Wish Me Luck

Great ideas come and go execution hardly happens. – M. Taggart

This morning I finished writing my third book. My goal was to finish the book before my son’s arrival. I’ve reached that goal. Next I’ll write the query letter and send the story to the agent Megan selected. This story is more important than not. Wish me luck.

I hope your day treats you well.

Northampton, MA. Northampton State Hospital, aka insane asylum. The hospital was shut down when they lost funding and the hospital was forced to literally open the doors. For years patients walked the Northampton streets. The same streets the Ninja Turtles beginnings are tied to.

Holyoke, MA. A severe storm with winds hitting 100 mph carved it's way through this dilapidated mill building near the canals.
