Hidden Chamber of Death is a compelling tale of intrigue, murder, deception and suspense that leads retired Navy SEAL/part-time private investigator Craige Ingram in search of the connection between seemingly random murders and a banking conspiracy.
Working with the local homicide investigator, who just happens to be a former Navy buddy, Craige Ingram’s attempts to protect a lonely widow and solve the case before another person dies are only thwarted by a psychotic killer whose motivation is based on pure depraved pleasure. In this first book of the MOCCASIN HOLLOW MYSTERY SERIES, the instincts and skills Ingram and his buddy acquired as Navy SEALS are tested to their limits.

What helps overcome writer’s block?
Give the manuscript a rest; give your brain/fantasy/imagination a rest. Part of that being put the working draft away. Work on something else; let the ‘bother’ sit on the shelf WITH your notepad forever handy. Stuff your mind/imagination/characters & plot on another work you’re puzzling together or want to start.
Do you listen to music when you write and if so, what kind of music – or do you find it distracts you?
Depends on my mood…sometimes it proves distracting. The great classics are great gifts. Tales told with heart & soul & enjoyment…Chopin, Beethoven, Sibelius, Smetana’s Má vlast, the great Russian composers, from the romantic period/The Beach Boys/ABBA. When I lining up the boxcars of the tale, most often there’s no doorbell, no phones, no music.
