Killing Off Characters

Novel - A Twist of Fortune
A Twist of Fortune

One of the most difficult decisions I had to make in my latest book, A Twist of Fortune, was to let one of the characters die. Not one of the main characters or gawd forbid the protagonist, because then the series would be over. I won’t tell you who it was, other than to say that it was a very friendly character that almost everybody inside the story (and readers too!!) liked and enjoyed. It was difficult because I tend to grow fond of the characters and except for the villains, would really like them to stick around.

First Excerpt from A Twist of Fortune: “The Ode to Newfoundland”

Fortune Harbour NewfoundlandWe’re very excited to share the first excerpt from the new Sgt. Windflower Mystery, A Twist of Fortune. It’s called “The Ode to Newfoundland.” Hope you enjoy it.

The Ode to Newfoundland

The scene at the fish plant wharf resembled a full-out carnival. The media had arrived and were setting up as close as they could to the water. Two giant speakers had been set up in the back of one of the pick-ups. It seemed like most of the town was already there, so Evanchuk had her hands full. She had given up trying to keep people from parking on the side of the road and was focused on keeping the drive-by gawkers moving along. She looked very relieved to see Windflower and Tizzard, the latter of whom came to help her direct traffic, while Windflower walked closer to the scene of the action.

Let Me Fish Off Cape St. Mary’s: Excerpt from A Twist of Fortune, New Sgt. Windflower Mystery

Kelland of Flatrock, Newfoundland in 1947, just before the province decided by referendum to join Canada. See below for the lyrics and a version of the song as recorded by the band Ryan’s Fancy.

Here is an excerpt from the new Sgt. Windflower Mystery, A Twist of Fortune.
