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!

I enjoyed showing the good things about middle age with this new character. I'm so glad you enjoy Kerrin's reviews and site! I do, too.

Wonderful! Same here. I trust her opinion. She's very open-minded and fair.

Thank you for the sharing Kerrin! I really love reading her reviews and quite often add the books to my ever growing pile of books to read.

What a lovely piece. I have loved Kerrin’s blog/reviews and have only ‘known’ her online for a short while, but she has been one of the only blog reviewers I check religiously. Your book sounds so much fun, and I’m glad the protagonist is closer to my age and not so young as they usually are . I will somehow see if I can read it in Australia. Thanks for the fab interview!! I love the pics from the catch up with Kerrin’s daughter. The landscape is beautiful.
