly begins to grow.

As Suzy attempts to work her way through a complicated web of motives and suspects, she and Josie meet the Jack Russell terrier Middleton has been using as his company’s mascot and brand representative. And as soon as they learn that the dog isn’t being treated well and his spirit is broken, they do everything in their power to figure out a way to take possession of the dog then do everything they can to make sure they don’t have to give him back. But when they learn that the head chef at the hotel they’re staying at is one of Chef Claire’s ex-boyfriends, things take a bizarre turn when it becomes apparent that he is still having a hard time letting her go and just might pose a threat. Further complicating Suzy’s ability to focus on who killed Middleton is a dog toy business opportunity that has the potential to be the biggest thing since Beanie Babies.

Along the way, they’re forced to deal with an odd mix of people including Roxanne, Middleton’s gold-digger fiancée who Josie previously stabbed in the hand over dinner one night, the obnoxious and hard-drinking COO of Middleton’s company who is suspect #1, and a banker who’s been playing a little fast and loose with a lot of the rules. Working with a pair of lovebird Canadian cops, Suzy’s neurons are pushed to the limit before this immensely satisfying installment of this increasingly popular series wraps up.

As you know, The Whiskey Run Chronicles is my new episodic series set in the Thousand Islands during Prohibition and deals with bootlegging on the U.S-Canadian border. It’s a fascinating part of the Thousand Islands history and I’ve done my best to pay homage to the beautiful part of the country I was fortunate to have grown up in. I’ve bundled the first seven episodes into Season 1 and you can get it in both e-book and paperback right here: http://amzn.to/2qbFLFq

And be on the lookout for Season 2 of The Whiskey Run Chronicles. Expect a lot of new challenges and adventures for Milo and the gang as they continue their efforts to give the people what they want and not get caught doing it.
