LIKE SKATES THROUGH THE HOURGLASS... (AS THE DAYS SKATE?)
As soon as the weather starts to turn nippy, thoughts turn to Winter. Which means Winter Sports. Which means, specifically, figure skating.
This winter, skating is particularly uppermost in my mind as I am in the process of re-releasing my Figure Skating Mystery series, originally published by Berkley Prime Crime, as enhanced e-books, with skating videos embedded alongside the text as part of the story.
The first novel, Murder on Ice, is a (very) thinly disguised take on the 2002 Olympic judging scandal. Only in my version, the judge who cast the unpopular vote and gave the gold to Russia over the West turns up dead soon after.
Who done it? A skater? A coach? An official? A fan? (Hopefully, I did a good job of laying out the clues!)
Of course, as regular readers of this blog know, my first love is soap operas. Which is what led me to the absolutely, LOL, hysterical clip below.
Days of Our Lives' John and Marlena explain the judging scandal (complete with trademark flaring nostrils, negligees, and pregnant pauses)! You must watch this!
