Thanks to the Published to Death blog.
Dear Facebook followers: I have been well and truly hacked and since in dealing with FB you are never dealing with a human being, I cannot make their robot understand I don't have ID I can upload as "G.M." They also keep asking me to prove I am old enough to use Facebook (!!!) This is what talking with a robot will get you. It is 100% impossible to reach a human being.
It is absurd they don't understand authors have pen names, but I am grateful to those of you who signed up for my newsletter. It may be the only way to communicate for now, apart from Twitter, where I'm very active, and Instagram, where I post on occasion.
Agatha Christie's Greenway
If you are an @AgathaChristie fan and on Facebook, you may enjoy this recent Barnes and Noble reposting of my article for them about my trip to Agatha's old haunts, specifically Wallingford and Greenway. Such a splendid trip it was.
My agent hosts me on his blog today at Mark Gottlieb Talks Books. I get to talk a bit about trends and process and a few of my own favorite writers.
The above are artifacts found after 9/11. People in the towers, knowing they were dying, used them to communicate with loved ones. It's hard not to feel outrage and anger all over again but personally, I can't stop mourning until I put aside that outrage. Or try to.

I still mourn her passing and I always will. It will be hard to believe she's gone, even ten years from now. We remember the people who were kind to us (if we are wise). This was a major loss to the world of mystery novels. She and her co-author son, Charles, just celebrated 25 books.
Books, and more books
In 2021 I've written from scratch or revised a total of four books and I'm in various stages with two more. During the pandemic, this was what there was to do.
Yesterday my husband and I got booster shots. Despite the high level of productivity I want this pandemic to end. So people NOT free to stay at home and work can recover. I hope wherever you are, you have access to the vaccine and take advantage of the miracle it represents.
