I'm sorry the newsletter is a little later than usual. Carol and I have just completed our first novel together. She's written three but together we've only done nonfiction. This has been very exciting. I've done most of the research and Carol has done most of the writing. We've had great fun. It's set in 1630 in Plymouth Colony and based on an actual murder there. Killing in Plymouth Colony will be released this fall by Houghton Mifflin. We'll be sure to mention it again when it's out.
