TIME TO CELEBRATE!













Today is a day to party!
I’m letting down my hair.
Treating myself to lunch (at a grown up restaurant).
I’m basking in the celebratory cheers of my friends and family.

My fabulous agent, Miriam Kriss, worked her magic and I just sold a THREE-BOOK DEAL TO PENGUIN! To say I’m ecstatic is an understatement.

Doing for the Dead (working title) will be the first book in the mystery series that involves a heroine who works cleaning up crime scenes. Oh and she talks to the dead.

Next week I’ll continue writing book two in the series. Today, I’m grinning like an idiot.

Go ahead. Raise your glass, or water bottle, or coffee cup. Whatever. Please join me in my celebration.
