The Power of Faith
The third installment of the Faith Ferguson Series, The Power of Faith, is in the works. After her summer of discovery, Faith is back in Boston where she hopes to return to a more normal and less magical existence. That is not to be, as she faces threats from both non-magical and magical forces.

Holbein Duo Aqua Oil Paint
Just finished my first painting (Petals #1) using Holbein Duo Aqua oil paint. I found these water soluable oils to be a great middle ground between acrylics, and traditional oils. They give the blendability of oils without the use of solvents. The clean-up was amazingly easy, washing my brushes with just soap and water. They did, however, not dry any faster than traditional oils. I imagine that this is because I used the Duo Aqua linseed oil, rather than using water as my medium. I haven't yet varnished this work, and I'll be interested to see if I run into any difficulties there, but, so far, I'm very pleased with these paints.
Duxbury Art Association's Annual Juried Winter Show
My painting "Tea with Lemon"Art was accepted into the 2018 Duxbury Art Association's annual winter juried art show which is held at the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury MA. This is a wonderful show that runs through the third week in April. If you're in the vicinity, you should definitely drop by.
PCA Annual Juried Show
I submitted my painting Tea with Lemon, and was pleased to, once again, be selected for the annual juried art show at Plymouth Center for the Arts.

Having just published After the Ivy, I'm turning my attention to the "Faith Series." This time, Faith and her family return to Scotland, where she hopes to learn more about their heritage, and come to grips with her more unique abilities. That aspect of her journey, alone, is enough to cause trepidation, but, upon arriving, events unfold that make this trip anything but a simple spiritual quest. She and her family face loss of life and danger from an unknown source. They, with the help of her boyfriend, Boston Homicide Detective Ed Sinclair, have to ferret out who would do them harm. The tile is The Origin of Faith. and you can look for it on Amazon in 2018.
After the Ivy
Both paperback and kindle versions of After the Ivy, the third and final installment in the Ivy Mystery Series are now available on Amazon!
