It’s Here!Cover for Deep Trouble

When Senior moments become dangerous.  
Vic Gardner is an independent 60-something heroine who can’t keep out of trouble.  And it’s not like she doesn’t have help.
Her nephew in California disappears, her sister-in-law insists it’s Vic’s job to find him.
Her upstairs neighbor’s tub overflows, again.
Her ex stops over with another marriage proposal and a mysterious warning,   
And her manicurist found a clue to an 18th-century female artist that could be the discovery of the decade.
Can she find her nephew without a trip to California?
Who else is looking for this artist and her work?
Why does she have to be married at all?
And which is worse, trespassing or being buried alive?   
Vic is in deep trouble.

Drinks @ the Last Café
A Girl who lived in the back of a theater
A Mad Man who abandoned Wall Street
A Drummer from a band long dead
All moving west across a ravaged country
To where dreams catch in the tide and wash back
A blank verse poem about what happens
after the end of the world
