Two days' driving, but it was beautiful all the way. Traffic was okay and the Garmin did the rest. (I love that thing!) So here I am at the Marriott, wishing I could live like this for at least a month. Lots of people who love to talk about books, lots of fancy food and attentive hotel staff (if you tip well), and the chance to see old friends, make new friends, and see my heroes of the writing world.

I'll spend next weekend surrounded by mystery fans at Malice Domestic. Since 1989, Malice Domestic has been an annual fan convention near Washington, D.C., saluting the traditional mystery—books best typified by the works of Agatha Christie.…Continue

I've been on pins and needles to tell everyone since February. My agent strictly forbade this until the countersigned contract was in my hand. Even Amazon got to announce it before me.
I have a publisher. I have a contract for two books. I get both hardcover and tradepaper a year later. I have a great editor (with clout) and a great copy editor (and that's something I really no longer expected). I get published both in the UK and the US. This year! All very…Continue

Day Two of Preparing for Malice: Now it's time to be sure I have all the non-clothing stuff covered.
I have packed bookmarks and books, business cards and copies of relevant documents. I have my passport (I know where D.C. is, but we may return through Canada, so there.) I have two suitcases: an on-the-road dufflebag and my official Malicewear suitcase. So what's left to do?
I need to make sure that my laptop has everything on it that I might need while I'm gone. I tend to…Continue

I like to share comments I receive about my work. Today I want to introduce Linda Halliburton.
I met Linda at the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville, VA where she picked up a copy of The Troubleshooter. She read it the next day on her flight home and was kind enough to send me some feedback. I've posted some of her comments on my website as this week's featured review. Read Linda Halliburton's review of The Troubleshooter - then order your own copy. -…

A new Turner/Frank short story is up on darkestbeforedawn. Its called 'Boy Scout and the Beast.' A kinda locked-room puzzle. If you're twiddling your thumbs and looking for something to do, go check it out. You might like it . . . . or not. I dunno.

It's been done before, and I know why. Bloggers need topics, and a trip is an easy one. So for the next week or so, I'll tell you about my preparation, travel, and experiences relating to Malice Domestic in Washington, D.C.
Today is Planning What to Drag Along Day: clothes, books, and assorted miscellaneous items.
We'll begin with clothes. Here is my process. I think about the things I will be doing on the trip, and carefully lay out an outfit for…

I had a great time Saturday visiting with old pals and meeting new authors at the Maryland Writers' Association Writers' Conference. There were a number of excellent sessions but one of the highpoints for me was the wonderful keynote address delivered by award-winning novelist Roxana Robinson. She was both encouraging and inspirational.…Continue
