Chapter 29 of Prophecies and Penalties

It's that kind of day for Emily, again

It’s that kind of day for Emily, again

After her encounter by moonlight with the spooky Stacia Fletcher, Emily Fisher faces the light of day with new enthusiasm and plans for tracking down Stephen Nash’s killer. She’s going to need that enthusiasm. It’s not just that she’ll have to lie, face death, and be taken for a demon. No, Emily’s real problem is that she must go among “The damned and the demented” in chapter 29 of Prophecies and Penalties, my serial about a murder on a Vermont religious commune.

I enjoy history because it helps me understand people. I'm writing fiction for much the same reason.

    Brilliant: Ophelia by John Everett Millais, that’s my favourite of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood – probably because it reminds me of the stretch of river where I learned to swim when I was little more than a toddler – I toddled in and had to swim!

      I’m more a fan of the eventual husband of “Ophelia,” Dante Gabriel Rossetti, myself. “Ecce Ancilla Domini” caught my eye the first time I saw a picture of the picture.
