My wife, God bless her, fixed the computer. It was the BACKUP hard drive that had failed. She did a lobotomy on the thing and bam! Started right up.

It’s a NaNoWriMo miracle!

I’m on track. The beat goes on.

During the football today they showed an ad for one of the DNA companies where the guy is talking about how he always thought he was a Chinese and he loved his Chinese culture and celebrated it and married a Chinese woman and had Chinese kids, but then his DNA kit came back and it showed he was really an ostrich.

My PC died. It’s the hard drive. I’m going to fall way behind and probably not win NaNoWriMo this year, but I won’t give up.

Western Terminus - a NaNoWriMo Story

Western Terminus - Writing Underway

Rookie FBI Special Agent Elias Tucker is the son of Liberian immigrants and he's living his American Dream. He graduated from Brown and turned his attention to the law. His first assignment with the Bureau is the Phoenix satellite office in Cochise County, Arizona, just a short drive from the Mexican border. His work involves the cross-border drug trade, missing persons, and tracking foreign nationals who have entered the country illegally. 

Out in the red Western desert, he's a fish out of water. Adjusting to the culture and pace of life on the American frontier will take time, but time isn't something he has.

A string of mysterious disappearances among migrant communities has shocked the locals, but the brass seem unconcerned. What's happened to them? Where did they go? And how does it relate to the unusually high number of retirements and medical leaves being taken among lifers in DC?

A never-ending wave of Central American caravans. Disappearing politicians.  A mystery epidemic. A wonder drug. And a green FBI agent named Elias Tucker who won't take no for an answer. Can he solve the mystery before time runs out? And will the truth die with him?
