the rain is pouring down right now in Fallbrook, our
first good storm of the year. Long overdue! Even the TV
forecasters were starting to admit we needed it. Last
year I got three giant plastic rain barrels, and I ran
pipes into them from the rain gutters, so now I get
3,000 gallons of rainwater every season for the plants
and trees. I wrote about rain -- much, too much rain --
in Storm Runners.
And also in The Jaguar,
when a hurricane sweeps Charlie Hood and his $1 million
of ransom money into the Tuxpan River.
Brace yourselves for the conclusion to the Charlie Hood
series. It's coming on April 18, and it's called The
Famous and the Dead. All of the mysteries and
rivalries and passions of the previous five novels are
revealed, decided and cemented in one big, fat
swashbuckling story. I think you'll like it. Right now
I'm outlining a new book, and I'll keep you posted on
how it's coming.
Until then, stay dry and warm and get your fingers ready
to turn pages, fast, on April 18 of 2013!
