How did she do it? (Part 2)

Posted by Gayle on July 9, 2008

So, by October of 2006, I had the general idea for a murder mystery: an older gal who is a P.I., discovers a severed hand with an expensive ring in the freezer of a client.
But whose hand was it? How did it get there? Why didn’t they take the ring?
I stalled on these answers, and more, until May 2007. It was Mother’s Day weekend, and Dale and I were driving up to Paso Robles to see Snoopy compete at a horse show. Dale was driving, which meant that I was sleeping, because that’s the way I roll. I was slightly in-between awake and asleep, when my mind began to follow a thread, from an aging starlet who had an affair with a Douglas Fairbanks-type of actor, to a homeless girl who stumbles upon a pretty ring… and her doom.
I sat up, grabbed my digital voice recorder, and laid it all out, the who what when where why.
Then I went back to blissful sleep.
