Research






I love research.


Playing outside of my daily life is one of the coolest things about writing a murder mystery.

Now I understand why people like bikes--the syncopated rhythm vibrating up your spine, the wild flying roar washing over you and tugging at your back.

You see
the land 360, no frame. Time and space surround the bike like a bubble, as if the ride is the only reality. Vignettes burn a fast brain-path, gone before the second look.

My protagonist takes more than one ride...I'm thinking maybe I should too.

A tough job but someone's gotta do it.

Is that really YOU in the photo, Kathleen?
That is some machine you are sitting on!
Now, I am MORE interested in your book!

There is something in the writing of this and the "Rush Hour" post that feels like you have your sharp writing hat (or should I say helmet?) on. Feels like your book is accelerating. I love this voice.
