Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back to work on my next book. Stay tuned for details.
Upcoming book fair
I’m gearing up for the Cape Cod Writers Book Festival in Osterville on July 19. Should be a great day. Hope you’ll be able to make it.
My upcoming book, Deadly Diamonds, the fifth of the Amy Lynch Investigations, will be available on October 15. Jordan Rich of WBZ iHeart Radio recently reviewed Deadly Diamonds on his regular feature The Book Club. Here is what he had to say:
PK Norton is back with another finely cut mystery! It’s Amy Lynch at her best, investigating a rash of diamond robberies and related murders. Murder is in the air and Amy is in a race to solve the crime before she too becomes a victim. One cannot help but admire Amy as we stay up late reading to find out how she will go about cracking another beguiling case. She is resourceful, smart and just the kind of woman all of us want to root for.

Today the doctor told me the residual effects from my concussion – lack of balance, issues concentrating, etc. – may be with me for months. Football players seem to heal a lot more quickly. I’m wondering if I should have become a football player rather than an author!
Home from the hospital! Fractured skull is healing. Brain bleeds have stopped. Brain swelling going down. Residual effects of concussion – nausea, headaches, balance issues – are likely to hang around for a while. The crazy thing about my accident is that in the book I am currently working on to come out next spring, Amy Lynch has an accident that results in a concussion. I now know that I got it all wrong! Hell of a way to do research. Oh well, back to the drawing board.
In these troubled times, stay well, wash your hands, ask for help if you need it and remember to check on your neighbors.
I just came across this while cleaning out a drawer. Haven’t worn it in a long time.
My favorite Christmas gift: My 8 year-old great niece created this wonderful crossword using all my book titles. Clever, isn’t she?
I spent last Saturday at the Rhode Island Authors’ Book Expo. Met a lot of nice people, sold some books. All in all, a very pleasant day.
