I’m currently working on a novelette (I’m hoping to bring it in at less than 200 pages) called Evelyn Marsh, in the spirit of Patricia Highsmith. It’s only a mystery in the sense that the rest of the book exists to explain the implication embedded in the first line: “Evelyn’s first murder was an accident.”

Evelyn Marsh is a character study. I don’t know if it will appeal to readers of my other books, but I’m enjoying my time with Evelyn. She’s an interesting lady. She’s a mild mannered artist, mother and wife. Some think she’s too timid. But don’t underestimate her. As the author, I might say I’m just getting to know her and what makes her tick. You’ll meet her for yourself next fall, if not sooner.
