The Whispers at Midnight

At midnight, THE WHISPERS, the first in a series of three short stories featuring psychic Eloise Montgomery releases! Next month, THE BURNING GIRL will release, set ten years after The Whispers. And then in January, THE THREE SISTERS will be available, set ten years further still. I didn’t really plan it this way, it’s just how the stories told themselves. I see it as a novella in three parts, a deep dive into a character that has fascinated me for a number of years.

The Story is in the Details

I love getting mail from my readers! Occasionally, I get a question that really makes me think. And when I write the answer, I wonder if other readers or writers might enjoy it, too. Here is an edited version of a letter I received from a retired math teacher turning his attention to writing for the first time at age 70. He was reading Beautiful Lies.

What a blessing to spend time with some of my favorite writers who are also some of my favorite people! Wise, warm, and funny observations, a great crowd, and lots of laughs at The Big Book Club Getaway .  Here I am with John SearlesHank Phillippi Ryan, Tess GerritsenAlafair Burke and David Handler in a group selfie.
