As I began this recently, the sun was shining bright on the sand at Myrtle Beach where we were on a much needed vacation. I feel especially blessed to have the freedom and resources to escape the frozen landscape of New England's winter occasionally and enjoy the sun in warmer climates. I hope this finds you and yours safe and warm.
If you are getting this for the first time after having signed up a long time ago I apologize for the long delay. I continue to work through a backlog of far-past-due signups.

Now, here is what’s UP AND COMING.
RESULTS OF AGENT MEETINGS AT UNICORN WRITERS CONFERENCE ON MARCH 25
I met with six literary agents regarding my new book, Wounded Angels and spent 30 minutes with each agent who had read the first 40 pages of the manuscript. Two agents said they would pass. Three others asked for the entire manuscript and said they would consider representing me after reviewing the changes they suggested for the sample pages and assessing the writing in the remainder of the book. The final agent asked for the rest or the manuscript and said she would absolutely be interested in representing me if the remainder of the manuscript had the same quality as the first 40 pages. She said there is a large market for my kind of book and looked forward to seeing the rest it. That means I need to get moving on finishing the edits. More to come.
THE RADIO INTERVIEW WITH DAVID EWEN WILL OCCUR LATER.
Our interview on March 27 did not occur due to technical difficulties and we agreed to hold off until I have finished the edits on the current book.
THE APRIL STAGED READING OF WOUNDED ANGELS AT UCONN IS ALSO POSTPONED.
The play needs more editing and I need to concentrate on the book, so the reading will occur at a later date. More to come.
AUTHORS TABLE AT THE HARTFORD PUBLIC LIBRARY - SATURDAY, MAY 13, 10:00 AM - 2 PM
I will be the featured author at the Hartford Public Library on Saturday, May 13. I will have a table set up in the library for sales and signing of my books and to answer any questions readers might have about me, my books or any aspect of the writing and publishing profession. Come by and say hello.
SCREENPLAY COLLABORATION WITH DAN BLANCHARD AND CARL GUERRA
I continue to meet with fellow author, Dan Blanchard, and screenwriter, Carl Guerra to discuss collaboration. The goal is to further promote the screenplays for my novel, Amanda's Room and Dan's book, Storm. Carl wrote the screenplays for both our books and we are looking into the possibility of co-promoting them at the same time. More to come.
Here is the latest
I finished the initial rewrites of Wounded Angels per feedback from editor, Bob Zaslow. I am very impressed with his skills and have arranged to continue working with him on the book. In the meantime, I just keep on plugging.
Short and Sweet
That does it for this month. Thank you for spending a while with me. Until next month,
