Ripped from Today’s Headlines

When I wrote Mind in Chains in 2019, I didn’t think I would be using this headline to introduce the book in June 2024. Themes generally become stale over time. But the tug of war between science and religion, drawn into focus by the COVID pandemic and abetted by politics and court decisions, makes it as relevant today as it was five years ago. 

And for the month of June, you can enjoy a fictional account of this battle for just 99 cents!


The healthcare-for-all debate in the US erupts in a series of deadly attacks on the medical community, and soon, Doc Price and Nicole Veles find themselves the next intended victims. Doc finds an unlikely ally in FBI Special Agent Rebecca Marte. Together, they try to make sense of the Crusaders’ actions that defy all logic; the terrorists show no fear of identification—or even death. In the end, Doc risks everything he loves in a final, deadly gambit with the Crusaders, only to find that the cost of his ploy may be more than he can pay.

I'm Back

As Jack Nicholson said in The Shining. (Hopefully, that doesn't give you the chills like the movie did for me.)

I took a break from my website, but that doesn't mean I wasn't writing. I have an outline of book 8 in the Mind Sleuth series and have started a first draft. And if experience is any guide, you can look for it's release in about a year. But as of today, I don't even have a working title, so much more on the next installment in the series later.

We continued to explore our new home in Colorado, this time enjoying a trip to the Garden of the Gods, a designated National Natural Landmark in Colorado Springs. This photo shows a pair of red sandstone hoodoos in the Garden known as the Siamese Twins.

If you get close, the window they create frames Pikes Peak (14,115 feet) in the distance.

If you're ever in the area, I recommend a visit.

Lost in a Cozy

Want to escape from the economy, politics, March Madness (which, strangely, goes into April)? 

Then my advice is to get lost in a cozy. And no better place than In the Mind of a Spy, where  the sex and violence are all off-stage and Jesse Bolger's lament when he nearly gets trapped in a backyard with a privacy fence - "Well, aren’t I just one helluva secret agent?” - is as bad as the language gets.
