And that’s where I will work hard to keep engaging your interest and share valuable topics, with you, about writing. I don’t profess to know all there is to know about what makes a good writer. The art of writing is a long process and in my experience has taken me decades. I am still learning every day.
In addition to my twice-a-week posts, once a month a best-selling author will share their writing world with us in an interview. Don't miss it!
The final segment of my Interview with this fascinating author!
Q. and the all important: What does the process of going from "no book" to "finished book "look" look like?
A. I guess references to the Jonestown Massacre would be inappropriate? For some people it's a pretty orderly process. I envy them and I try to be more orderly with every book.

THE ART OF MURDER, a short novel
Book 1 of The World of Murder series
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.
Detective Roarke sifts through the forensics, motives and physical evidence and at first glance it seems that all the evidence points to the strange artist who is obsessed with the beautiful actress. But, as time passes, several other suspects come to the attention of Detective Roarke and the case is now not so open and shut. As the detective immerses himself in her life, it turns out that she has more than one secret.

Violet (The Guyer Girls) has grown into a beautiful woman with children of her own. She has left her small home town in the Pacific Northwest to pursue a successful basketball career and with her earnings, she bought a bar and grill. She is a ‘flapper’ in every sense of the word; working all day and playing all night. While her teenage daughter raises her seven year old son, Violet is out on the town with her latest man de’jour. Dressed in her signature red dress, she is the toast of the town and owner of a speakeasy where she hosts the cream of San Francisco’s society, city politicians, bishops, and Hollywood celebrities.
But there is an underbelly of corruption, grifters, the mob, excess, and neglect in Violet’s life.

'Song of the Yukon' is a powerful historical novel that opens in the Yukon in 1923. In her third novel, Sugarek 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. A commanding saga, Song of the Yukon is recommended for a range of readers. Thank you for the opportunity to look at your fine title!'
REVIEW from FreshFiction.com '......This novel is a fine adventure in the rugged country of Alaska laced through with poetry and friendship. Trisha Sugarek has written several other works including fiction about her mother's life (Wild Violets) as a flapper in the roaring twenties. She brings her settings vividly to life. Try SONG OF THE YUKON for a slice of life less ordinary.....FreshFiction.com
