I remember last spring, we had three weekends in a row with rainy Saturdays?  My grandsons little league games got cancelled again.  Heavy thunderstorms were headed our way.  What shall I do with my Saturday?  Don’t think I’ll be getting out in it, forget the oil change I had planned.  It’ll wait until another Saturday.

I finally decided to work on The Color of Thunder.  I had received my reviews in from my Beta readers that I still needed to compare and I should be working on the corrections that are needed to get it ready for publication.  Nah, not in the mood for that either.  Writing is a lot more fun than “fixing”.

I guess I could clean house.  OMG, where did that come from?  Not happening today.  Or I could get back to work on Shattered Dreams.  Yes, that sounds like a plan.  The cat is still stalking Josh, and no one agrees with him on the three murders, so I guess that’s a good place to start.

Sheriff Dodge Brewster is the only one who agrees with Josh on this case, but every clue they uncover just leads to more confusion.  Every alibi for every suspect checks out perfectly.  They are still stuck with the age old question: Who Done It?

Shattered Dreams, the third novel in the Dreams Never Lie series, will be released later this year.  That is, if I can figure out, Who Done It?

This is a blog that I started months ago, and never finished.  In case you’re wondering, I did FINALLY figure out ‘who done it’.  Shattered Dreams is in the editing stage right now with plans for a Spring 2020 release.


“I discovered your books through my dad, and fell in love with Josh in the Dreams Are Forever series. You’ve become my favorite author and I’ll never forget actually getting to meet you when you came to Arkansas to promote your books. I haven’t read The Color of Thunder yet, but I can’t wait to dig in. Love you Elsie!” -JAIA

When Elsie decided to try her hand at writing a novel, Fire Light Fire Bright was born followed by Dreams Never Lie -which quickly became her publisher’s first Best-Selling Series. The Color of Thunder was published right between Dreams are Forever and Shattered Dreams. Elsie was born in Brooksville, Florida. Some of her fondest memories were swimming at Pine Island in the nearby Gulf of Mexico. Weeki Wachee Springs is where she learned to swim. In the early 1980’s, Elsie and her three children, Katie, Lisa G. and Jes moved to Texas. Shortly after moving to North Central Texas, Elsie met her husband Ronnie on a blind date and after a whirlwind courtship, they married in April 1987. After 34 years, they're still going strong.
