Rustle Up This Whodunit
In Reaction Shot, the newest Caught Dead in Wyoming mystery, Elizabeth Danniher, her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik, rancher Tom Burrell, and their supporting staff of sleuths take on the case of a ranch foreman found dead. For most in Cottonwood County, the reaction is … good riddance. Suspects include the hot-headed Hiram Poppinger, townsfolk seeking revenge for a long-ago murder, fellow grazing association ranchers — and Tom.
Spotlight on Writing
I was a guest on Draft2Digital’s Spotlight live YouTube chat series in April to offer advice for authors looking to make a career out of their writing. Key takeaway: writers starting out should take the long view. Do the things that are sustainable for you as a person so you can continue to have a long career. Thank you to host Dan Wood, D2D’s director of operations and author relations.
