I recite facts. I do not manufacture them.
After decades of school pounding that into my head, it is incredibly hard to buck that directive.
The crime scene in my Cozy Mystery is a 1970’s era single-wide trailer. There is remarkably little information available about these “gems.” So, I’ve been forced to fabricate facts.
I hate that.
I feel the need to repent.
Bottom line: The only thing worse than being a nut is being a guilty nut.
