M. L. Hamiltonabout this book: As I near the end of middle-age, I find myself getting bored with books about women in their twenties and thirties who find love and all is hunky-dory. I'm not much of a romantic, and I want to read about older women. So that's what you'll find in my first mystery suspense novel.
Years ago, I read an article in a local newspaper about an elderly woman who arrived at a nursing home with only a jacket, purse, cane and a medical card as ID. She was alert and chatty, but refused to give them any information about her background. I never learned whether or not her story was discovered, but the idea wouldn't let go of me and eventually, I wrote Pendant from that idea seed planted by the original article.
My mother spent a couple years in a privately run assisted living home, so I modeled the home in the book somewhat after the facility where she lived. And Waco is my adopted home, so it was fun to weave bits and pieces of the city and its surroundings into the story. But since this is my first mystery suspense novel, I needed a lot of help. Fortunately, I know a veteran cop who patiently listened to what I needed, discussed possibilities with me, and offered some great suggestions.
I wrote this book purely for entertainment, so I hope you enjoy it. If you find some spiritual encouragement from reading it, that would be awesome.
