The to-do list here at the Cue Ball Mysteries is always full to overflowing. Jessie and Wilson asked for a short break from any new adventures after all the hullaballoo they encountered in Four Play. But I, their intrepid creator, remain busy. Here’s what’s happening:
I have been working with super-duper narrator Caroline Miller to get all four of the Cue Ball Mysteries available on audio. Whew! What a project it was! Caroline is our “voice of Jessie,” and boy is she good! Just wait ‘til you hear. Of course she’s great at narrating Jessie’s every word and thought, but I’m also partial to Caroline’s interpretation of Candy Poppe, Geez Louise Urko, and Jimmy Beak. How all these people reside in that woman’s head is beyond me. But, come to think of it, they’re up there crowding around in my brain, too.
And while Caroline narrates, and Jessie and Wilson frolic in the sun somewhere, I’m busy starting a brand new series. The CASSIE BAXTER MYSTERIES are proving just as much fun as the Cue Balls. And I hope to have Cassie’s first adventure, UNBELIEVABLE, available sometime this summer. You’ll just love the setting of this series, Lake Elizabeth, Vermont. Lake Bess, as Elizabethans like to call their town, boasts a population of 600 people, any number of dogs and cats, lots and lots of ducks, and two goats that will win your heart. Stay tuned!
Wouldn’t you know it. Jessie just phoned home to announce she, too, is ready to take up some new sleuthing whenever the mood strikes me to start her fifth book, FIVE SPOT. I told Jessie to go frolic some more. The fifth Cue Ball Mystery will be in the works by Fall 2014. Yep, we plan ahead around here!
Thanks for stopping by, and please check out my blog, my books, and anything else that catches your attention while you’re visiting the Cue Ball Mysteries.
