Stop the presses! Copper Daniels Book #2 is really and truly coming out. For reals, people! The launch date for Bones and Lies Between Us is . . .
I had no idea back when Pennies from Burger Heaven was published in 2015 that it would take me four long years to write the sequel. Never did I dream I would fall into such a dark place after our house fire.

The road to hell will be paved with my good intentions. Awhile back, okay – months ago, I told you that my manuscript for the sequel to Pennies from Burger Heaven had been sent to my developmental editor.
