Just finished and submitted to my editor the final version of “Murder on the Horizon,” the latest installment in the Gracie Kinkaid Search and Rescue mystery series. Still have some changes due from the copy editor and proofreader, but for all intents and purposes, it’s finished! Whew!!
Look for it in bookstores on August 4, 2015. Available now for presale in both softcover and Kindle and Nook versions at http://www.amazon.com and http://www.barnesandnoble.com.

Why does it seem that here in the U.S. the issue of climate change is a partisan thing, a ‘them vs. us’ thing, to some still invalid, unproven, unscientific.
Arguably 97% of the world’s scientists say it’s real, valid, scientifically proven.
If you’re not yet believing that climate change is true and real, please ask yourself which of the 3% of scientists are you believing and why?
Or which politicians and which companies?
Ask yourself why are these politicians and companies denying it and why are you still believing them?
Climate change is real.
It’s a ‘global’ thing.
It’s a ‘people’ thing.
It’s a ‘you ‘n’ me’ thing.
It’s a ‘survival’ thing.

Racism, sexism, and all other forms of discrimination are social constructs born of fear and ignorance. Whatever your belief system, don’t give in to the appeal of extremism.

“Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth,
but by washing away from it all that is not gold.”

From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.”
