My reading list has multiplied faster than a litter of reggaetoning
bunnies. Once the word was out that I’d been on the hunt for good Latino
mysteries, I’d somehow connected with a bunch of readers and a crazy number of
writers. When I started blogging and trying to figure out what I wanted to
focus on, I came up with three things. They were spirituality,…

I think some of the best advice I've been given is to create tension on every page. I got this from one of Donald Maas' books.
This led to my first rule of writing crime fiction: Never bore the reader. That means there needs to be figurative thunder and lightning on every page. It can be overt or subtle, physical or psychological, and without a doubt it can be real or perceived. But in all cases it means making your…Continue

A.J. Scudiere will be my guest on The G-ZONE Weds. Sept. 28th @12pm EST. Here is a little something to get the ball rolling before the interview:
The writing of a thriller is just as much of a puzzle as the story itself is . . .
When I started writing God’s Eye, I already knew how the story would go. I knew which character was the demon and which was the angel. I knew what Katharine would have to go through to find her way and what the path she eventually chose would…Continue

Noir Nation has won a victory over the Google algorithm. A human AdWords specialist at Google determined that we were not in violation. No reason was given, yet it seems that our initial suspicion was correct: the SYSTEM determined we were in violation of Google policy. Google has reinstated our account, but we missed a couple peak weeks of advertising and possibly sales due to the "mistake".
In The Castle, Franz Kafka wrote about the faceless system. You don't get much more…Continue

When my first book came out, some years ago, it was like someone dropped a pebble in Lake Michigan. My friends and acquaintances were thrilled, so locally, there were ripples. The larger world barely noticed.
My second book, the first Simon & Elizabeth mystery, got more attention: good reviews from PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, LIBRARY JOURNAL, BOOKLIST, etc.
The third book also got good reviews, and people (very few, but still) started saying, "I've heard of you" when I went to book…Continue

Friday, December 4th it snowed in Houston. That was yesterday and this is now on a Saturday night. While the rain falls on the city of Houston, a body lays half in and half out of the heated swimming pool behind a posh home. If you don’t look closely, it almost seems as if she is reaching for something on the pool deck.
The young woman is dead and the wounds across her back tell part of the story. Too perfect, too neat, the stab wounds aren’t what killed 24 old…Continue

Reared in the county of Devon in England, my earliest memory is of the Exeter blitz in 1942. I married an Exeter man in 1960, and we reared our three children in Cornwall. We built our own sailing boats and sailed the English Channel visiting many ports on the French coast on our holidays. We moved to the…Continue
