The title of this post refers to the controversial non-fiction title If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer that was written in part by O.J. Simpson and credited to the Goldman Family.
Eric Kampmann, publisher of what many seem to be calling "the O.J. book", spoke recently at the…Continue

Intellectual property theft isn’t just an author issue: Today I learned a site is abusing individuals by posting their comments without permission.
I’ve been grappling with my feelings about this all day, and will come full circle. The question of how we use the internet, and how seriously we take what’s posted on it, was raised in my mind recently. The trigger was a discussion on Crimespace, in which an ITW press release was posted…Continue

ISLAND OF EXILES (just released) is my fifth published novel in the Akitada series.
My first publisher chose two novels out of order (I had four completed in 2001).
This was disappointing…Continue

The entire Roland Longville series will be out in Audiobook next year. That's three books so far, as well as the fourth, which I am still working on, as of this post. I had originally envisioned 12 volumes, but who knows? I am also currently working on a Sci-fi novel (which is also a mystery of sorts) and a psychological novel about...well, a man who thinks he is, in short, someone else. I tend to work on many projects at once, dabbling in music, web development, and programming as well. I…Continue

Really. I mean, the woman started reading me Edgar Allen Poe when I was still too short to reach the kitchen faucet and get my own drink of water. She would often appear in our bedroom doorway with a book and share a snippet of poetry or prose that had grabbed her imagination, and it was usually something spooky. She talked about words and the usage of words, why things were better said this way than that. And she put into my hands at about age thirteen the most unlikely of English teacher…Continue

Robin Caroll has written a suspense-filled thriller with a big splash of romance thrown in. CoCo is not an everyday heroine, yet the author shows the grace that CoCo has learned since becoming a Christian, especially in dealing with those difficult questions about why God lets bad things happen. The pages don’t stop turning as CoCo and Luc reconcile their relationship and work on solving the murder. The secondary characters are marvelous, from Grandmere to Tara, CoCo’s sister; Luc’s…Continue

My husband has ringworm.
Ok, not really, but that’s what he’s claiming.
Let me explain.
My husband and I are very different. He’s a country boy and I’m a city
girl. His ideas of necessities include bullets, beef, and beans. My
list is more practical and includes haircuts, oil changes, and trips to
My husband is a “we’ll make it work” kind of guy and I’m a “if I can’t
do it right the first time, what’s the point” kind…

Ever since I was a toddler listening to stories being read to my two-years-older sister, I have loved books. Reading was my refuge from a family so dysfunctional that I (the honor student Girl Scout goody two-shoes) was the black sheep.
I read everything, from cereal boxes to the three newspapers (tabloids all) that my parents bought every Sunday. My avid attention to the salacious true crime stories got me banished from…Continue

I have two places conducive to thinking, and they are as different as can be. First, I think in the car, preferably on a long trip and preferably alone. The automatic process of driving seems to calm my conscious mind and let the deeper thoughts arrange themselves into viable plots and possible characters. I particularly like the drive across Michigan's Upper Peninsula, which is both beautiful and remote, allowing lots of time to work out plot knots. I carry a small recorder and talk to…Continue

We're probably bats, but
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
Ever wanted to have a go at a themed short story?
Ever wanted to participate in a serial novel online?
Ever wondered what the hell she's talking about this time....
Come and play.... it could be fun you…Continue
