Research for Latest Book

I’ve started on my new novel. So many readers want to know what happens to Malie from ‘Moose Rides and Wedding Rings’ that I’ve decided to tell her story. Right now she is managing a saloon in Dawson City, Yukon. It’s in the late 1940s. The town is growing and bringing family type people into town, which is bringing unwanted attention to the local saloons and the women who work there.

I needed to know how the Yukon handled ladies of the night. Turns out it isn’t illegal. I was surprised to find that out. I find it strange that it is illegal in most of the U.S. states, yet marijuana is becoming legal. Where’s the logic in that. Anyway, as usual, I’m really enjoying working with Malie and creating new characters, like the new Canadian Mounted Police Constable assigned to Dawson. More to come!

I got some feedback today on ‘Moose Rides …’ Turns out the reader really liked the book, but didn’t like Kathleen, one of the main characters. Said she seemed pitiful. Love hearing how my readers feel about my books.
