The Pups Celebrating my Baer Dae

Greetings from the 60yo Hermit Writer.

Fav Passage from the WIP

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Darshee and Wizper sat on the veranda when we got there, black-dirty feet spread out in front of them, quilted vests open against the breeze rising off the Lake, faces hued with their own exhaustion.
“Hiking was good?” I asked.
The hint of smiles wrinkled against their tusks.
Nuel and I climbed the grand stairs to their level, and turned to take in the view. It is what one does at Black Lake near twilight. The Lake is always too beautiful to rightly describe, but evolves from its daytime purple to flickering gems hued teal and orange so extraordinary they can blind you. The only thing that saves the soul from the majic of the billowing water is the tranquility of the south shore pine forests breaking the amazing panorama.
“Wow,” Nuel drawled.
Finally. Something we could agree upon.

Rainy Hike

Greetings from the Hermit Writer. My hiking buddy Heidi and I trekked to the Alderman Ford Nature Preserve eager to enjoy the cooler weather, and experienced drizzle and clouds. But we didn't roast to death, so it was a good day.

sign off - Patricia McLinn

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

I love to find an author I can recommend...especially when you can start off with a free read. I found the first passages of this novel less than fluid...which was really strange, because the rest of the writing was outstanding, so hang in their a couple pages. But I think you will like this author, and this novel, if you like the suspense genre.

Here on Amazon

Next Novel - Cover Concept

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

I look forward to working again with the artist who did my four Black Lake covers. I sent him a concept I'm working on for my next Black Lake novel set in present time...with ogres and trolls, my favorite people.

I'll show you the original I'm using for tone...with my cheesy concept-mock-up...visualize the ogre in biker leathers...the two ladies in the background are two ogre hens.

Steve's great art.

Macie Louise

Tina and Alexandra on a packed beach

Florida sun in my eyes

I do love those clouds

Little boat on big water

I can't keep the secret any longer. I've published a new novel.

More Shots on the Water, Sigh

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

A favorite view of Tampa's skyline

Roscoe's top part

Roscoe's bottom part (I love those feet)

See the bicycle? Wonder if they get dizzy riding round and round the deck.

Diamonds on the water.

Lines against the blue

I'm very excited about my new title . . .

Davis Island Dog Beach

Greetings from the Hermit Writer. Even when my pups aren't with me...I stop by the dog beach.

The sky was actually very blue...the low sun did it's weird thing.

Frankie has very cool eyes.

Mason was one laid back pup

Just cruised, for no particular reason

King didn't think too much of me...growled a few times. Ah!

Marsha Marsha ... she just happened to be the next shot on the roll

Don't wish to annoy...but did you know I've published a new title?
