Greetings. Wherever you are in the world, I hope you and those you love are safe. So far, 2021 has been a rollercoaster, hasnâ€™t it? But amid the chaos of extreme weather, there are some bright spots. Recently in the UK, a photographer spotted a couple in the middle of a marriage proposal. Instead of minding his own business, he decided to take a series of photos that turned out to be stunning. You can check out the story here.
Speaking of screenplays, my wife and I found this while going through some old boxes. I wrote Killers for the boys at The Asylum in the late nineties. Of all the things Iâ€™ve done, working with these gentlemen is still the best experience of my professional life. Thanks, fellas.

Iâ€™ve got one other piece of news. I finally published Sarah Greene Mysteries Books 1â€“3 as a box set called The Darkness Trilogy. If youâ€™re new to this series and enjoy supernatural horror, be sure to check it out.
