My name is Trish Hubschman. I live on Long Island, New York with my husband, Kevin, and the new dog, Henry. I’m deafblind.
Do you work at another job? If so tell us about fitting in the writing/cover design/editing. No, I left my job on Disability in 2006. I was a typist for a New York State agency.
Do you have a family? What do they think of your job? Do they assist you? We don’t have children. My husband proofreads all my writing. He helped with the cover design of my last book, Ratings Game. He also helps me on the computer a lot.
Kevin and my mom are very proud of me and like my writing
Are you organised? In a way, I guess I am. I need to know where things are so I can find them again. That holds true with things on the computer too.
What time do you get up/go to bed? I’m an early bed, early to rise person. 8 pm or so at night, 6 am in the morning.
Do you find it hard to fit everything in? Definitely, there aren’t enough hours in the day.
What is your ideal working environment? I need quiet, no TV or music on. I wear headphones on the computer and I can’t stand distractions for many reasons. The ringing phone drives me nuts.
What do you eat for breakfast? Coffee first, then maybe scrambled eggs or cereal and a second cup of coffee.
Give us a brief rundown of your average day from getting up to going to bed. Coffee first, then I go into my computer room to flip on the PC and put on my shoes, eat breakfast, then the exercise bike for 20 minutes, shower, then check my email and Facebook, I might play with the dog a bit, let me him out, take a nap, but I always go back to my PC to work.
Would you recommend your chosen craft to those interested in doing it? I love to write. It gives me a feeling of wholeness. Yes, I would recommend it.

America’s favorite rock band, Tidalwave, is playing the Miss America pageant. Band leader Danny Tide is emceeing the event. All is going according to schedule. The judges have picked the 10 semi–finalists. Suddenly, everything comes to a halt. Miss New Jersey is missing. Nobody knows what happened to her or where she is. Danny calls his longtime PI friend, Tracy Gayle, and asks her to come down to Atlantic City to help figure things out. In need of her best friend for personal support and eager to get to another case, Tracy agrees. There’s an all–out search of the hotels on the boardwalk. They find Miss New Jersey, but it’s not good. Her kidnapping leads to another assault and murder. The big star and the lady PI work together on this one, so that the Miss America pageant can continue as usual.
