An Update

I just realized that I haven't been on Booklikes almost all year. I could make all sorts of excuses about commitments that I regret making and writing projects begun and discarded. Instead, I will start anew with an update and the hope that I can rejoin the ranks of loyal bibliophiles here.


Without wasting time (or any more than has already been wasted) on my discarded WIP, I can tell you that I have a new project in the works with high hopes for a 2020 publication date.


It has nothing to do with Tudors. Or Plantagenets.


Instead, I've taken a trip to Ottawa, Illinois. My next book takes me to an entirely different time and place, shedding some light on the dial painters of the early twentieth century and their fate to die of radium poisoning.


If you haven't heard of the radium girls before, you will be shocked by their story!
