My next novel is a supernatural murder mystery called Purpleton Village. It features an apparition, a mountain retreat for writers, and a psychiatrist whose wife is accused of being a witch. I’ve worked as a counselor and have an interest in psychology, so mental illness will feature prominently in this novel. The story will also be about a sort of evolution in consciousness…waiting to see what all I come up with to give the story meaning.
Just finished an outline of scenes for the novel and have begun writing the story. I’d like to drown myself in the Village all day and into the night, but my day job prevents this…still, the storytelling of Purpleton Village has begun!
