Finally! The Innocent Hour is available. Check it out on my website: www.hughescribe.com.
Crime fiction is such fun to write! My fifth mystery novel, The Innocent Hour, will be released by my publisher, Black Opal Books, in October, 2019. It's the sequel to The Dying Hour.

My fourth mystery novel, Vanished: A Trust Mystery Book 3, was released by my publisher, Black Opal Books, on October 27, 2018, the third in the trust trilogy: A Matter of Trust and Redeeming Trust. For details, go to my website, hughescribe.com, FB or Twitter. Please do leave comments under the Contact Nancy tab. I'd love to hear what you think.

I studied advertising and journalism at Penn State, eventually settling in rural PA with my agricultural-banker husband and children. All my jobs revolved around writing. In recent years, I turned to a life of crime. I'm murdering people--in books--with five novels under contract. The first, The Dying Hour, was published October 15, 2016, and launched at The Mysterious Bookshop in NYC. My second novel, A Matter of Trust, was released Saturday, May 6, 2017. I love gardening, visiting our out-of-state kids and grands, volunteering at the VA. Our Reading Eagle newspaper featured my work in a recent article. Talk about luck! Following is the link. Can't wait to hear what all of y'all are up to.

School Story

Mrs Miller! Remember her? Senior composition. Her black kitty, Tar Baby. Those typed papers, due once a week. I still have my critical survey of DH Lawrence with 91 footnotes! That, she gave us two weeks to do. As she promised, freshman year was easy by comparison. And some hapless kid, on our campus tour, did say, "so this is the li-berry!" We got a great education! Had the highest % of National Merit finalists of any school east of the Mississippi except Shaker Heights in Cleveland. Remember the WPIAL basketball semi-final at the Fieldhouse downtown? Detractors called us "cake eaters". Some of you brought cakes. Kingsley Briggs--I borrowed her name for my protagonist in books number 2, 3, and 4.
Thank you all for your wonderful news, and Hal and friends for getting this website together. Remember the MLA style sheet? I had to unlearn that as a journalist (for the AP Stylesheet) and then the Chicago Manual Style Sheet, the bible of the book publishing industry. Somebody please! Help me with comas!

Thank you for posting the detailed tribute to Ricky's wonderful life of service to his country and love of his family and friends. I remember him as the little boy who, in first grade, was carried by Mr. "D" when he couldn't walk. And I never heard what happened to him; how his life evolved into an amazing adult. The world is a better place for his having been with us. My heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends.
