After writing Patience is a Virtue, I decided I wouldn’t write another robot book unless I had a story. I finally thought of one and planned out a trilogy of books. The first book was A Great Deal of Patience, and I think it is by far the best of the series.
As so often, I started writing and got side-tracked several times. I stopped for about two months and wrote The Dragon’s Choice, but left it unedited to return to Patience. It was finally done and I published it in 2017. That sounds like a long time ago, but in my mind, I just finished that book. It continues to sell well and I get more positive emails and comments about it than any other book.
