Thanks to Michael Feldman's "Whad'Ya Know"

Lots of fun doing the terrifying live interview. Big crowd, Michael very funny, great bands (the Whad'Ya Know trio, and Mike Perry's band, the Longbeds), lots of funky taxidermy on stage (I wanted to take the bear home with me), some great moments with audience members, etc. Also selling some books--a nice little sales spike on Amazon, and a couple of nice emails from folks who heard and enjoyed the show. Thanks especially to producer Todd Witter for finding me, and making all the… Continue

Southland

The Beloved Spouse and I were discussing when we'd find time to watch

the episodes of Justified and South Park we have on the DVR when

we remembered Southland dropped

off our radar completely during and after the Olympics. We watched the

first four episodes, then never came back. Neither of us feels any

burning desire to catch up.



We both… Continue

Whirlwind book tour of the North East of England

I’m back from a highly successful whirlwind mini tour of the north east of England, my second in six months and I’m delighted to say I was met once again with very friendly people and some avid fans of my marine mystery crime novels.

The first stop was Washington Town Centre Library, yes, home of George Washington the first President of the United States of America, 1789 to 1797, whose ancestors settled in Washington, England, then called…

Waiting For Sunrise ~ Donna Carrick

Is there a more perfect time of day than this? The world is hushed, children still asleep. Clock ticks quietly, reminding me of the passing of days, slowed for a moment, but soon to resume the race from week to week, year to year.



Watching for the sunrise. A thought, captured in the darkness, one crystalline piece of mind. Scooped up in the hand, placed in a jar,… Continue

The fight scene

Aw, the fight scene. I've got three of them and I just wrote them to get through it. Now I have to go back and make it right. So I looked it up on the internet, my one-stop shop, and came up with good advice from many different sources. You get conflicting advice,…

Researching novels-before writing first drafts or as you write?

I am often asked how I research my novels. I know that some writers prefer to do all their research up front before they begin writing the novel but I like to do some basic research when the idea for the novel occurs to me and while I flesh out an outline plot, and then start writing the first draft, while the research is incomplete.



Why this way? Because once I have the basics of the plot, characters and research I can’t wait to start the…

Another Cool Review

I like to share comments I receive about my work. Today I’d like to introduce you to Natalie Shaw.

I met Natalie at Borders Books in Waldorf a while ago. She wrote to me to say she enjoyed Russian Roulette and was sharing it with her book club. More importantly, she was the first reader to point out a continuity error in the book, which will be corrected in the next edition.

Thanks Natalie, for your…

In Nablus, the price is right

I was cramming down a a slice of qanafi at my favorite vendor in the Nablus casbah yesterday when a gang of Palestinian reporters and officials intruded on my guilty pleasure. This was at Aqsa Sweets, which readers of THE SAMARITAN'S SECRET will know as the place favored by the hero of my Palestinian crime novels Omar Yussef because it has a perfect blend of the cheeses of different Syrian and Palestinian goats in…

The Khamaileon . . .

Last night I am minding my own business and screwing around with a few words on the screen when--Pop! Up jumps this character out of my subconscious. A cross between a Jason Bourne action figure and an avengel angel type like 'The Punisher.'

The difference between the comic avenging angels is that you never see this guy's true identity. You see his disguises. You hear his thoughts. But that's it. Who he says he is may not be accurate either. As, in the end, is the question as…
