A Novel Way to Find Old Friends

When I began writing what eventually became my two volumes of “Tales of Ramasun” I didn’t think of it as being a way to rediscover old friends and find new ones.  You might say that that has been a ‘fringe benefit’ of my writing, but I’d say that it’s the most important benefit, and all the more welcome as it was unexpected.  I recently ‘found’ a good friend and his Thai wife both of whom had been my neighbors in the Village of Non Sung.  We had been in touch for a few years after we came…

Another Great New Mystery

Linda Barnes’ new novel, THE PERFECT GHOST has kind of a Daphne DuMaurier feel. I think it takes courage for a best-selling author to change up their writing, but it can pay off big.
