There’s Something So Exciting About Hidden Doorways, Don’t You Think?

Hi, Friend!

I am very busy working on Book 2. I have been researching hidden doorways that lead to secret passageways. Here is a photo shared with me of a bookcase with a hidden door. Really cool. In the book it will lead to a secret passageway that will ultimately lead to a dense wooded area. I can’t wait to write it.

This one is from the Austrian National Library, Wien, Austria. You can check it out here.


As you may recall from my newsletter last month, February is National Library Lovers Month. I am happy to be able to share this awesome information about International Thriller Writers’ sponsorship of a library at an all-girls school in Nigeria. You can follow the link if you would like to support this awesome project.

Two federal investigators, a dead graduate student, and a controversial hallucinogen.

Dr. Kep Woodhead is a brilliant, irascible forensic toxicologist with a dark past.
