The last post for 2022.
three-week break, I’m glad to be back with you wonderful visitors

nor too much about 2023 other than wishing you only happy things in the future.

I’ve had the
good fortune of publishing two novellas this year, Father
& Shattered Dreams, as well as my newest
novel, Code name: Iron Spear 1941. I also
participated in an anthology – Winter Paths -
with eight other authors. The response to my stories has been overwhelming and
I am so thankful to my faithful readers and new readers who take a
chance on my stories.
For more info, please go here –
Winter Paths. An anthology.
There are so many people I need to
thank, and I probably missed a few but I appreciate every share, every comment,
every purchase of my books.

What’s coming for 2023!
The Alexanders. Vol 2. 1921
I am working on the first draft of I
hope to have it ready for summer 2023.
The Roaring Twenties. Flappers and
Speakeasys. The good years before the Depression.
Dominic Alexander watches his
business grow, itches to be a father but fate works against him and Maria, his
wife. In his adventures, he will encounter enemies, questionable friendships.
There will be good times and sad times. Dealing with a criminal element trying
to disrupt his business. Issues arise which people aren’t prepared to deal with
in the twenties.
Shattered Series with Jo
I am almost finished the fourth
installment in the Shattered Series. Not sure what the title will be yet but
I’m leaning towards Shattered Hope. The story takes place in New Zealand. Jo is
nicely settled in and avoiding all possible trouble spots, but…
When a new friend explains how her
sister might be in trouble, Jo can’t stop herself from getting involved. A
young man from Canada is missing and assumed dead. Jo’s not alone this time
either. The parents of the boy missing have asked a good friend to intervene.
Drake Alexander and Jo Naylor make a formidable team. What they uncover is one
of the worst crimes possible.
I’m planning my short story for the
next Anthology with the Seasonal Collective which is targeted for November
2023. We will have two new members joining the Collective – Gianetta Murray of Great Britain and Eden Monroe of New Brunswick.
Planned for the future:
Fifth and final installment for the
A novel based on my short story, One
Bedroom Ark. Go HERE.
The next Drake Alexander Adventure
which will take him and his team to Africa.
Other than that, I'd like to go on a trip somewhere with my best friend, Gloria. Maybe Spain.
I’d like to volunteer but can’t decide.
I’m giving myself until the end of January to make a commitment.
Do you volunteer anywhere? I’d love
to hear about what you do and/or some suggestions.
Thank you again all you
valuable readers and visitors. May you only have happy things happen in 2023.
