Election 2016

     I almost decided not to write about my personal reaction to the recent presidential election. I knew no minds would be changed, no facts recognized, and it was too late anyway. I’ve changed my mind because I need to know that I’ve said out loud that I stand against evil. Too harsh a word? Maybe, but I don’t think so. Working against every type of human on the planet except straight white males, evil. Turning a blind eye to factual proven science and ruining the earth, our earth, the only place we have to live, by denying climate change, endorsing fossil fuel over renewable energy, allowing fracking, ignoring the increasingly polluted oceans, and refusing to admit we are nearing if not past the possibility of repairing the damage, evil. Ruining education, thus dooming society for the foreseeable future, evil. Painting our country’s great scientific minds as elitists with nothing worthwhile to say, evil.
     All those things sadden me for the future of this great country and the world. The fact that we elected a man who grabs women in intimate places without their permission, wants to abolish women’s rights, works against not for minorities, and has not even a glimmer of a clue on how to fix the economy, foreign relations, or govern with class is horrible. More horrible is the climate of hate, bullying, and discrimination alive in nearly half the population of the United States. The half that chose to ignore the facts and assist Donald Trump in his latest ego trip.

Edie Dykman, Bella Online's Mystery Editor, had this to say about Dowager Diaries, The Black Cane, which is my latest novel.  Thank you Edie for taking the time and effort to review this book.

The Black Cane (Dowager Diaries: Book 1), by Eileen Harris, is the first book in an exciting new series featuring an active group of senior citizens who desire to make a positive difference in other people’s life while remaining active in their own. They are not ready for the old folk’s home, and mean to prove it.

This intriguing mystery story is a powerful look at how aging causes seniors to feel dismissed and overlooked in society, and how seniors have to fight back in order to remain visible in their world.

The gathering of the women to do good in other peoples life brought them a much needed boast in their own life. What they learned along the way and how they were able to solve crimes and help those in needs is the gist of this inspiring read.

Fast-paced and fun, despite the seriousness of abuse, keep pages turning. Never a dull moment with this group. Thankfully, the subtitle indicates more stories are forthcoming from an author who truly understands the desire of seniors to remain viable in an ever changing world.

Book Tour

Due to some serious automobile accident injuries in my family I have been absent from this blog for some time.  I apologize for the gap and hope to be back on my regular schedule in the future.

This entry is to let you know that the first Alicia Trent Mystery, Antique Magic, is being featured on a book tour December 6th through the 13th.  The following link will take you to a list of the sites featuring the book.  Many of the site owners have taken the time to review the book.  I want to thank all of them for finding Antique Magic worth featuring.  I also want to thank Debdatta Sahay for her time and energy in setting up the tour.  Authors write because it's what we love and know how to do, but without people like Debdatta and these blog owners we are only a voice in the dark.  Thank you for helping us be heard.

This is the latest review of my book, The Black Cane.  It is being featured on a book tour this week.  I hope my regular readers enjoy this one as much as they seemed to enjoy the Alicia Trent mysteries.  At the moment Alicia is busy getting into new trouble.  Hopefully you will see more about that soon.

Review: 
By:  Debdatta Sahay at Book R3vi3w

When Amelia runs into a little boy in trouble and decides to help him, little does she know how her life is about to change – drastically. Deciding to shelter the little boy called Marc, their paths take them on an interesting journey full of mysteries and adventure. From eight old women playing bridge one a week, they become a more exclusive sort of club, a club that solves problems to help others. With slight help from Leon and Wade, these ladies not only solve Marc’s case but also take on other projects and complete them successfully.

The first thing about this book that catches you attention is its protagonists. Eight ladies past their prime years who hold a bridge club one a week turn into eight sleuths over a short period of time. That may sound a bit lame at first, but the author gives us a believable reason to realize that it just might be possible. Each lady having been a working professional from varied backgrounds, come together and pool their different experiences and expertise that help them to see situations from a unique perspective. The plot is multilayered. Along with Marc’s case as the base, there are other parallel storyline (or cases) that take place in the story. Though this adds enough flavor to the story, a reader might feel that Marc’s story was being dragged on to make space for these stories. 

Overall, this book makes for an interesting read. I am kind of looking forward to reading more adventures of the Dowager Club.
