Wishing You Well!
Posted Apr 6 2020
With COVID-19 lurking unseen around us, we’re living in a strange and distressing time. Now, more than ever, we must find coping mechanisms to help us deal with the pressures. Some turn to exercise. Some turn to their televisions. Others turn to books. Without the usual social interactions, I’m finding more time to read these days, and I’m gravitating to funny books. Humor is a coping mechanism, which is why I think it’s the perfect pairing with mysteries (and why I include humor in my own stories).
Not only can characters cope with difficult and frustrating situations using humor, but so can we. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms are teeming with hilarious memes addressing the funny side of the situation we’ve found ourselves in, from toilet paper shortages to boredom to getting on each other’s nerves from being cooped up together. I love the creative ways people have found to use humor to relieve their stress, and I hope you’re finding it to be a help, too. Wishing all of you well!

Haha! Our terrier mix and shepherd mix are certainly selective, too. They hear "treat" without fail, but "down" or "no!" don't always register. Raggs is such a cute name!
Reggie certainly looks happy! My own dog, Raggs, has "selective" hearing--and he's not well trained. But. Our dogs are family and we do love them.
Thanks, Barbara! I wish I could write faster, too! My ideas are backing up in my head. : ) I wish my brain had a USB port where I could automatically download the stories from my mind to the page. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book! I'm hard at work on the second one, A Trip with Trouble.
I LOVED getaway with Murder. The second book can't be published soon enough. Can you write any faster? ;-)
Thanks so much, Gerrie! So glad you enjoyed the book, and your kind words put a big smile on my face. The second book in the series, A Trip with Trouble, will release next fall. I'm looking forward to it, too!
