Furlong's Shattered Justice on NYTimes 10 Best Crime Novels of 2020 list
Susan Furlong's third novel in her Bone Gap Travellers mystery series, Shattered Justice, was recently named as a New York Times 10 Best Crime Novels of 2020. The book is set in the remote Tennessee town of Bone Gap, where you’ll find armed militia encampments pitched in the woods and male strippers doing the grind at local bars. The discovery of a body in a playground brings out Brynn Callahan, a sheriff’s deputy, and her dog, Wilco, both veterans of the wars in the Middle East.
Member author Stephen Terrell has had an article "How to Add Novelist to Your Credentials" published in the American Bar Association's Experience Magazine -- Jan/Feb 2021 issue. He will have another article on the Business of Writing published this spring for the same publication.
But how do you become a writer? You don’t need an agent. You don’t need to be paid. You don’t need to be published. You just need to write. Like so many skills, writing is developed by doing, preferably daily. A journal is a good way to develop the writing habit. Maybe it’s a gratitude journal, reflections on your day, coffee shop observations, or perhaps story ideas and character sketches. A personal blog is a convenient way to write for some. Whatever you choose, write regularly.
