Ready or not, Christmas is only a couple of days away so it is with great pleasure I bring you today's Treasure....a special post by returning guest Janet Elizabeth Lynn.
My husband, Will, and I joined forces to write a 1955 Noir series, The Skylar Drake Murder Mysteries.
Married for 43 years, I wasn't sure if we could make it work since our writing styles were so different. I presented the idea to him and he loved it. STRANGE MARKINGS, our second book in the series is now available, and we are starting our third DESERT ICE.
I think we work well together because we understand that this venture is not a battle of egos, wills, or talent but a goal of telling a great story. And we each bring special talents, foresight and memories that make the stories work.
I will always treasure the time we spend, researching, meetings, editing and sleepless nights working on the book. Then finally holding the book in our hands and high fiving each other. Partnering is a great idea - I'm glad I invented it!!
Wow...43 years together is certainly something to treasure! Congratulations on you and Will's success in marriage and writing.
JANET ELIZABETH LYNN and Will Zeilinger are a husband and wife and authors in their own right. Janet has eight novels, Will has four novels. They decided to get together to write noir mysteries set in 1955. STRANGE MARKINGS is the second. The Skylar Drake Murder Mysteries series. They each bring separate talents to the writing team. Getting together to research, interview, and appearances, they complement each other. Traveling the world has given much insight, a long list of friends and a large basket of hotel shampoo and conditioner.

Here's a peek at Janet and Will's latest book, Strange Markings which can be purchased at Amazon....
The Pacific breezes blow many things in from the ocean, this time its power, greed, and murder. At the dawn of the television age in 1955, Skylar Drake is called to identify the remains of a fellow movie stuntman found buried in a shallow grave. While there, he is shown mysterious wounds and strange tattoos on two additional bodies.
A wealthy Bel Air matron sends her enticing niece to enlist Drake’s help in locating a missing nephew. The search takes him back to pre-statehood Hawaii where he stopped off on his way to the hell of the Korean War. Unexplained deaths, politics and superstitious locals turn the tropical paradise into a nightmare where nothing is what it seems and no one can be trusted.
Hope you enjoyed today's Treasure! I have a very special post for you Thursday but Janet will be back on the 30th for Thursday Thoughts. Hope to see you then!
Until later...take care, God Bless and remember.... Jesus is the reason for EVERY season.
Something to think about....
