Welcome to the #SQUIRREL blog series, catering to those of us with short attention spans. With very little fan fair you will get to know the author in as few words as possible. I have also invoked lucky number 7 in hopes of bringing each of us good health, happy days, and big sales. Enjoy and feel free to leave comments. For those happy to share, click on each individual #SQUIRREL and liberally apply the 'share' buttons at the end of each post.

I’ve been transported to a world set on the dark side of a city’s streets.
(Where naughty squirrels end up leading a life of nutty crimes. They call me Squirrelly Noir. Don't anyone steal that! I've already started writing the book. I have witnesses!)
Melded with the mind of Detective Will Mansion, I have heard his thoughts and felt his pain.
I’ve struggled with him to control the post-traumatic stress disorder that hobbles him.
I’ve felt his frustration as he sought a remedy in meditation and found it to be a challenge.
I’ve been right by his side as he hunted down a vicious killer.
(Killer squirrel here! Rabid!)
I’ve empathized with his gnawing doubts as to who is friend and who is foe.
When solving one mystery only raised new questions, like Will, I laughed and readied myself to keep seeking answers.
#5 - Rewrite a major scene in this book, in 7 words. Can be connected as in a sentence or individual.
Lix tattoos a lotus on Will’s belly.
(He did what?! I sure hope Will is into flowers otherwise, this could get ugly. Squirrel Fight!)
#6 - In 7 sentences, tell me what you are writing, or working on, now?
Blood Guilt, my National Novel Writing Month 2016 project.
Like The Zen Detective, it’s a mystery with a mystical twist.
Police detective Paul Toberman tackles a series of baffling, brutal killings.
The killer proves to be otherworldly.
Plus, a couple of Fantasy short stories.
And, not one but two new cozies featuring Candy Wadsen, heroine of Murder by the Book.
Fans clamored for more stories with her and Detective Dan.
