What I'm Writing Now
So what am I writing right now? I’m trying something different—a juvenile mystery. I’m using a character from my published novel, Retirement Homes Are Murder—my protagonist Paul Jacobson’s granddaughter, Jennifer. So Jennifer now is the protagonist in her own juvenile mystery. She is twelve years old and sets up a detective agency at the end of the summer before going into seventh grade. I have been reading juvenile mysteries and adapting my writing to a different audience—eight to twelve year olds. Other recent writing projects have included a geezer-lit thriller titled Reset, with a tag line of “Saving the world between naps,” and a mainstream novel based on the company that was the Enron of the 1980s.
