Feeling very much in the jolly side of things today. Woke up to find out that Blood on teh Holly just got a good review from the Globe and Mail. Here's the link for those interested:


Not sure if this will work or not.

Other jolly news department - the big gay site has chosen Drag Queen in the Court of Death as their years best mystery! That is… Continue

'Tis the Season...

I seem to be missing a lot of the fun this time around, either because of the weather, a poor excuse, but real, or because of migraines. I blame that on the weather too,. Why not? Mostly, it's true. Still, the events I am making it to are cheering.

In spite of this, I've been lurching along through my new book, and am feeling more hopeful about it now. I'm refusing to reread anything much as I go along, just enough to give me the gist of what went before, so I don't get bogged down in… Continue

On the Road Again

Next week I'm off to the World Fantasy Convention with my friend, horror writer Nancy Kilptarick. This is my last trip in a year full of trips as I tried to get my two new books-- DRAG QUEEN IN THE COURT OF DEATH (a mystery) and THE DANGER DANCE (sf-espionage adventure) out there on the world. I went south - to Texas with Anthony Bidulka - fellow Canadian mystery writer; I went east to new York city to Book Expo America and attended my first Lambda Literary Awards, to see my… Continue

Hey, Caro, Congrats on the acknowledgement for "Drag Queen...", that must be very gratifying! And isn't it great in TO today? If this isn't a prelude to spring, then my kids don't own skates! heh heh
Best in writing,

Hi Caro
and yes, I'm a huge Val McD fan. I'm also lucky enough to count her amongst my friends - albeit long-distance.

PD Martin, Kerry Greenwood, Leigh Redhead and Kathryn Fox, Sydney Bauer, Alison Goodman, and Narelle Harris are all female Aussie crime writers. the Aussie blokes are Shane Maloney, David A Rollins and Geoffrey McGeachin.

All the others on the list - Janet Evanovich, JM Redmann, Nelson DeMille, Tom Robbins (that's Tom, not Harold) and Steven Pressfield - are American.

Tom and Steven don't write crime but they do write very very well.

No problems Caro, I'd love to help you out. Just don't wait til the last minute, because I usually have a lot of questions surrounding the actual poisoning. It's actually what happens peripheral to the poisoning that gives it an authentic feel. Ciao.

And a considerable legion at that... Our numbers continue to grow. It must be this great thaw we're experiencing...

Congratulations on your book, Drag Queen! We are about to go and shovel our our cars when our snow-removal guys didn't show. See you tomorrow night if the abominable snowman doesn't get me first....

Looking forward to reading your latest mystery. I often see your posts on GWR.

I'm afraid I'm a bit of a flop in the blogging world. Can't seem to remember to do it. :) I hoped this page would inspire me, but alas, it's only when Someone posts here that I remember. Sad.

My web page, however, is more or less up to date...

Thanks, Carol. I'm looking forward to reading your works, too! But first, I'll start with your blog and your website!

Happy Holidays!

I may be mis-remembering, but I think you sat next to me at the SIC booth at BookExpo. You've put a lot of promo-miles under you since then. Hope the travel was worth it. I was browsing members, and got interested when I read your remark about not being very interested in others' books when you're writing. I can SO relate (but I still try to read).

Jane Burfield? Of course! She as a story in the anthology I edited called BLOOD ON THE HOLLY. A great book for Christmas, by the way. :) And Sleuth--hey, they carry my books. Gotta love' em!
