My Next Novel

I can’t believe, I haven’t posted a blog about my writing life for almost a year!  Guess that’s because I’ve not only been very busy traveling (read my latest Adventures with Sher blog, on my recent trip to Switzerland and Italy), but also, doing reseach on my next novel, which takes place in Astoria, Oregon, Paris in the 1980’s and goes back to  WW II in Sweden. The protagonist, Lena, goes in search of family secrets and is shocked to learn why her Swedish Grandmother screamed at night. The working title of my book is Scream and I may use the famous painting by Norwegian artist, Alfred Munch, as my cover. 

Painting The Scream by Munch

I’ll keep you posted as I go along. This month gave me a jumpstart as I joined the NaNoWriMo competition to see if I could write 50,000 words in one month. It’s been quite a challenge, especially since we just returned  to our winter home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and there are so many wonderful distractions here, starting with the Day of the Dead festivities just after our return. 

Wish me luck and stay tuned. I may post a few sample pages of the new novel as we go along. I would greatly appreciate your comments.
