It’s winter in Whitefish. A great time for writing, unless you’re a powder hound. Whitefish ski resort has 108 inches of snow at the top, 10 inches of new powder yesterday. It snowed much of the day today. With such distraction, we have to organize our reading and writing goals to fit in other fun and ski days. When a friend of mine says, “I’ll be at the office today, I know she means her “snow office.”
I’ve been busy writing over the past year, but haven’t kept up with blogging. My plan this year is to publish blogs on various topics on this site and 2 additional: www.lipsticklogic.com (women’s health, but men are welcome) and www.yourheartbook.com. One goal for 2016 is to edit and publish a number of novels I’ve written over the past 15 years. As they near publication, I’ll provide information for some great sales … free book promotions. I have finished four books in a medical thriller series, with two more in process. An editor requested the first one. I’m finalizing it for submission in a few weeks.

Eyes of a Pedophile – Detecting Child Predators will be on sale at the reduced price of $2.99 at both Amazon and Smashwords throughout the month of February.
This true crime book is based on the behavior of sexually violent predator Nathanael Bar-Jonah. I used his life of crime to help readers identify predatory behavior and keep kids safer. The information was obtained first-hand from victims, law enforcement, his trial and sentencing, supplemented with Bar-Jonah discussions and letters after his incarceration in Montana Deer Lodge State Prison where he died. This book should be required reading for all parents, grandparents and childcare providers. Sexual abuse of children is common and often goes unreported. Few families are spared. Reading the book may help you save a child.
