I near the car and really the biggest person i'd ever seen in my entire life could auto the passenger side front door net limo and absolute giant man.

Castellano was gunned down by john guy in new york city and guide. You took over control of that ticket with family. Following patriarch is death. Raymond junior took the reins of the new england crime family but was considered a weak leader by comparison. Those are some pretty big shoes to fill right. The boston faction they smelled opportunity to take rest power from providence. A mob war ignited following the death of raymond. Ls patriarca and there were people that were aligned closely with raymond junior patriarca. That were dying. Raymond junior decided now would be a good time to try and bring the family together. And in his words let-bygones-be-bygones he was trying to not only remain empower. But not get killed. Raymond junior decided to induct four new members into the patriarca crime family three from boston. And one from rhode island. The infamous ceremony took place in medford massachusetts on october. Twenty ninth nineteen eighty-nine. They tried to just pick sort of a random home that had a connection with an associate of the crime family connection with somebody who is being sworn into the crime family that day. But it's this blue collar. Working class neighborhood is a suburb of boston. Just north of boston. No one would think that a mob induction ceremony happening in the arab. Unfortunately raymond junior patriarca. The fbi had the screws to somebody that knew about the induction ceremony and actually drove raymond. Patriarca there So the fbi was well aware of what was going on even worse for the patriarca crime. Family an fbi agent lived three houses down from where the induction ceremony was to take place posing as telephone workers. The fbi bugged the house located on guild street in medford. The family that was living. There went up to new hampshire and so the house was empty for portion of time. They went in there and they put it in hidden microphones and again. This is one thousand. Nine technology is what it is. They literally ran a wire from that home. Three houses up to the fbi agents house and then the fbi staked out of house across the street where the the fbi agent was friendly with the people across the street so they could take pictures as people were coming going. The hidden microphone captured the first known recording of a mob induction ceremony. It was history in the making and it had everything from taking the oath of omerta in sicilian burning. The card of the saint the patron saint of the patriarca crime family in their hand pricking their trigger finger on that everything that you you now think about from the hollywood version of an induction ceremony.

"Previously on mafia following the retirement of felipo bukoba in nineteen fifty. Two raymond patriarca was promoted to boss so the new england crime family. He became a dominant force. An all elicits political and labor union activities. He didn't have this being physical presence but he had the big presence in the community. People were more likely to turn to raymond patriarca or one of his members than they were to call the cops like complaints. Like i said he was like the godfather the digitally patriarca gained solid connections to the five families and the commission. He had the respect of new york. There are the five crime families in new york city and very easily. Any one of them could have tried to control the rackets. The gambling operations prostitution the drug trade in new england. They are the most powerful crime families in the country in the late. Nineteen fifties raymond patriarca appeared before the mcclellan committee on labor racketeering and received national attention as he's being questioned about senators about like. Hey man. what's your real job. You know everyone says the mob and of course. He denies that and took issue with that. He took no shit from lawmakers down in washington. He fired right back. That almost catapulted his legendary status when he was on that national stage after years of trying to infiltrate the new england crime family. The fbi finally succeeded. When joe barboza a hitman for patriarca became an informant raymond patriarca would be imprisoned in nineteen sixty nine but his greatest heist was yet to come. Jakko was He was very much controlled when he did. This is mafia raymond. Patriarca was released from federal prison in one thousand nine hundred seventy four following a five year sentence for the murder of providence. Bookmaker willie mar fail tim. White investigative reporter for wpri tv in providence and co author of the last good heist discusses patriot family frustrations during this time. He felt that while he was in prison. His soldiers his the made members of the crime family and associates say weren't paying enough tribute to him and he was pissed off about it and he wanted to send a message to everyone that he was in power while i was away in prison. You didn't show me the respect that you needed to show and he was also greedy and he was approached by the very powerful in scary ruthless. Murderers faction of organized crime called the woman faction according to a nineteen seventy-nine fbi document the willamette faction was involved in gambling loansharking. Extortion and major robberies. John matt had learned of this secret. Ma bank if you will that that was in the heart of this old factory building. Call it the factory building but it's a first storage facility and a first storage facility to me is such a nineteen seventies rhode island thing where people in the summer. They would store their furs in this climate controlled building. It's actually still in operation today and they would also do for repairs and and things like that so just hearken back to a little bit of a different time..

"Hollywood directors and producers being accused of sexual harassment in the workplace in recent years and the uprising of the metoo movement. I ask raymond if she ever felt uncomfortable at work. Because of a man's advances or comments a little bit you know. I've always been sort of headstrong as far as like not putting much stock in that Wearing what. I want to wear doing what i wanna do. Not worrying about looking feminine or trying to be like a man. I just kind of always had sort of strange center confidence But yeah of course you do but up against it you see it happen to other people you try to. And once you get into management have the added Sort of responsibility sometimes getting into conversations with people And trying to make sure that doesn't happen on your set or how to solve it And there's been instances especially in some of these larger stunt driven shows. They're very a lot of men in the room. I mean there were instances where there were twelve of us all making decisions and i was the only female And that's fine You know you know it. It sometimes feels a little lopsided and but honestly i you know for whatever reason I just i just never let it get to my head. And i was fortunate enough not to have any sort of bad interactions personally With with anyone in there's always a little bit of that. Underlying ryan says the instances of inappropriate behavior. She witnessed where less often onset and usually in the office. There's someone who's making comments to someone else that might feel inappropriate or there are You know in a couple. Instances there were older men and younger women and there were there. Were comments made to people that the younger women didn't feel comfortable with and how you delicately go in there and try to try to stop that from happening in educating honestly people who who have maybe grown up in a time where these things weren't as As something that you talked about his match or tried to solve it was just like. Oh that's just you know whoever doing whatever they do you know and and now there's a lot more consciousness as a mother of two young ladies Who that that's just not acceptable and so Those are those conversations are an enjoyable.

"Providence rhode island by nineteen thirty two. Both families would combine and become a force to be reckoned with. I think the thing to really understand contemptuously. About the mob in new england is it truly acted as a secondary government and that is not hyperbole. They had cops in their pockets. They had judges in their pockets. They really ran a big part of the economy in new england and they had a really truly negative impact on society here. Businesses had to pay protection payments in order to operate how those payments passed on passed on to the consumer. They were course murders happening. And don't believe the lies that they weren't involved in narcotics say absolutely revolved narcotics anyway. They could make money. They did it over time. The new england crime family would become synonymous with one cunning and ruthless leader. Raymond patrika ran a very tight. Ship was smart. He was very much in control of what he people were. More likely to turn to raymond patriarca or one of his members than they were to call the cops because they knew that or they felt that any way they probably get a better result in faster result by going to the mob boss than by going to law enforcement but one concealed microphone by the fbi would reveal all patriarch.

It's sort of a respite in a wages from From from the from the conflict and the back and forth in a place just sit back and enjoy some stories that make people feel good about being a human being and about being an american fatherless-ness seems to be a common denominator in almost every societal. Ill we're seeing today. The statistics on kids. Who grow up without fathers are really grim. Ninety percent of homeless and runaways are fatherless eighty-five percent of kids with behavioral disorders eighty five percent of youths in prison. Explain the connection between absent. Fathers and incarceration that found while researching and writing this film. Well look what you find out quickly. And we learned from these three guys and their stories reflect almost all of the stories. Look a father served. So many purposes one is to protect the kids and other provider but the other thing is this model for how we channel our masculinity how channel are masculine impulses to start thrown running through our bodies in our veins. When we're young men. How do we channel some channels. Sometimes the natural propensity to aggression. There are beautiful ways to productively channel these things but if we don't have a father in the home raymond who do we model ourselves after so what happens with these boys is a when they have no fathers. They're angry they don't know why it's an inchoate. Anger the abandonment issues or a dad. Who just mean they're angry lot. God what did i do to deserve this by the way this separates them from god right. How do you get the father without a father and the next natural step. Raymond is an older man. In a gang coming to a thirteen year old and grooming him to join a place where he gets belonging protection and camaraderie and love. And that is how the gangs work and in the end the boys learn masculine tendencies and masculine behavior from gangs..

Obviously, if we're comparing to season the last year this year, it's not too different. I think it's just the the difficulties and adversities, we're facing are coming in a different point of year.

Ellis raymond is an author editor and youtuber from portland maine. She was former tricuspid. Intrigues you and other heart defects for which he underwent three surgeries. Before the age of three margaret's length of stories started early when her mother placed her a friend of a tape recorder to tell stories. It was her way of occupying the talkative child while she got ready for her day. Her love of stories helped her to overcome reading difficulties and by fifth break. She began to tackle chapter books as an adult. Margaret has written a series of three books for young children and started a youtube channel about tricuspid attrition to educate herself and others.

She also hopes to self publish. An anthology of essays written by c. hd patients their friends and family as well as those into the hd medical field. Welcome to heart to heart with anna margaret. Allan thank you so much for having me truly grateful for this opportunity to share my story. I know this is so much fun that i want to start talking about your heart defect. Tell us a little bit more abacha heart. Like how old you were when you heard to diagnosed and if you have any memories of your surgeries hospitalizations. I was diagnosed in utera. With trump has patricia. My mom tells me the story. When i ask. She usually doesn't share stories unless i ask her. But the ultrasound technician told my mom that she was going to take one quick. Look at my heart and then the appointment would be over well as you can imagine. That quick look turned into a very long look an extra technician in the room and a follow up appointment for the eventual tight. Notice of try casper detroit. So yeah it was kinda weird. Though i mean one quick look was she suspecting something or was this just like okay. We've looked at everything else. Now let's just look at the heart do looked at everything else. Let's just look at the heart and then you'll be good to go. She really wasn't expected to see anything. Bad no no everything else looks fine. They were like okay you. Yeah and actually the same age as your son. So i was born in nineteen ninety four. Yeah i had ultrasounds gene but my tech wasn't as good as yours. They didn't pick anything up. So your poor mom Yeah yeah it was a lot. I mean the way my mom described it was that she was on the examination bed. And you know the technician was like oh just take one quick your baby's heart and my mom just said she was lingering in this one spot for really long time and my mom kept looking at her and then looking at my father. They were like what's going on. What are you seeing. And they eventually asked that question and the technician was like hold on. I need to get a second opinion and she called someone else in and then that technician who had been in the industry for really long time said yup. I think we know with this is what we need. A doctor's look and so they scheduled another follow up appointment. And that's when the diagnosis was made for parents. Had to wait They look at the speed. We are definitely had no idea. They knew it was something with the heart but they were like. We don't know i think it was two or three days before they could have that appointment which is torture. Yeah yeah definitely. I'm glad your mom your dad there because a lot of times we go to our ultrasounds without her husband's especially ambitious routine ultrasound. Yeah yeah yeah. that's that's how it was diagnosed. And i actually interviewed my mom on my youtube channel for mother's day last year. And she shared that story and several others what it was like to go through all three surgeries. That eventually saved my life. Yeah yeah absolutely. If you were born the same year that alex was you probably also had your surgery soon after birth. Yeah yeah so. My understanding is thought. The time line was just a couple of days after i was born. They did the first surgery and then the second surgery was. i believe. it's six months and the third surgery was a little after two or close to three. I actually have video on my youtube channel back. Goes through what tricuspid tree jay is and then all the surgeries that is specifically had done. And then i explain what they did in each of those surgeries with images explanations. You have really become quite the advocate. Chu yeah yeah. It wasn't always that way. But yes so. All of my surgeries were completed under the age of four. And the truth is that i remember very little. Before the age of seven so majority of people experience something called childhood nisha which is the inability to recall certain childhood memories before the age of usually four. And since i don't really recall much until the age of seven my thought is that i basically blocked out my early memories because they were too painful even the ones wet five six and seven just because i must have had residual fear of some kind and what's remained is the emotional response to anything medical and that's very much fuelled by my time in the hospital and the stories that i could share such as the time that i farted. And the monitor all went crazy and my grandmother thought something horrible had happened while she was in the room. Most of those stories are not my memories. They are stories that someone told me over and over and over again. They've been ingrained in me. But i don't actually remember them. So no i. I don't really remember anything from surgeries other than that. Residual fear that bubbles. Up whenever i think of anything medical related. Wow yeah it's interesting. First person. I've talked to and i've done a lot of interviews obviously done over three hundred. You're the first person to talk to me about childhood amnesia. Is this something that you looked up as you started to become a stronger advocate for yourself. Yes so actually. I was a psychology major in college. So yes i have that background and childhood. Amnesia is more common than you would think. And i think it throws people because of the title childhood amnesia. Like oh you hit your head. No the majority of people can't remember memories before the age of three and since most people who have see hd have surgeries before the age of three and for me. It.

Jim this is like the top grossing film of the year and also did quite welford self in oscars nominated for eight one three and it made like a billion times is budget not bad. Not bad Is directed by barry levinson which you might recognize from his work on the natural. Good morning vietnam wag. The dog and sleepers is written by barry morrow and ronald bass. Maybe ronald bass. I didn't look that up. Shoot just realized which we'll talk about. We'll talk a little bit. More about barry morrow when we start talking about the impact of the of the film had on this subject matter Stars of course. Dustin hoffman as raymond ray babbitt and it stars. Tom cruise is his brother. Charlie and also val area go lino. Who i'd only known as the hot funny girl from hotshots and hotshots part do as a remember her from them. She's actually. she's playing italian in this movie. So gotcha and i wondered if like what happened to her because she was in these big movies in the eighties and i looked through her Like imdb and some does just one thing after another match kept trying to work on both sides of the pond and one contract would interfere with another contract and then that would fall through and that was delayed and she liked it. Seemed like ten years relied. Click by and so. It's a shame in a lot of big movies like the. I'm not saying this was a big movie. But she went to rainman right after big top pee wee which you know not the best. But she's in like you said she was in leaving las vegas. She was in escape from la. She was leaving las vegas. Apparently playing someone named terry jesus. We just saw that movie. And i did not. I didn't did not really must've been a minor role

He was involved with in one thousand nine thirty two charged with committing armed robbery down in massachusetts. It was a bank but the witnesses refused idea which is pretty common in these mafia cases as you guys know. He was becoming so well known by the middle thirties. That providence police had a list of criminals that they called public enemies and they could arrest him on sight and bring him in for at least a few hours and they used to do that. I even up into the fifties sometime into the middle sixties passing civil rights legislation. I remember looking up these guys records in and they would say arrested for suspicious activities. Hold for twenty four hours. Now the providence rhode island mafia family. There was two families in that area bought a boston. Which close and providence now for the providence family during the turn of the century said before many sicilians emigrated to the federal hill area. And they brought the black hand mafia with them in nineteen seventeen. A man named frank morelli. They called the betsy. I got the nickname bussey. But betsy morelli moved providence.

Nineteen twenty braintree massachusetts. Robbery were Saccone vans eddie were probably improperly charged and convicted and were sent to the electric chair. I believe during those years. Most people would consider frank morelli to be the face of the buffy in providence. Rhode island the boston family at the same time. There was a two separate messina. And joseph lombardo who were the kind of the early bosses of what they considered the entire new england area and they based out of boston during the castel.

Another man named felipo makola arrived in boston from palermo. Sicily now joan. I'm mardo will never really become the permanent boss. A will never really rise higher than the underboss and makola Will be come. The boss of boston now. I believe at this time. The boston family was kind of like the big brother over.

And certainly two thousand. One it's just. As soon as i saw in college. They released it in the seventy s. When i was in college and the mid to late seventies and i went to this theater and so they had it in seventy millimeter. Which was stated your. At that time. I went to see at once and i go. I gotta seat again this way. And i've seen it and then i was just totally engrossed in the movie and like the making of two thousand and one. I had to find out how they did it. I loved it. I mean they did. Some of the special effects in an abandoned corset factory. I love stuff like that. But it's a great movie. And i found out what everything was shot. And how they put everything together and how the actress came on the project and everything and it's the movie still holds up incredibly. Well you know it's yeah there's no moonbase in two thousand one but but still it's really more of a first contact story told in a way that we've never seen before a very sort of some people interpreted it to be very religious film. Kind of just depends on how you look at it. You know you interpret aliens or are they got or what you know you know it. Just it he left it up to the audience to decide you know what is movie about. Oh yeah and then. That's the brilliant. I mean people have different Ways of of seeing it absolutely. That's actually interesting because if you look. At hearth saint clark's novels a lot of his seat themes almost border on religious terms. It's really interesting so he was able to do that in such a way. In in couch in science fiction that really made it so different and provocative. I really liked the way he wrote. And you know they're both gone unfortunately and But the movie still holds up. And i would love to see them re release it on the big screen again and really do it up again. It certainly deserves. They did in two thousand one. I know i know that.

It's great to talk to you and be on the show. I really have enjoyed your work in the past. And i'm really happy that you're involved with not the novel that you did a novelization for metal gear solid. I think the challenge of that is huge. Essentially you're taking a video game and making it into a novelization form. How did that project come together. And how did you attack. well All thanks for having me on the show secondly to answer your question I was I was approached by Hideo kojima enough who designed the original game He apparently had a short list of authors. That he wanted to do it. And i guess he was a pan of my bond work because it had been published in japan and he He konami and delray. The publishers us had an agreement together to do the books so They asked me. If i'd be interested and i thought about i sure why not you know. I was somewhat a fan of the game My son played it all the time. You know i would watch him play. It and i was interested in a video game designer. Well a computer game designer back in the late eighties and early nineties. So you know it wasn't a completely foreign medium for me Now i had already written some movie novelization. In fact i am i. I'm a one of the founding members of the international association of media tie in writers which is an organization of writers who do a lot of novelization b. movies or tv or games. or whatever. And so i you know there is a there is a a forum to it. There is an art to doing it and It's it's not an easy thing to describe. I mean i would just say that A lot of its intuition. A lot of it is taking the source material laying out in front of you and breaking it down into what would basically be chapters of the books and the gone from there. Now you use to the this is based on the nineteen ninety eight storyline of the game. That came out at that. Time right the first game. Okay so So that must have been easy. At least you're not you know trying to tie everything together. Up to this point i would. That would take more than one novel. Obviously all right yeah. Yeah the planet that there hopefully will be a series of novels. We're talking about doing the second one. Now which is called sons of liberty. What amazes me is that nobody has done this as a film yet. Well i think they're probably talking about it. I don't know. I don't know what konami is plans. Are they kind of keep it close to the vest. But i'm sure that they're they're probably thinking along those lines you happy with the way things turned out after it was all done. Yeah you know it's it was fun The characters are interesting. And engaging it's you know it's very I mean it has a very much a sort of japanese mangled kind of sensibility to it. the characters are kind of fantastic with lots of Sort of extra extra abilities. And you know i just had fun with it. And i you know as long as konami and the publishers were pleased. And i'm pleased. He were intended to try to steer which stay away from that. You pretty much decided to embrace that part of what they came was. Yeah yeah absolutely and and you know. I was pretty had to be pretty faithful to the game. I couldn't go often to into uncharted territory or anything. Any new stuff that i added to the book was had to be approved of course by kojima sons. So everything in it is has gotten the seal of approval by by the man themselves. So it's it's official with the canon the canon piece go well they may convey saints cannon his cannon so there you go that's awesome so so this time you are planning the second one. Have you gotten the green light for that yet. Well we're they're they're sort of negotiating with the and And i guess you know. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and sounds like it's going to happen but you know i can't really say for sure. Does anything can happen. But i'm pretty sure it will. Will you be doing all the series or are they going to bring you know okay. I don't know it's just doing them one at a time so you have a hard day's death i. There is something appealing to me about. Kind of like a rock and roll investigator kinda p. I kinda liked it. Yeah well that that's a much more closer to the to my heart. It's a much more. I mean it is a it's mine. It's an original sure novel. Yes spike barringer the rock and roll. Detective is he is a guy who runs a security firm in new york city for Rock and roll and the like. But he's also a private eye. And i've skewed the rock and roll world to be a very dangerous place. So there's lots of murders and kidnappings in black mailings and illegal downloading and spike has to sort all of that out doesn't sound too far from the truth and you know he. They're the real rockstars you know. We'll make cameo appearances all through the books. And i've already written the second one cool. It'll it'll come out next spring.

"Welcome back to american billiard radio. Today is friday november twentieth and in news. We all expected this was coming it. Actually the the news came down today. That the twenty twenty one derby city classic was officially canceled due to covid nineteen. Keep in mind that is cancelled postponed. I spoke to greg sometime last week. And he had said that he was going to hear something this week from the state and was hoping that when they announced what they were going to do that they would be able to announce it has a postponement but he felt that he needed to have a date in mind. I'm guessing since he didn't have a date in mind. This was announced as a cancellation long-shot. Maybe something get scheduled for later in the year. And that's not due to anything that i've heard i'm just thinking you know if this thing starts to clear up. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to run something later in the year in other news. The pool tour had their twenty twenty virginia state eight ball championship. Two separate divisions men and women the men's division. Mike davis one. No big surprise there. The ladies division was won by. Liz taylor which again is not really a surprise. What was newsworthy. Was the second place finisher in each division. Shane wolford finished. Second to mike davis in the men's division and his sister savannah wolford finished second in the ladies division. I think most fans are more familiar with shane's game. Shane wolford's game but it sounds like savanna is quite an up and coming player. All the way over on the west coast arizona. The arizona women's billiards tour ray evans and brian holloway. They won the the traditional. Awb t jack and jill scotch doubles event. They holded every year as their final event of the year. It's kind of a half a tournament and half a party to celebrate the year. it doesn't sound like there was a whole lot of celebration based on the small season but it also sounds like they had a great time in other news. The sunshine state pro ampoule tour held their sunshine. State pro-am tour bar box championship. That was at racks. Billiards in sanford florida. In the winter circle was a name that most fans no raymond. raymond z. three time. acu. I collegiate champion. He's also won the apa amateur championships now. Those winds were four five six seven years ago. raymond's name is has popped up a little bit recently. But this was his his first big win. Had a chance to talk to raymond This week and i asked him about this. This first big singles win for him. Yeah this is the first big singles outright tournament. Win for me in a while I've had some some big matches. That one in the last couple years here in there when i peeked in and had some good performances against some good players. But you know this is the first i guess bigger noteworthy event. I guess in a while. What was also interesting with raymond. Was he credited this win to finally taking time out of his scheduled to get together with mark wilson. He elaborated on that. So mark mark had invited me to go to linden would for A few years it had been several years..

"raymond" Discussed on Word Play with Kristine Raymond

"Nonfiction I read a lot of books that aren't romance. So it just whatever happens how I feel that day on my my kindle is. So so very you think it belong to three or four different people so o mine's the same way. And you know, I think I think it's that way for a lot of readers out there. You know, as authors were kind of kind of drilled into us to, you know, find your audience and find that niche of romance readers or erotic readers or might. I really believe that readers are open to a lot of different John rose. Just because they re romance doesn't mean they don't read horror or SCI fi or rata or Christian or anything else? And. Oh, oh, yeah. I know that's. Certainly believe that as new to the publishing world. I you know, you hear that, you know, you you've got to find your niche audience. I think and how I'm not sure because I'm such a broad audience. And I'm thinking, why do I have to stick to one thing? So so that's been a little conflicting away when you hear that you think that I have so many stories in the and they're not the same. Right. Exactly. Yeah. I that's the challenge for me too. And I I like to think that I just pick up readers who like me as an author. They like the way I write regardless of whether I'm writing historical, western romance or Roddick drama or contemporary, or you know, now, I'm working on cozy mystery. So I'm hoping that my readers like the author as much as they want a specific thing that I write, you know, you'll have those people who who only read historical western. So those will be the only ones that that read hint springs, and they might not come over to my celebration series in the same thing with you. You might have find readers who really only stick to Arado. So they'll be reading the love strictly tested series might go into the heart series. Right. Oh, yeah. I am. I completely understand that because you know, because they're very specific in that sense. But don't people just aren't are interested in that type some 'cause they're the heat Lowell is is very high. And and I get that. And but I think though so much whether you right in the Saint, John or something if you keep if you write in different ones that you still have personal style. People can tell it you. Yes. So whether they like that type they may just like your style. So hopefully, you know that kind of works and people you, right? Follow you because of how you right and not necessarily. Maybe the the silence are mean the topic is. Self and I've had people that I know of my heart theories. And but I know they haven't read that the most likely to drill, and I'm okay with that. Because you know, I'm perfectly fine because there's more both of those come. So either way. So, you know, I'm going to add onto the other one the heart theory. So there's something else for those people. And then I have other ones that will that will pop up. So I still think, you know, whether you like ones there is not I'll still have something there. Right. Something to offer. Well, do you have other John rose that you've ever kind of toyed with the idea of writing in? I have finally worked out as Fred sheet 'cause I'm not terribly organized person. But I did make you have all these ideas in your head. But oh, I remember that. But then, you know, you don't so I forced myself to write out a spreadsheet of some other stories, and I wanted to and I have. Historical on the on the list, and I have one that's contemporary. But it's Wester 'cause we we lived out west for a little bit. So I really grew low that area, and there's a suspense that I'm working on now, that's contemporary romance. But it's also a suspense. So kinda learning a lot because a lot of my my writer buddies. I mean, our group we were all very, and so so I get tips from suspense from them. And I get tips from, you know, different ones on what I need to know. So so, yeah, so you'll see historical suspense coming up more contemporary. And and I may just explore few other things. But you know, I'm I guess it depends on the on. What I what I'm my my mood might be too. I don't know enough about they set nickel you can make your own world science fiction to really go into that. But that's kind of a neat thing though. Because. You're creating a completely new world. That's a that's a real draw very complicated. Oh, I know that Seifi is the one area where I really don't think that I could right. But at the same time what you're saying where you can pretty much start from scratch and create everything that's kind of appealing in the same time so daunting. Yeah. Yeah. It is. And I have a friend that doesn't doesn't very well. But and so I just marveled at that. Because 'cause I've been known to in this last I'm going to line at its right now. I'm thinking interesting that I've changed one of my secondary characters name. So I'm L my God, you know. So I think well, I probably, you know, I need to go back and fixes, and it was just an odd thing thinking, how did I how do you do this? And then 'cause I'm not the most organized person. But I do catch it. I do catch it. But on the first on the first round, it's like some people would have the same names or I'll forget I'll go back. Forget my characters where they were things like that. So it all worked out. I did the same thing in one of my books. Excuse me, a secondary character. He I don't even remember what the name is now, but he had one last name door the first half of the book in a completely different less name in the other half of the book, and no one caught it including my betas until after it was published and I was flipping through to get a like for something for a teaser like, wait a minute. Something's not right here. It. So I have it changed in changes last name. But it is kind of weird happens. I think people expect us as authors to keep that stuff straight. But the worst feeling in the world went after you see in Craig you're like, oh, dear gosh. Oh my gosh. In, you know, you wonder have people caught it just us anything or just, you know, they Dell I probably don't catch a lot because I read very fast. So there's there's probably things that I've missed that are probably lightly there. But so the now when I go back and look through some things and thinking, oh, wow. I really did not see that at all. I guess with your first you probably I would probably like to go back and rewrite the whole thing. But you know. Yeah. Definitely definitely for me. Now is gonna say I look at it. The books that have mistakes in them win I'm rich and famous than maybe they'll be worth something. So those people that have those with the heirs. That's true. Because I have a oh probably six or seven print books of my first book that before matting was horrible horrible is completely wrong. And I just kept him for whatever purpose everyone. I could you know, really cheap or something. But yeah. Like, they're collectors items because the formatting so bad in that they might be worse than that's right. That's right. Hey, we gotta look on the bright side. So where out west did you live? We live. We lived in Bakersfield, California for three years and fell in love with it. I fired to moving out there. We'd always live in the midwest and the job transfer in ended up. My first impression was we are in the middle of nowhere and obsolete fell in love with it the place the love the feel and it had his own beauty. I mean. It was a high desert, but certainly has its own view that really grew to like and the convenience at the time. It was less expensive and other areas of California. But we'd then we'd take the band of going to the beach going to national parks. And so it was a wonderful experience. We still have really good friends out there that we go out and and visit. So I really my love living in California. Can't beat the weather. Oh, yeah. Yeah. That's pretty cool. I lived in flagstaff for a few years flex f. I was ONA. Okay. It's just so different. It's it's almost difficult to put it into words to people who've never lived out there. As far as how how big is. That was just the impression. It's so Bill. Yeah. It's so vast and I remember on as we were moving driving. You see scientists say last gas. I, you know, hundred mile and really. Wow, live out here. And you know, Phil, it's it it is it surely is the vast is it is a completely different life than what I found about. California's it's not always easy to find a native Californian. I mean, and so it kinda worked out well because you have so many people from so many different places that everyone was kind of welcoming in sense that because there wasn't a whole long established people there, you know, people moved in and moved out and moved in. And but we I was kinda sad to leave. I mean, we're moving closer back towards this way. But in a way, I was kinda sad. And when we go out to visit. I it just feels very much at home in the very comfortable out there. I know that west really the west has this mystique about it. That's just it is hard to explain unless you've was you've lived out there, just different. It is it's I kind of. To compare it in a way to like the New England coast. 'cause that's where I grew up. You have all that kind of, you know, the Puritans in the the old colonial type history that you really you can feel even if even if you're not related to anybody there. I mean, you can just feel that out west you really feel that pioneer type spirit. Even all all these years later. It always amazes me. How in different areas of the country? You can almost sense the heritage, you know, what Bill that area. Yeah. I'm a real history buff and totally geek out on on. You know, where I'm standing, and you know, who was here and what were their lives like, and it's it's fascinating to me. And we're going to deadwood and used for finding and that's always been a trip. We wanted to take because I love the history. And so excited about going up there, and knowing a lot of that history from reading and watching things like it's just I don't know

"Let me give it a few nays. I know I'll get past it. Do you find that to? Absolutely. And it's funny because I actually have rheumatoid arthritis, and we do have a hot tub because I have to sometimes just so quite muscles because everything just hurts. And but I have discovered in the last year, I'll get in the hot tub, and it's like it. Frees my mind and I start it literally. I'll tell me I don't know what I'm writing right now. I gotta get not. This. The hot tub, and all of a sudden, it's almost like as my body is relaxing it. Frees my brain. And I have gotten over so many plea plots that were holding me up getting into the water. I have no idea why that works, and I'm almost embarrassed to tell anybody, but it's working. Hey, you go with what works for me? It's mowing Lutely. When when I'm stuck again on my lawnmower in the summer, and I just kinda tool around the yard and yet. Because it's kind of mindless Amihai while you're going, but I can just let my mind wander in you know, doesn't work so in the winner, but you can't have it. Maybe I'll invest in a hot tub. Well, the you know, what I've done the same thing on the writing on more. I think it's when you're out in a way from your office and away from your computer, and you're doing something kind of mindless that it does. It's like it. Frees reminding you're able to think through things absolutely. I have recently those started with dictating I purchased the dragon dictation because again, I was having trouble with I think our joints. And I thought I can't do this. There is no way I'm going to be able to dictate a story and a victory prolific author who does nothing, but do dictation he said, yes, you can do this. And it took me a couple of books of doing both typing and dictation, but the last three books I've done I had dictated and the last one I was able to do eight to ten thousand words a day. Wow. Dictating and so that's helping so much because. Because I'm getting better at it. The dragon dictation program has a lot of artificial intelligence, which leaves it actually learns as you go. The accuracy is actually very good. And it it's a it's just a lifesaver for my hands. Well, let me ask you this because I have dragon, and I've tried it. And I have I struggled to use it. But for me, it was because of the punctuation because you have to say your punctuation and that always stalls me because I don't I don't say. Hi mary-ann. How are you? Today. Question Mark when you're striking. They'll it's interesting when I first heard this other author who was talking to me, I said, I can't do it can't do it. There's no way. And she said your brain is already telling your fingers to type your brain tells your fingers to put in quotation. And a period and comma, and I was like, okay. That's right. And she said you just have to train your brain to tell your mouth now. I will I will be honest. I was very halting at first. It was things like open quotes. How are you? Question Mark, close close. And that's how I got started. And I thought it will take me a year to do one book. Right. And so I gave up on it just typed the next book. And then the next time I was really having. I'm having some hand pain and some joint swelling. And I thought I have to do this. I wanna have years left of writing books. So I forced myself to to work on it. And now, I don't think anything about it. She was right. It's like open close. How are usually question? Mark close close. He said period, and it just rolls off my time now, and my husband will hear me in another room. And he knows you know, I'm dictating because he can hear that. But it was funny. She was right. I just I had to train myself. And just really I told somebody the other day, I said necessity is the mother of learning how to use dragon. Well, I'll have to pull it out and give it another try then because one of the problems for me is what all have the perfect sentence in my head. It's just the most perfect sentence in the world and sit down to type it in something gets lost in the translation from my brain to my fingertips, and it does not come out the way that I thought it in in once I've thought it in it's in my fingertips. It's gone. Can't get that original thought back. So right dictation way back by that might be really good. And I will tell you also because I write romantic suspense. So the easiest thing for me though. And then I'm gonna council for you know, twenty something years. So the easiest thing for me is when I'm doing dialogue when there's a conversation between people I'll just lean back in my chair, and I can just did take those conversations because it's very much like having a conversation right now when I get something that's a little bit. More. Maybe when I get to some of the suspenseful part, and then I'm having to stop and do a little bit of research, and well, how how do I wanna descri- this wooded scene or this particular house, then I stumble a little bit more? But I'm finally this last book, I was really able to get going on it, and I thought okay, and I did an entire book without hand pain. And so I thought okay, I'm finding I'm finding what works for me. That's that's really great. I mean, and and I think that's what this is all about is is finding what works best for you at the at the moment in the long term, whatever whatever it is whatever technique as an author you have to employ in order to to get the books out the way you want them to be. Yes. Yes. Absolutely. And you know, you made a really good point earlier when you said, you know, how much will confident you are now than you were you know, when you got started. And I think writing is like any any particular skill when I go back and look at all those years that I was a counselor, obviously by the time I had several years onto my belt. I was much better than when I was first, you know, right out of school doing that. And I think one of the ways with my outlines and things I I know more about the getting of my stories the middle of the story doing the dialogue. Watching those repeated words making sure that their words that I have lied using things like that now are much more second nature, and I writing is so much better than it
