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.
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.
I, along with about 100 other authors, will be taking part in the 7th Annual Rhode Island Author Expo this coming Saturday, December 7. The event is held at Rhodes on The Pawtuxet in Cranston, RI from 10:00 to 4:30. All types of books will be represented, from mystery to non-fiction to children’s books. If you’re in the area, please stop by. Admission and parking are both free. Remember, a signed book makes a wonderful gift.
I just got back from a road trip in California doing research for an upcoming book. Stopped in Salinas to visit my friend John Steinbeck. It’s always good to see him.
This past week. I took part in a mystery authors’ panel discussion at the Ames Free Library in North Easton, MA. It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed having the opportunity to spend time with fellow mystery authors Debi Graham-Leard and Ray Anderson, as well as to meet some very nice local mystery fans. It’s always nice to connect with people.
