Out of the (C)Old, Comes the New

Yeah, I know…bad pun.

I grew up playing in cemeteries. Our family church homes were tiny congregations adjacent to graveyards, and my friends and I always bounded away as soon as we could from church events and family reunions. We'd race among the stones, catch lizards, and perch on granite monuments and make up spooky tales about the ones who lay beneath.

Old gravestones are always the best, and one of my favorites is in the Forest Chapel United Methodist Church graveyard in Hartselle, Alabama. My family attended for a few years when I was a kid. Scratched deep into the stone by an obviously caring, if uneducated, loved one are the words:

EDMEMORY
Of JOSHUA
INMON
HOOWA BOR(N) 1775
AND DESESED
AUGUST TWENTY
FORTH DAY 1804

So who was (hoowa) Joshua and why did he die at 29? Was it a fever? Accident?

Murder?

So it is that I’ve been fascinated with cold cases most of my life. My next book for Steeple Hill, House of Secrets, is a combination story involving a new and cold case, and the book after that is as well. And the one after that.

In fact, it looks as if cold case romantic suspense may be my niche. After all, if I need inspiration, all I have to do is pay a visit to a few of my old haunts (so to speak) and dwell a while on the lives of the saints who have gone before. Their world and lives were as fascinating as our own.

I will be looking forward to your upcoming cold case books because I too am fascinated by them.

Dana Mentink said...

And I like that show on t.v. about cold cases. I always think it's sad that the world moves on but for the people who were involved, or lost a loved one, they are forever rooted in that time.

PamelaTracy said...

Oh, I love both cemeteries and cold case TV. Great post. And loved the picture of Joshua's stone.

Linda said...

After reading Field of Danger, I certainly look forward to your new book!!! My blog at www dot onedesertrose dot wordpress dot com has my review.

Debby Giusti said...

Fascinating, Ramona! The stories have already grabbed me! Keep us posted on your progress.

Terri Reed said...

I love cold cases, as well. Dana do you mean, Cold Cases--not the TV drama Cold Case,( which I also do watch and love,) but the one where they profile real cold cases--kind of like American Justice. I'm fascinated with the show. I've glean some good ideas from the show.
Ramona, fascinating photos. I have only been in a cemetary a few times in my life, mostly for relatives funerals. Though I really was fascinated with Arlington when I went to DC. There was something so poignant about that sea of white crosses.

I think all murders should be solved even if it is years later. It gives people closure when a loved one is murdered.
