What Fun: "Fiction Addiction" in Cheshire

A terrific reading group, calling itself the Fiction Addiction, discussed Eagle Scouting for their January 7 meeting. I was invited to sit in on their discussion to answer some questions and talk about my writing process. The group was organized by members of a "Meet-up" of Dynamic Professionals formed by Ellen Foster, a 5-foot dynamo who is a super organizer!

"Going Home Again: A Presentation in Bristol, CT"

I had a great time speaking to a wonderful group of women on Nov. 8 about my two books, Eagle Scouting: A Novel and In Flight: A Novel. Thanks to Kimberly Kiniry Lynch and her mom Rosanne Kiniry for hosting me, and Linda Lynch for helping with the event. The discussion, about the many similarities between the two main characters, was called "Going Home Again." I'm available to talk about the new novel - which is a work of fiction about the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and events before and after in Connecticut - or both books, to your reading group, book club, or other organization. Contact me on Facebook or through my contact page here.

Eagle Scouting grabs readers from the first chapter and illuminates the dark soul of a terrorist cell operating in a small town on the Connecticut shore. Fast-paced chapters alternate between the activities of the undercover operative, Raoul (known to the terrorists as Ismail), and his sister Clara Quiñones, who arrives in town to try and make sense of her brother's gruesome death. Although the ending may seem inevitable, the conclusion is still a satisfying shocker. Order your copy in an ebook or paperback format today by visiting the ORDER page, or clicking here.
