We have your granddaughter. Here’s what you need to do.

Thomas T. Thomas III reviewed the language. Again. He closed the phone without hitting send. Yet.

He stared through high-powered binoculars from atop the wooded knoll. As always, the girl hit one perfect shot after another.

Cassie Webber. Age 11. He’d been tailing her for three months. It seemed longer.

She was chaperoned everywhere she went. Two-a-day practices before and after school. Her dad drove her in the morning. He watched her empty bucket after bucket and then dropped her off at school. Her mom picked her up after school, ferried her back to the practice range, and brought her home after daughter and coach finished. Mom and …

Guest Post

Thanks for having me on the blog to share a bit about my third novel, Lies She Told.

My favorite line in Lies She Told comes in the first act. Liza Cole, my author protagonist, is explaining how she develops her stories. “I don’t invent my characters, I steal them from my surroundings. To be a writer is to be a life thief. Every day, I rob myself blind.”

Eleven by Carolyn Arnold is the first installment in the Brandon Fisher FBI series. Brandon is a new agent, still in his probationary period, when his team is called in on a grisly discovery. As the agents delve deeper into the case, things get personal.

It reminded me of watching episodes of some of my favorite television shows. The characters felt well-developed, and there were lots …
