Thanks for Books and Readers

Thanks for Books and Readers

I probably don't have to tell you it's American Thanksgiving! There have been lots of #givethanks posts on my Facebook timeline this week, and I have been buoyed up by everyone's words of thanks. During challenging times, it is easy to get swamped by negative feelings and influences, and counting your blessings can provide a much-needed boost. Even hearing about others' blessings seems to be helping me ...

I know, the Black Friday sales have already started and you should be getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner, and this year is just weird.

As with all of my books, Pain can be read as a standalone or together with the rest of the series. If you want to start with book #1, you can pick up Mito for free. ...

My 2020 Bookiversary

My 2020 Bookiversary

October is the anniversary of publishing my first book. (The first book I published, not the first book I wrote—that was not fit for publication.) Believe it or not, that was back in 2013. I was dipping my toes into the publishing world to see whether it would be possible for me to write full time as my office job wound down in on a predicted five-year timeline. ...

Celebrate Cozy Mystery Day with me!

Celebrate Cozy Mystery Day with me!

September 15 is Cozy Mystery Day! Why, you may ask? Because it is Dame Agatha Christie's birthday, and she is widely regarded as the creator of the cozy mystery. A cozy mystery is generally regarded as a mystery with an amateur sleuth like Miss Marple or Murder She Wrote's Jessica Fletcher, who uses her wits to solve a mystery before the proper authorities. The genre consists of clean reads (no sex on the page, no blood and gore, no f-bombs) that can be enjoyed by all ages. ...

Will your next read be a brozy?

Will your next read be a brozy?

A brozy? What's that? Brozy is a new mystery subgenre that is gaining momentum. You may have heard of a cozy mystery, a light entertaining mystery in the tradition of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple or Murder She Wrote. Usually a female protagonist, no gore, no swearing or sex on the page. The amateur sleuth usually has another job, hobby, or interest, and maybe pets. ...

Why doesn't she leave?

Why doesn’t she leave?

I've had some comments from readers of the Reg Rawlins Psychic Investigator series who express disgust or frustration with Reg for having anything to do with Corvin Hunter after becoming aware that he is a predator, and one who has repeatedly made promises that he hasn't kept. I thought maybe this would be a good opportunity to open up a discussion about why those who are abused stay with their abusers for so long. Why don't they just leave? ...
