Five things make a post

1. In just a few weeks, I'll be leaving for The Writer's Police Academy. There is always so much to do there. Should I suit up and learn how to do a building search? Listen to a Secret Service Agent explain how to identify mass shooters - in advance? Solve a sexual assault case? If you are a mystery writer, this is the only conference of its kind, and it is fascinating and intense.

2. From North Carolina, I'll fly into New York City where I will spend a few days seeing the city, as well as hanging out with my agent and talking with my team at Henry Holt.  I have been to the city probably eight or nine times, but I have never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge or taken the Staten Island Ferry. What else should I do there?

3. For the moment, my mom is doing better.  I've heard this time called "bonus time." Of course, for all of us, it could be bonus time.

4. I finished edits on two books. Yay! One book, which was written in a horrific blur, ended up having the fewest edits of anything I have written ever.

5. I'm not sure how this happened, but for the second year in a row, I find myself beginning two books at the same time. Or maybe not beginning two books at the same time. I'm finding it hard to concentrate, but I really need to be producing lots and lots of words.
