 My 14th annual Fall Writer's Retreat has come and gone. Sad.  Once a year, my two wonderful critique partners and I meet in a large cabin by a lake. All year long we each plan out what foods, drinks and writing material we will haul to the cabin to do us for three days. I'm always in charge of breakfast and lunch. One is in charge of a scrumptious meal for Friday night, the other one does Saturday.
  And, I'm talking good homecooked food, or should I say cuisine. Crabcakes..Oh lord, Stuffed mushrooms, Shrimp and Jasmine rice and Crab casseroles. Yummy. Course, we have wine, beer and mixed drinks to wash it down with and chocolate, chocolate cheese cake, chocolate candy, a large assortment of snacks. This year we had champagne to celebrate our accomplishments.
  We eat. We drink and we laugh and stay up to 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning talking. But, most importantly we write. We plot and we brainstorm ideas for our work in process.
  This year, my critique partners stressed ( that's a mild word. LOL) that I need to do another follow up to my Romantic Suspense short story TANGLE WITH TARA. So, during our retreat I began the next sequel with TERRORIZING TARA, a Romantic Suspense short story.
   My heroine, Detective Tara Woods comes face to face with a serial killer. Murdered women are showing up in shallow graves all over New York in the most unusual ways. Detective Woods had thought she'd seen it all. Until now.
  And, her love life is almost as scary. What's a woman to do when she's extremely attracted to both her live-in boyfriend, Jake and her partner, Detective Dobbs? Panic?

TERRORIZING TARA WILL BE RELEASED SOON!  Please visit often for updates.

Talk to you soon. Jerlyn
