And In other news...
These months of forced isolation and worry have had impacts on writers in various ways. At times its been difficult to block out the distractions and concentrate well enough to be creative. At other times, being forced to keep only our own company has given us lots of time to work!
Virtual appearances have picked up some of the slack from cancelled events, and Barbara has presented at several Zoom book clubs and talks, with others scheduled in the next few months. Thank you so much to readers for coming out to support writers during these bizarre times.
Barbara spent much of the pandemic working on the the eleventh Inspector Green novel. It has been lots of fun to be back with old friends, and Inspector Green has enjoyed being back in the hunt again!
The book, entitled The Devil to Pay, is out this fall. Meanwhile she's been hard at work on the fifth Amanda Doucette novel, set on Vancouver Island's spectacular west coast. Pandemic restrictions are playing havoc with her research, but she finally got out to the Pacific Rim for research in September. By hook or by crook, the book will come out in the fall of 2022.
