Hale “Follow the frogs…” My cats Rupert and Isabella didn’t need a note telling them to follow the frogs. When the green intruders first began appearing in the antiques shop I had inherited from my Uncle Oscar, my feline friends instantly gave chase. But why were frogs also turning up in San Francisco’s City Hall building? And what did my late uncle’s mysterious note to follow them mean? Before long I would be caught up in the chase myself, along with a crazy crew of my uncle’s oddball friends—as well as his oldest enemy, a master of disguise. With rumors of hidden gold, political conspiracies, faked deaths, and cold- blooded betrayal in the air, I had to try hard not to leap to any conclusions until my kitties and I uncovered the truth, warts and all… A lively book filled with quirky characters and interesting tidbits of San Francisco history.

So you are probably all wondering why on Earth I would ever want to become a writer. For those of you who are non-writers, let me tell you a little secret: publishing is slow. Even in the world of ebooks, you have to wait for a response on your submission, wait for edits, wait for second round of edits, and then wait for your release. That’s if you’re lucky. Quite often your manuscript will get rejected, so you will have to revise and resubmit it somewhere else where the process starts all over again. Nothing about this industry is fast….
