The Editing Room Floor: And Billie’s a Crowd

We’re back, and in celebration of The Libra Gambit’s release, here’s a scene that was cut somewhere during the second draft, after we realized there was no room for another spy on the Moth. Side note: We love Billie, so much we even dream cast her (Lesley-Ann Brandt is a treasure!) and we fully expect to …

Don’t Panic…

…that’s my job. This is a quick update to, first, let everyone know that we’re close to having the youngest offspring moved to college (in three weeks!) and I’ll have more thinking/writing time in September (I may cry a little, first—my baby’s in college!—but writing will happen—both kids are in college!). Also, I wanted to …

Still running up that hill…

… with a shout out to the above graduating class of 2021, who kept on even when the lights went out! It’s been a hitch over two months since I went on hiatus, and in that time, Life has become even more complicated, and that has led to a lengthier break from writing than anyone …
