  Whoohoo! Put the final period on my manuscript for the new novel, Mangroves and Monsters, last Thursday (June 18, 2009) and sent it off to the publisher. Exciting. Now, I've got my fingers crossed she likes the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. A spin-off from my debut novel, Hoodoo Money,...
