Excerpt from Every Breath You Take

I am currently working on Every Breath You Take by Mary Higgins Clark, the Queen of Suspense. This is book 5 in the Under Suspicion series. I have read at least two others in this series, and am enjoying the building of the case.

Excerpt from Dangerous Minds

Excerpt from Dangerous Minds

Right now, I am reading Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich. It is the second book in the Knight and Moon series, and I have actually read the first one as well. I love the characters in this book. Evanovich writes lots of fun, quirky characters, and does not disappoint in this series. We've got an eccentric billionaire and the practical woman who tires without success to keep him stable and down to earth. There is a monk who has lost his island, and the billionaire's cousin, a hanger-on who is eccentric in his own rite. Put it together with an international threat, a secret society, and of course the missing (stolen) island, and you've got an Evanovich classic ...
Summer writing

Summer writing

Summer has arrived! Kids are out of school, people are taking vacation, and here in Calgary, the Stampede is about to begin (which of course means that there should be plenty of thunderstorms over the next week!) I don't have any kids in school, we're not planning any trips until September, and well, we don't do Stampede or anything else with so many people in one place. ...
Excerpt from The Camel Club

Excerpt from The Camel Club

I have just started reading The Camel Club by David Baldacci. I have read one or two other books in the Camel Club series. There are some good characters; I am particularly enjoying the OCD member of the club, Milton Farb. But I am partial to characters with neurodiversities. Baldacci is always good for suspense and well-structured plots and clues. Lots of action and thrills. ...

Excerpt from The Light Between Oceans

Excerpt from The Light Between Oceans

I am just finishing The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman. It has been a very interesting books with some unexpected twists and turns. There is some beautiful language and some very profound quotes. Fate miraculously presents a returning soldier with PTSD and his wife, who has suffered from three miscarriages with an apparently orphaned baby. But… life doesn't actually work that way… ...

Autism Acceptance Month

I've written a few other blogs on special autism observation days (some links farther down). April is widely known as Autism Awareness Month. The last few weeks, there has been a lot of buzz on groups that I am associated with on the Neurodiversity movement and changing "Autism Awareness" to "Autism Acceptance." ...

Excerpt from The Screwtape Letters

Excerpt from The Screwtape Letters

I am currently reading a C.S. Lewis classic, The Screwtape Letters. C.S. Lewis, the author of the children's fantasy series The Narnia Chronicles, also wrote a number of letters on Christianity such as The Great Divorce, Mere Christianity, and, of course, The Screwtape Letters. He also wrote a space trilogy, of which I have read only the second book, Perelandra. C.S. Lewis does a lot of writing in allegories, which can be real brain teasers. ...

Have a Non-Romantic Valentine's Day

Have a Non-Romantic Valentine’s Day

This year, I wanted to do something a little bit different again. I wanted to focus on characters who were asexual or aromantic. But in searching for them, I kept running up against books that were about sexual relationships and romance, but from or including an ace/aro perspective or character. And I realized that wasn't what I was looking for. I was looking for books that did not focus on romance at all. Where sex and romance were not the focus of the story, or even a subplot. ...
