Can you believe that the 1920s are now officially 100 years ago? My grandfather was born in “the twenties” but now I guess we can no longer generalize like that. A brand new generation of people are soon to be born in “the twenties”. Boy do I feel old!

Speaking of the 1920s…


Ginger Gold Mystery #12!

Ginger Gold allows me to live vicariously in the 1920s through her, and I'm so happy about that. The 12th book is coming in January 2020. Twelfth. I can hardly believe that either, and that's not counting The Wedding. 

I'm not putting it up for preorder, so stay tuned for more info in the new year.

The ending will surprise you – I promise!



New Series Coming in 2020!

I'm so excited about this new project. Do you love the 1950s? The advent of Rock & Roll, crinoline slips, poodle skirts, soda pop? So much fun!  I'm currently writing and developing an exciting new cozy mystery series with co-writers Norm Strauss and Denise Jaden, and I think you're going to absolutely love it!

More information to come in the new year ~ expect release dates for March, April and May.

Don't worry, there will be more Ginger Gold!

  1. Are you starting the 1950’s series at the top of the decade? So many people write about the 1950’s as the advent of rock and roll but the beginning of the decade doesn’t get a lot of press. I would be especially interested in the shift of popular music from the big band of the 1940’s to the early years of rock and roll.

  2. I’ve been looking forward to the new Ginger Gold “Murder on Fleet Street” for a while now and the new series sounds wonderful too. Thank you for your wonderful mysteries,

  3. I can’t wait for the new series set in the 50s. I grew up in the 50s and 60s! How exciting. But you must know that I love every series you write!

  4. I can’t believe that it’s already 2020 and we don’t have flying cars. I feel the Jetson’s gave me unrealistic expectations of the future. LOL

  5. Oh Wow, Lee! I love every series you have written and now a new one based on the 50s? That’s my childhood era. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  6. Love reading about the 1920’s – hope 2020 is just as fascinating! What’s the proverb…may you live in interesting times?

  7. I enjoyed your comments about the 20s. They inspired me and will be quoting them in my own blog on January 4, , (starting with “Can you believe that the 1920s are now officially 100 years ago”, complete with your #12 picture, on down through “Ginger Gold allows me to live vicariously in the 1920s through her, and I’m so happy about that. The 12th book is coming in January 2020. “) By the way, I read your series to my husband while we’re on the road.

    While my own storytelling about the 1920s is on the U.S. side of “the Pond”, the reason I featured this issue of your blog is explained in my own comments:
    I’ve been looking back at the 1920s with my newest program, “High Times in the Dry Times” about Prohibition here in Michigan. It looks primarily at how our two year head-start and location led to our providing 75% of the smuggled alcohol. (While preparing it I thought that amount sounded high, but, if anything, it may be a bit low.) A frequent reaction is how much the 1920s sound like today. My reporter persona looks back from the mid-30s, so I have to let the audience draw their own conclusions.

    Trust you are agreeable with my giving your blog a “shout-out.” If not, please let me know _right away!_ My own start with your series was Murder on the SS Rosa & admit to being influenced by the review from Molly C. Quinn, the actress on Castle.

    Oh and my husband and I chuckle at Ginger’s enjoyment of being able to drink in England’s not having Prohibition!
