Book Two and Onward

We’re nearly a third of the way through 2022. Time flies! Hopefully the pandemic will continue to wane so we’re able to safely gather together for events. The year has been an exciting one for me so far. In March my second novel was released! Silent Service is the second installment in the MC McCall series. It was a rough ride, but we got ’er done! And I’ve begun to make notes for book three. MC’s journey will continue.
In other news, another author and good buddy of mine, Jessie Chandler, and I have decided to embark on a new project! Woo hoo! We’re going to co-author a book (who knows maybe more than one!). For those who are intrigued by true crime, especially local true crime, you may be interested in our book. Our endeavor will be a true crime-inspired story. 1970s era crimes. The research for this project has been very exciting and darkly intense. We may have even trespassed—the only witnesses to that possible transgression were a herd of cows. Mooo…I mean, mum, is the word.
The nuts and bolts are scattered in piles that we need to sift through and begin to build the framework. In other words, we’re still in the research/discussion stage of the project. There are boxes of documentation to go through. Digital files from MN Historical Society to read. We’ve done a few interviews, in person and over the phone. Some of the research has been as mundane as a fleet of beige sedans, but there have been fascinating nuggets that sparkle like the tips of sun-drenched Lake Superior waves beckoning us to dive in.
We’re both enamored of all things crime—true or fictional—and the impetus for this project is to delve into how the victims, direct or indirect, of said crimes were affected by the events. We envision that the story won’t be focused so much on “who did the crime” (although that question will certainly be answered—or will it?), but rather how did the commission of the crime change those impacted. What was their life like before – and then after the horrible event? What was the world like in the time of the crime? Who will tell the story? These are a few of the questions begging to be answered.
Stay tuned for updates as we create our game plan.
