    “Wives Who Kill” - Sophie and Hannah: Two women with different backgrounds, different circumstances, and different mindsets. Yet, both are wanted for murder. What made them do it? Court-appointed forensic psychologist Dr. Rosie Klein untangles the web of circumstances surrounding each violent crime . . . and much more!
    At the recommendation of the judges and attorneys who appoint her to the cases, Dr. Klein first evaluates Sophie's case, then Hannah's state of mind at the time the women committed their separate crimes. Her search for mitigating factors, and her recommendations, will assist the Court during the sentencing phase of each woman's trial. Or should their charges of murder be commuted . . .based on what Dr. Rosie finds?
    You be the judge after you read the reasons behind Wives Who Kill.

    Writer's Block and What To Do About It.

    Writer's Block and What To Do About It.

    Writers' block is real, and it came at me with a vengeance, cloaked in what I thought was celebratory excitement at the point I released my thriller novel manuscript to beta readers. When I mustered the courage to face the truth, paralysis was poised to take control. I had to change my thoughts, my emotions, my mind. Listen to my strategies to address a personal variety of writer’s block.
    My next novel, a thriller entitled "Claim Denied" is coming soon. Email me at Diann@DiannAbroad.com for an advanced copy and/or for launching information.  
    "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron (Three morning pages.) Note, I reference writing three morning pages but, to be clear, I didn't include it as a strategy for improving tennis ... only for addressing my writer's block.  
    "Short Tarot-Centered Meditation for Artists to Overcome Writing Fear" by Thea Fiore-Bloom (Scroll down to the middle of the page to find this meditation.)
    "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield.
    Intro and outgo music: "The Amelia Island Sun" by Rafael Javadov
    Interlude music: "Headache" by Dream Machine
