Current Projects

While preparing a biography for a planned panel of memoir writers, I realized that I have not kept readers informed of my current works in progress.

Anyone reading my posts are well aware of Murder in a Small Town: The Tragic Death of Stacey Burns. This is my longest running writing project to date and without an arrest, it will continue to be.

Another project in process is a memoir with the central theme being what it was like being the son of a member of the “Greatest Generation” made famous by Tom Brokaw’s book. This story surely approaches the greatest generation from a different perspective. A clue to what I mean is found in the blurb on my novel, A Favor Returned. It reads as follows: “Set between 1940 and 1963, A Favor Returned captures the changing dynamics of families, communities and the country in the post-World War II era as prosperity and confidence bordering on arrogance seemed to envelope the nation.”

My third work in progress, started well before the Stacey Burns story, is a continuation of the story of Detective Parker Havenot and his wife Josie, who are characters in my second novel, Agent for Justice.

So, now you know . . .
