May 26, 2019: The Stuff Novels are Made Of

I’m trying my hand at merging the beginnings of two pretty good short stories into a novel. The first story is a romance that blossoms into love. The second is a murder mystery encompassing law firm and police department intrigue. The thread that ties the stories together is a guy named Jake, a private investigator hired by a Portland City Councilman, and a young woman named Maggie, a lawyer at a firm in Lake Oswego.  Circumstances beyond anyone’s control bring these characters and many others together in significant ways. Working titles: Murder in the City of Roses; The Social Contract and Crime on the Oregon Coast.
