Sabbatical Year Nearly Complete. What's next?

 Where has the time gone? 2020 is three-quarters done, and won't we all be glad when this year is over?  I know I will be, for several reasons, not the least of which is that I am itchy to begin writing again. 

Trying to  remain positive, I recognize that for all the negatives, 2020 has also had its share of high points. My move to a new state went without a hitch, house renovations went as well as can be expected. I found that I have more applicable skills to the renovation task than I recalled, plus we love our new city. So many new things to see and do. 

As far as writing is concerned, I took off 2020 to focus on the move, shift gears from teaching writing classes and truthfully, to take a break from writing my adventure fiction novels in "The Martin Culver Series" after writing 7 novels. 

I realize now how much miss writing this series, conducting the archaeological research, and discovering what comes next in Martin Culver's ongoing struggle to survive while impacting the endless cycle of stolen artifacts smuggled daily across the globe, perpetuating war and world conflict.

As you read this, I'm gearing up for book 8 in the series, dusting off the keyboard, digging deep into the intense research that goes into every Martin Culver novel. 

A preview you say? I can't do that. But I can tell you that the series moves to the Florida Keys and the Caribbean, with Martin and Sandra Culver back in action together. I can also tell you that the world is a very different place after novel 7 in the series. "The Mystery of The Maltese Venus". Oh, and here is a teaser, the graphic that will be featured on the cover.

The name of the next novel will remain a secret, for now. 

So brush up on your previous reads in "The Martin Culver Series", re-acquaint yourself with the characters you most closely identify with, and get ready. This next novel will grab your attention and have you holding on for the ride of your life. 

Best regards,

Writer's Conference at Hilton Rialto, Melbourne FL

The big day has arrived!

My first Florida Writer's Conference, where I will be selling and signing books, takes place Saturday, June 20, 2020 at the beautiful Hilton Rialto in Melbourne, FL.

Although I attended the AWP Writers Conference in 2018 in Tampa, FL, I attended seminars at that event as a participant, but did not set up a table to sell my books. So this is a pretty big deal! I'm excited, since after many writers conferences and book-signings, this is my first in Florida, the initial focal location of my fiction novels in The Martin Culver Series.

Hosted by Valerie Allen of Authors for Authors of Melbourne, this Writers Conference is the 12th Annual event of its kind where writers will gather to offer their books for sale, to attend seminars, and to network together.

The public has been invited through an effective publicity campaign that was carried by local news outlets.  This will give readers an interesting opportunity to meet writers and have books signed.

If you are in the Space Coast area, please make plans to attend. The address is:

 Hilton Rialto
200 Rialto Place
 Melbourne, FL 32901

A Fellow Action Adventure Novelist Lost

Always a great inspiration and a leader in the genre, the name Clive Cussler will always be identified with action adventure novels, as author, novelist, and mentor.

As most of you know, Mr. Cussler passed from this life on Monday, February 24, 2020. We regret this loss, while celebrating his many contributions to the field of authorship.

Some of you may not know that Mr. Cussler's name often appeared on my Amazon author page under the "Customers Also Bought Items By". This great honor will not be forgotten in my lifetime.

If you have an interest, please check my Amazon page here:

Mr. Cussler, may you rest in peace.
