So, this week I told you about a new series I’m working on. It’s about Michael Flint, The Heir Hunter. It involves a very cold case. An armed robbery gone bad back in 1989. Two people were murdered and one escaped. Where is the killer today? It’s all completely fiction, of course!
And then I told you about some recent real-life developments in the world of Italian crime. The good news was that some organized crime rings were thwarted, but the fact that such crime rings exist and are so active is, well, good fodder for a fiction writer like me.
Sigh. It’s time for some more good news, isn’t it? It’s the weekend, after all. How about this: February 27 is National Strawberry Day!
Every year, Florida celebrates strawberries with the Strawberry Festival. It’s a major event, sort of like a state fair, with at least some headliners who you’ve probably heard of.
Here’s a portion of the list of musical acts this year:
Big & Rich
Dick Fox’s Golden Boys starring Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobbie Rydell
Donny and Marie Osmond
The Oak Ridge Boys
