The last few nights I have been writing less and researching more. I am learning that the writing process is a simple one really: write, write, write. Writer's block disappears in the face of plowing on.
Cooper is changing somewhat these days as the distance lengthens between his son's kidnapping and the present day. The frustration of the search is wearing on him.
Cooper's Moon is really a story about a philosophy professor at a small liberal arts college in Ohio whose son is kidnapped one morning while he is teaching, an event that changes his life dramatically. His wife leaves him, he quits his job, and he becomes a detective so he can focus on finding his son.
Everything that happens after that is driven by that single event, the kidnapping of Maxie.

Blood Moon Rising, Cooper's second in his trilogy, will be out at the end of March, maybe sooner! It's even better than the first ~ Cooper gets closer and closer to solving the mystery of his son's disappearance.
One review from Jack Driscoll, award winning author of Lucky Man, Lucky Woman
"The novel is so richly cinematic that I read it while simultaneously imagining each of the chapters and scenes playing out on the silver screen... the suspense high-tension from beginning to end."
"Lovers of the genre will find much to keep them engrossed. The author successfully raises tension with gripping descriptions and emotional dialogue,"
