Happy New Year! I'm working on a new storyline with reader Zinal. She's a Lester fan, and has requested a custom built story with an HEA (happily ever after) for Lester with an exciting, original female character she created named Alex. Before you jump to conclusions, this Lester is equal to his cousin, Ranger, but in a different way. If Ranger is Rambo, Lester is James Bond. While Ranger was infiltrating the camps of Colombian drug lords and torturing information out of industrial saboteurs, Lester was being wined and dined by unsuspecting hosts whose social circles would bring him close, but never suspiciously close, to his targets, both foreign and domestic. His charming personality and infectious laugh opened doors, gained confidences, and revealed secrets without anyone being the wiser. Lester stands out as a chameleon and a con-man, but he's just as lethal as any other 007 out there. This story picks up toward the end of Hard Eight, and then veers off into Lester's story. Ever wonder exactly how Eddie Abruzzi met his maker? You'll find out in Chapter two of Lester's Legacy.

Ok, someone has really inspired me lately to get back to writing (you know who you are), and I'm fitting it into a tight schedule, so don't be too hard on me. I always think I'm writing fluff, and this one is starting out no different, but hopefully it will be a wonderful adventure for all of us. I love not really knowing all the details and being surprised along the way at how the pieces fit together. This time, we are going to explore Ranger's seemingly inexhaustible supply of hot cars. This suggestion is from my husband...no surprise there, huh? Guys want to hear about Ranger's guns and cars...not about his feelings. That's not to say we won't have a little excitement...but Ranger's reputation is on the line, so...it's pretty serious (giggle). Enjoy!

My latest story is Ranger Redefined. It started out as a bit of fluff, but it's shaping up to be a full length novel as well. I am really letting the characters run on this one. Stephanie has finally had it with Joyce Barnhardt and is determined to put an end to the harassment. Ranger is facing a deadly nemesis of his own from his Special Forces days. Joe is no longer in the running. And Tank is back with Lula, where he belongs. We get to go deep into the Rangeman lifestyle on this one, which is something I've been dying to write. Hope you enjoy it.

I've got a new story for you. I always knew where Maybe Morelli left off, and where it was going. It's finally down in outline form, and I'm going to do my best to get it fleshed out for you in story format. Please review. I am more motivated to write when I know someone is waiting for the next chapter. Stephanie Plum, Grandma Mazur, Connie, Lula, and the rest already have me laughing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

May you have peace and joy over the holidays, and year round!

I can't believe how may people have read these stories over the last several years. It is just overwhelming to me. I hope to write more Plum stories for you soon.

Lately I've been listening to audiobooks like Artemis Fowl and Skulduggery Pleasant. Young Adult fiction is so much fun. Adults are just too serious for me. That's why I like Stephanie Plum. She makes us laugh.

So, if you're up for it, be sure you save my sign on in your author subscriptions so you will get an instant notification when each chapter is posted. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoy writing it.

God bless and keep you!

About me:

I have been writing fan-fiction based on Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. I can't tell you how much more rewarding it is to write when someone else is reading it! I can't believe the response. Seconds after posting a chapter, you guys are already reading and responding, from all over the world. My favorite script for sharp dialogue (right now) is probably The Lion In Winter. You can rent either the old movie version with Katherine Hepburn or the new version with Patrick Stewart and Meryl Steep. I like them both.

My favorite author (right now) is Charles Martin. His books are titled: The Dead Don't Dance, Wrapped in Rain, When Crickets Cry, Maggie (sequal to The Dead Don't Dance), and Chasing Fireflies. He's a powerful and insightful writer who understands the darkness within us and how fragilie the light seems at the end of the tunnel that offers us hope.

The power of books and the written word has always amazed me. Still does. What power we have to affect people with our words...if we only care to use them.

My long-time favorite book for word-smithing and descriptive narration is the Gormenghast trilogy - Titus Groan, Gormenghast, Titus Alone - by Mervyn Peake. I remember finding him, literally, where he'd written himself into a small dark corner of the story, and I jumped up from where I was, knowing it was a secret I'd discovered, and just thrilled beyond description. I actually dropped the book and started packing. I was going to meet him, no matter what it cost to fly to England or how old he was. I just had to talk to him. I cried for three days straight when I found out he was already gone.

I've studied the writers probably every bit as much as what they wrote. Worlds are created in their minds...they are lived in, loved and nurtured, sometimes for years and decades before anyone else is allowed enterance. You know when you step into one of those worlds. It's not just another book. It's a deepest desire, and it's wrapped around by a yearning to share it with someone else in hopes of being accepted. It's a very intimate thing and it takes a lot of courage to share it, and even more to publish it and open yourself to the opinion of the world.

The best books are like a love letter that makes your heart beat faster as you turn the pages. You never give that precious book away. You must possess it, memorize it, and remember it, and it becomes a part of you. The Bible is that book for me.

Lester's Legacy reviews
Reader Zinal's concept. Lester HEA with a mysterious woman. If Ranger is Rambo, Lester is James Bond - a natural chameleon and clever con-man, but just as lethal as any 007 out there. The story picks up in Hard Eight, and then focuses on Lester's story. Ever wonder exactly how Eddie Abruzzi met his maker? You'll find out in Chp 2. Some Ranger & Steph action. Lots of laughs.
