Writing In Retirement

I've had a few requests to learn more about the novels I'm writing. Presently, I'm marketing a political, called Standing Firm. In it, a third political party rises in America, a conservative Christian party, and a congressman from Oklahoma runs as its first presidential candidate. The story is about the campaign, told through the eyes of his wife and the candidate himself.

The novel follows the candidate's wife, through a nasty campaign filled with an assassination attempt and international intrigue. She provides the stability to play off his crusader, "I can win against all odds," attitude. Will see how editors react to it. I'm working on three other novels, and I'll review those in future posts.
