Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin

Music has always been a part of my life. With my father being the pastor of our local church, I was singing and playing the guitar in front of people at an early age. Ironically enough, and of course secretly because my dad would have had a cow, I loved listening to Janis Joplin as a kid. I know that is pretty old school, but I did. She had an amazing voice and talent. Her influence on what I write musically is huge and so I decided to pay a little homage here to her on my blog. I’m still waiting to see if she is going to join the slew and crew of famous ghosts who seem to turn up in my life, (along with a dead body here and there of the not so famous, causing me to seek help from my ghostly friends to bring justice to the victims of such dastardly crimes), but so far she hasn’t come around. We shall see.

Here are some quotes by Janis Joplin that I love:

“Don’t compromise yourself, you are all you got.”

“I’m one of those regular weird people.” (Boy can I relate to that).

And my favorite:

“Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers. You can fill your life up with ideas and still go home lonely. All you really have that really matters are feelings. That’s what music is to me.”

    When will the next book come out in this series? The Grey Tier is an excellent book. Could not put the book down until I had completed it.

      The next book is in works right now, but exact date is not finalized yet, it is very hard to pin down a release date when a book is in the early stages. The good news is it is being written!

    I loved this book and I can’t wait for you to do the follow up. Evie Preston is a great character and I love her ghostly lover. There just has to be a second half to this story. Once I started reading it, I coundn’t put it down. My opinion is that it is a must read for all mystery romance lovers. I give it three thumbs up!!!
