For those of you who have been following the Churchill Thriller series you know that, although the stories are fiction, the research, the background and the details of the time period and even the historical characters are very well done.

The Gemini Agenda by Michael and Patrick McMenamin: Book Review

A historical thriller so gripping, so intriguing you’ll have a hard time putting it down.

 

The McMenamin’s have done it again. Their Winston Churchill thriller series is set against a tumultuous time; pre-WW2. So much of the fiction is set against the background of true history and true characters that it will also challenge you to tell the difference. Hitler was evil and so was what he did. You…

What Squirrel Tastes Like: Indie Crime Fiction

It's odd sometimes how writing and reading slips into other parts of your life. Take eating squirrels, for example.



This past weekend, I had the privelege to travel into some of the prettiest country in Minnesota. The southeastern part of the state is sculpted by limestone bluffs overlooking lazy streams and picture-perfect farmland. Take a look from the top of…

Take a Bite out of Research!

Research doesn’t have to be like a rabid animal trying to take a bite out of your backside.  Make peace with it; in fact, make best friends with it.

Research is Phase Two of my outlining stage.  I consider myself lucky because I love to conduct research.  Let’s face it, you can learn something that you didn’t know when you woke up that morning.  How cool is that?

Hell’s Belle – The Matronly Face of a Brutal Serial Killer?

Interestingly, we have a difficult time wrapping our minds around the fact that there have been “female” serial killers throughout history.  Many times these fiendish femme fetales have had a different approach to offing their unsuspecting victims such as with poison, suffocation, and even starvation as opposed to shootings, knifings, and blunt force traumas…

Tumblin' Dice

Obscured so far by all the hullabaloo over the imminent release ofWorst Enemies (March 1 for Kindle and Nook, only $2.99) is the news that John McFetridge’s newest, Tumblin’ Dice, will also be available March 1, and in a more corporeal sense in that it’s an actual physicalbook, with pages and a cover and dust jacket and binding and all that stuff that keeps IKEA in business selling us shelves to put them on. I was fortunate enough to receive an…

My First"Solo" Book Published Today!

This is sooooooooooooooo coooooooooooool!

(Although a little anticlimactic and kind of post-partum tristesse, but that'll pass)

 

It's not really a crime book...although it addresses solutions that are regrettable still considered crimes in many countries.

 

I've been chipping away at publication in books, but this time it's MY book.  With MY name on the COVER.  Hear me…

Book Review: "One Perfect Shot: The Posadas County Mysteries" by Steven F. Havill.

Prequels seem to be coming from numerous successful authors these days. It is a tricky thing to do and, as Lee Child and Nevada Barr have recently showed, can have decidedly mixed results. That is not true in this case as One Perfect Shot: The Posadas County Mysteries works on all levels. The book is not only true to the series as a whole; the book is a very good one.

It is 1989 and Undersheriff Bill Gastner’s latest case is a strange one. There is one road grader in all of…
