There is no better feeling than the one a writer feels when they have delivered a final document to their publisher. So I am feeling blessed and relieved to have sent A Twist of Fortune, the latest book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series, to my publisher of choice, Baico Publishing and sit back and relax, right?
Wrong. This is actually when the hard work begins. Writing is fun and still an adventure to me. I love the creative process and the burrowing into the minds of my characters so that I can write down and share what they think and believe. When I begin a book I never know where it will end, and sometimes I don’t ever want it to end. But that’s what a series is for. I get to write in short frantic bursts until I reach a point in the road where all the signs point to taking a break. So I do.
But now is not the time for that break. Now is the time to tell the world about A Twist of Fortune, and to bring you and me back to the little world of Sgt. Windflower and his friends. I hope you will join me on this journey. It’s been a blast so far. Stay tuned to this space for excerpts, giveaways and more.
Here’s a taste of what A Twist of Fortune is about.
The small town of Grand Bank in southeast Newfoundland, at the very eastern tip of Canada is in crisis. Their largest employer and a link to the glorious past, the fish plant is closing. Sgt. Winston Windflower’s personal life is also in crisis since his longtime girlfriend, Sheila Hillier is leading a community protest to try and stop the closure. It may be too late for the fish plant, but is it too late for Windflower and Sheila?
If that wasn’t enough, they are being buried in snow and an epidemic of prescription drug abuse that is creating major problems for people and the police who patrol the area. An accidental death on a snow-covered highway leads only to more questions and more problems for Sgt. Windflower and the RCMP to resolve.
A Twist of Fortune is the fourth book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series and it continues the adventures of Sgt. Windflower as he tries to solve crime and experience the joy and the sadness of life in a small Newfoundland community. Follow along as he feels the sometimes bitter taste of an east coast winter and the unique culinary delights of this part of the world. This story is like the weather in Newfoundland. It can twist and turn at any time.
Oh, and Sgt. Windflower has a new Lady friend. What??? You’ll just have to read A Twist of Fortune to find out more.
