The new year will soon be upon us. As I have for the last several years on this blog, it is a time for reflection and renewal.
With the recent release of COLD OATH, I now have eight published novels, six in my Brad Frame series and two standalone suspense novels.
I've been mulling my next writing challenges. In 2017, I plan to write a Brad Frame short story, which will probably be in the 15,000 word range. My expectation is to share this story to introduce readers to the Brad Frame character, and hopefully generate more interest in the six novels that are already a part of the series.
I've enjoyed writing the suspense novels, and I'd like to tackle another one in 2017.
In mid-January, I'll be performing my one-man Ben Franklin play in Orlando at the John & Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center. I plan to seek additional performance opportunities for the play throughout the course of the year.
Maintaining my health is important to me (which means trying to lose a few pounds as well as staying physically active). My mental health is equally important, so I plan to love more and fret less. Life's a Mystery, but as the saying goes, "None of us gets out of here alive," so best to stop stressing about the small stuff (like Facebook posts that make me cringe) and devote my attention to the people and issues in my life that really matter.
Wishing you a happy and healthy 2017!
