Rain, rain, and more rain. This is Southern California, people. I thought it never rained in Southern California. I guess that means I'm in for the night, so I may as well make the most of it, right? Sure. Like I need an excuse to write. I must admit, I do love weather like today. Not just for the fact that it reminds me of home, the South West of England, which, after almost 13 years, I miss more than ever, but for the fact that it helps me to get focused. Murder is not a lighthearted subject about which to write, even when it's fiction. With the usual blistering weather out here, and the sun tapping on my windows, inviting me to come out and play, it's hard to find a reason to stay inside. I want more dark days like today, with rain lashing my windows, and black clouds hovering overhead. Thunder and lightening. Now we're talking.

So, if you'll excuse me, I have work to do. I'm entering chapter five of Hide and Seek, my third mystery suspense. Cue the thunder.....
