If you’ve been reading my posts you’ll remember I talked about “Jeb”. His first draft is finished and he gave me the privilege of reading it.
What an amazing story he’s put together. I can’t wait until he’s worked out some of the kinks and fine tuned it.
It has all the facts and drama. Well, to a point. I have the drama in my part.
I can’t reveal anything in it, but if you know the real story of the Martin family who went missing in 1958. You have the basics.
What goes into writing a story like this? Time and Money! Research, research and knocking on doors. He’s done that with diligence.
I started my research before the internet. I lost the drive for it after I moved here and got stonewalled by Ann Sullivan and Margie Boule who wanted all my research while refusing to give anything they had. We reached a stalemate.
Now that I have a partner in this crime story and my family kept pushing me to write it, I did it.
I still have editing to do and I’m meeting “Jeb” for a consultation. I may have more to add.
I’m still working on getting a publisher for both Silent River and The Vanishing of Katherine Sullivan.
I’m hoping for good news in the coming months.
