I’m happy to say that book 7, Unsafe Harbor, is now in the hands of my Alpha reader and will soon be on it’s way to my Beta readers. On to mystery number 8,which I’m thinking may be going back in time to when Archie Archibald is a young man and becomes a private-eye. If I do that, I would have 3 books featuring him – The Black Orchid Mystery, Unsafe Harbor, and Book #8 (Untitled at this time).
I have a lot of recurring characters in my books. I like that for several reasons. First- it’s easy to start writing when you know who you’re writing about. Second – the people who read my books like reading about characters they already know.
Some of my recurring characters –
Stephen Moorehouse, Jeanette St Jaques, Philip Kahle all appear in The Butterfly Conspiracy, The Peacock Prophecy, and Menagerie of Broken Dreams.
John Barrington appears in The Maze at Four Chimneys and The Black Orchid Mystery.
Archie Archibald is the main character in The Black Orchid Mystery and Unsafe Harbor.
Candace Muldoon also appears in The Black Orchid Mystery and Unsafe Harbor.
I guess the only book I have that does not contain recurring characters is The Pilot. Hmmm, maybe I need to fix that???
