Children of The Tracks #MysteryMonday

Hey, everyone. I’m happy to report my missing muse has reappeared. I wrote a bit on my WIP this weekend and sent three chapters to my critique partners. I’m still behind in scheduling blog posts. In particular, research for Mystery Mondays has been lacking. I became aware of this week’s tale several years ago and... Continue Reading →

The Mary Celeste #MysteryMonday

Hey everyone. Welcome to the first Mystery Monday of the new year. Today’s story dates back almost 150 years and is one of the greatest maritime mysteries of all time.

In many ways,... Continue Reading →

Hey, everyone. This week I wrap up the “mission persons” theme of Mystery Monday. Not to say I won’t revisit similar stories in the future, but next week I’m shifting gears since it’s October and the month of Halloween. The disappearance of English settlers on Roanoke Island in 1590 is one of the oldest mysteries... Continue Reading →

MH 370 #MysteryMonday

Hey, everyone. Welcome to another Mystery Monday. This week’s story is no doubt, one of the strangest disappearances in modern history. It’s not hard to imagine a small plane like the one Amelia Earhart flew disappearing in 1937. Radio communications weren’t as sophisticated, and we didn’t have the benefit of satellite communication. But how does... Continue Reading →
