It is with great pride and no small amount of disbelief that I announce next month’s publication of The Arsonist’s Last Words. Mansfield House Books will release it on Sept. 11 in trade paperback and digital versions (iBooks, Kindle, Nook and Sony Reader). This novel took eight years to write, and there were times when the finish line seemed out of reach, so to have the print proof here on my desk is astounding. A heartfelt thanks to my family and friends for their endless support and encouragement. (Seriously, you must have started to doubt whether the thing actually existed.) Please visit the publisher’s web site for more information, and stay tuned for updates here and on Facebook.
