“It takes a tightrope artist of a writer to create chapters that successfully delve into a killer’s thoughts without revealing his identity in the process, but Sugarek achieves this with a dance of introspection …” Midwest Book Review for Angel of Murder

Excerpt from my
‘One of the most common questions that novice writers ask me is “How do you overcome writer’s block?” I would define writer’s block as a heavy psychological state in which you’re completely out of ideas about what to write. Usually writers seem to experience it somewhere in the middle of a story rather than near the beginning or end. It can last for days or even weeks and can really get you down and undermine your confidence. My solution is a simple one, and many writers report that it works for them as well.

‘As a writer, I marinate, speculate and hibernate.’ Trisha Sugarek ~~
Alaska was calling! LaVerne’s dream is to follow in Robert Service’s footsteps to the wilds of Alaska. At sixteen she was already writing her own music and she believed that her talent could only flourish on the back trails of the Yukon. Alone and impersonating a boy, she hires aboard a freighter and works her way to the north.
From boat rides on the Yukon and encounters with native tribes to filing homestead papers and working the land, LaVerne uses newfound frontier wisdom as a basis for expanding both her music and her perceptions: “No man owns what Mother Spirit does not freely give.” Black-eyed Joe told her. What a charming folk tale, LaVerne thought. I could use the story in one of my songs.”
It is here she encounters the realities of frontier life and homesteading: experiences that will shape her life, help her create music, and lead her in directions no woman has explored before.This story is based on true events.
‘Song of the Yukon covers more than music growth, more than homesteading in the wilderness, and even more than testing one’s abilities against a foreign environment. Most of all, it’s about one woman’s determination to achieve her dream against any odds – and it provides readers with not only a solid background in frontier experiences, but a sense of self and accomplishment that heroine LaVerne learns through hard experience. Song of the Yukon is a powerful saga, recommended for a range of readers. Thank you for the opportunity to look at your fine title! ‘~~ Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review ~~

Monty is a struggling, unknown artist, living in a loft in Soho. From his third floor walk up, he watches his beautiful neighbor as she comes and goes. Too shy and reclusive to ask her out, he paints her again and again. Suddenly the police are at his door. His goddess, his dream woman is dead and the police like him for the crime.
In book 1 (Art of Murder) of the World of Murder series, Detectives O’Roarke and Garcia sift through the forensics, motives and physical evidence and at first glance it seems that all the evidence points to the strange, young artist who is obsessed with the beautiful actress. As the detective immerses themselves in her life, it turns out that the victim has more than one secret.
Book #5 in the World of Murder series
In Book 5 in the series Taste of Murder, Detectives O’Roarke and Garcia have a cold case dumped on their desk. Despite their objections that they ‘don’t do cold cases’ their Commander tells them that they do now since the new Mayor has asked for them. Three years earlier the mayor’s brother-in-law was murdered and the case was never solved. The cold case plunges the murder cops into the world of television and competitive cooking shows and their pick of suspects three years cold.
