My third book, already percolating, will be set in current times with my protagonist facing not only coronavirus, but valley fever.  As she struggles with being besieged with two difficult and potentially chronic or fatal illnesses, she and her husband learn that they’ve fallen into the hands of an unscrupulous financial planner.
