Read all about it......

Dear Friends,
Many of you have followed my blog for years and I appreciate it. When I look at my last post, it was Easter, 3 months ago, and I apologize for the lapse in posts.
As I may have mentioned, I have been writing and finally published my book,
The Gay Detective.

The premier of Nick Scott’s TV talk show, The Gay Detective, appears to be a big hit until his first guest ends up murdered. Nick, also a detective with the Chicago Police Department, and his older, straight partner Detective Norm Malone hunt this heinous serial killer tagged The Grim Reaper. This Odd Couple encounters both personal and professional conflict as this suspenseful noir thriller races to a surprise conclusion that leaves Nick and Norm battling for their lives.

My new website and I also have a blog attached to it, 

I may post occasionally here but you will find most of my new information on those sites. 

I have enjoyed posting here and the feedback I received. In fact, it's been a blast.
Look forward to seeing you at my new sites. Thank you.

Happy Easter

On Easter morning, our family would go to Easter Mass and once we returned home we would celebrate a Polish tradition.

The day before, we had taken a basket of assorted foods to our local parish and had it blessed at an appointed time. Usually, we saw our neighbors there who were doing the same in preparation for Easter Sunday.

As we gathered in the living room or kitchen, my mother would start by saying,Chrystus ZmartwychwstaƂ” (Christ is risen)" usually to my father and he would respond with: “Prawdziwie zmartwychwstaƂ!” (Truly He is risen). This would then be passed on to each of us kids and then we were to say the same to each other. This usually involved a kiss and a hug, followed by an English, "Happy Easter."  Then each of us sampled each item in the basket which symbolized Christ's suffering until his Resurrection. Once this was finished, we usually settled in to a large Easter breakfast.

It is a wonderful tradition which is still practiced by members of my family today. With that in mind, I wish each of you a Happy Easter or as my mother would say, "Christus Zmartwychwstal."

And the winner is.....

Thanks to all who voted.  I think it's a quote that is significant to the book. Your help is much appreciated.

“Any advice for those out there struggling with their sexuality?”  I asked my guest.

“Sexuality is an important part of life, but not the most important. Be known for your accomplishments, not your preferences.”

I'm asking for your help.  I've posted a poll on my home page asking you to vote for the blurb you like best.

The blurb will go on the back cover of my book The Gay Detective. The reason I'm asking is I don't know which one is the most interesting or the one that will get readers to want to read the book.

Your vote will help me determine which one to use on the cover.

There will be giveaways as time gets closer but your help now will be much appreciated.
