All the Blue-Eyed Angels
Jonestown. The Solar Temple. Heaven’s Gate. In the summer of 1990, the Payson Church of Tomorrow joins the ranks of those infamous cult suicides when thirty-four members burn to death on a small island off the coast of Maine. At ten years-old, Payson member Erin Solomon watches helplessly as the church and its congregation are reduced to ash and embers.
More than twenty years later, Erin is an accomplished investigative journalist when she receives word that she has inherited Payson Isle…and all its demons. She returns to Maine to learn the truth behind the tragedy that has haunted her since childhood, aided by the rakish mentor who’s stood by her since she was a teenager, her trusty mutt Einstein, and a mysterious stranger with his own dark past.
Soon, Erin is enmeshed in violence, conspiracy, and scandal, as she fights to unearth the secrets of the Payson Church of Tomorrow – secrets someone will kill to keep buried.

In this month's Maine Crime Writers post, I give a brief history (and plenty of pics and video) of Magnus the Cat and Marji the Puppy, the newest members of the family here in Phippsburg. Read it...
So... Remember those puppies I was shooting last week? Photos, people, just photos. Relax. Anyway... It turns out, those puppies needed a foster home for a couple of weeks. I applied to be a foster a couple of weeks ago, and had been asking about what they were doing...
Now that Ben and I are settled in our new Phippsburg home (you can read more about that in this post, at Maine Crime Writers), I've started volunteering at the Coastal Humane Society. On this very somber day of remembrance, I thought I would put a much-needed moment...
