Publication News

 

And so, a quick update for those of you who have been asking about the progress of my book and when it may be published. (And a sincere thank you for being interested! :) )

Although I’ve been quiet on that front publicly as of late, a lot has been happening behind the scenes. I still can’t go into too much detail, but if all goes well Book One of my series, The Nature Knights, will be published Fall 2015.

I’m bursting to tell you more so as soon as I can start to reveal details, I will! For now, I’d better get back to the writing. There are eight more full length novels in the series, plus a novella – and they won’t write themselves.

One thing’s for sure … I’ll never complain of boredom.

Rare Footage of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

YouTube is kind of like the Klondike River of the late 19th century. Lots of noise about it and plenty of people flocking there hoping to make it rich. For the most part though, what you find is fool’s gold (or maybe just fools). But for all the silly videos posted on YouTube, every now and then there’s a nugget of genuine gold – and the thrill of finding it makes panning through pages of junk worth it.

This video is gold. It’s a rare 1927 video interview with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author or the Sherlock Holmes mysteries among other works. In it he talks about his inspiration for Sherlock and his study of the spirit life – including his belief that it is possible to communicate with the dead.
