  1. Hi guys!

    I’ve recently come across your blog and writers. What a wonderful group you have here. Well, I’m not from Maine, I make my tent in the Midwestern state of Ohio.

    Some of us have started an event called Mystery Thriller Week that begins February of next year. Would love to connect with you! It would please to no end to involve you in some way, shape, or form.

    See http://www.mysterythrillerweek.com for more info. Or Facebook or Goodreads by the same name.

    Have fun!

    I am really excited to announce that my editing and book proposal writing service has moved back home to Maine after 33 years in Nashville!

    Many snows ago I lived on Loring Air Force Base in upper Aroostook county between Caribou and Limestone. I did my first two years of high school at Limestone High.

    I have always recalled the wild beauty of the country, the frigid storms in winter, the two second springs when plants began to crawl from under the snow and the summers so brief yet memorable in the years leading to the autumnal fading of summer.

    I only found Eastport with the discovery of “Dead Cat Bounce” by Sarah Graves. It was a joy to be drawn into the close knit community and trail behind “Jake and Ellie” as they pursue the less than obvious clues that bring a miscreant to justice.

    I will visit there one day and hope to feel the pleasure of the place, the smells and the ambiance so well described in the Sarah Graves novels!

    Live in peace and the constant awareness of how much we have to learn.
