I’ve had a few people ask me about the next book in the Keno Deane/Teensie Henderson series, so I’ll give you a bit of a teaser here.
Flowers From the Flames begins in 1965. Keno and Teensie (now known as Grace) have both turned 18. For those of us of a certain age, 1965 was a year to be remembered. The Vietnam war was in full swing. If you went to San Francisco, you wore a flower in your hair. People sometimes went off to live in communes, and experimented with hallucinogenic drugs. If you liked something, it was “cool,” or “groovy.” Women were called “chicks” and didn’t mind.
So, what does all this have to do with Keno and Grace? Well, anyone who lived in the sixties was at least aware of what was going on in the world, and we were affected. Those opposed to the war sometimes fled to Canada, or went to jail rather than fight. Keno and Grace both have a “fella,” one of whom will fight, and the other not. You’ll meet some folks again that you met in the first two books, and there will be some new characters, too.
it will be interesting to watch these two young women grow into adulthood in a turbulent time. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, don’t forget to order Keno Deane and the Trouble With Teensie, and Becoming Grace from amazon.com or your favorite bookseller. They’re available on Kindle, too.
Now, having said that, I should tell you that as of this date, June 20th, Becoming Grace is not quite ready. Almost! The proof has arrived and has been edited. Now it just needs to go back to the publisher for the final print. I’ll post again when it’s ready to purchase.
And if you like my books, would you do me a favor and give it a favorable review on amazon? I’d appreciate it!
Oh yes, and don’t forget to “follow” my blog!
