Exciting news, I’ve finished writing my very first locked room mystery. What started out as a short story evolved into a novella-length work. The idea for The Locked Room came from a reference in Duplicity. In my book Duplicity, James Lalonde mentioned that he solved a murder at the bed and breakfast run by Professor Xavier Watson and his wife, Flora⏤The Locked Room, is the story about this murder.


Today, I’m sending The Locked Room off to a beta reader before sending it off to my line editor and proofreader.


I enjoyed writing this story, and I can’t wait to share this novella with you.
