These Winter Games Aren’t Over

The Games by Patricia McLinn   As you read this, I’m either watching or re-watching the Olympics. Yes, I re-watch them thanks to the wonders of DVR. Sports are sometimes credited with building character. What’s very clear is that they can reveal character. For a writer, that’s irresistible. I love watching the interactions and reactions of everyone involved.

The fascination with the Olympics and what’s going on the lives and hearts of the athletes we see only in snatches on TV led me to write The Games. I was delighted to get to revisit those characters I love while working with narrator Trevor Algatt in turning The Games into an audiobook – wonderful! The audiobook version joins the print book and ebook.

So, if you want more Olympics, come join me and let The Games begin!

 

What I’ve Been Writing & What’s Ahead

Author Patricia McLinn I’ve just finished Book 3 in the “Caught Dead in Wyoming” series. Elizabeth Margaret Danniher, Mike Paycik, Tom Burrell, and the rest are drawn into a mystery when police look into a shooting at the house across the street from Elizabeth’s rental house.

The book – not yet titled – will be out this summer. I’ll keep you posted! Looking ahead, I’ll be working soon on another “Caught Dead in Wyoming” story.

First, though, I’m writing a brand new book in the “Wyoming Wildflowers” series. Ranch foreman Jack Ralston is about to have his solitary existence disrupted. To my surprise and delight, the disrupter is Val from A New World. I’ve always had a soft spot for Eleanor cousin, and now I’ve found the man who desperately needs her … whether he knows it or not. ;-)
