It's been some time since I dropped a line and had a chance to read other blogs and posts at Crimespace. Mea Culpa.
I head back to the island of Antigua in the Caribbean--was invited to attend the Antigua and Barbuda Literary Festival that will be held the first weekend in November. Though meant to celebrate Caribbean authors, I've been invited because of my novel-in- progress, Murder Visits Antigua, a Golden Age mystery, and because of my Amazon Shorts story, "Antiguan Memories."…Continue

October has been a good month so far. Granted, it's my favorite month out of the year 'cause of a certain holiday that falls on the final day, but the rest of it hasn't been anything to sneeze at either. Why am I so jubilant? Several reasons:
1. My Masters creative writing thesis committee has been assembled and it's my dream committee. All four professors I asked to participate agreed and I didn't need to resort to the runners up list.
2. My creative writing thesis project has…Continue

This is my favorite kind of day. It's raining -- just sprinkling a bit right now -- and I'm kicked back catching up on email and a few other necessary chores. Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys Season Two is playing on the DVD player -- and I do need to post my thoughts on this favorite TV show of my misspent youth over at Girl Detective one of these days. It's so...different than I remembered.
I finally got to preview the cover…Continue

Silly me – when I first started writing mysteries, I had no idea there were so many subgenres. To me, a mystery is a mystery is a mystery. When I put my fingers to the keyboard and pumped out my first mystery, Too Big To Miss, I was writing a mystery – period. I didn’t write for a particular label or to avoid being labeled. I wrote from my gut, the labels came later and were purely superficial.
Although many readers consider my Odelia…Continue

For those who might like a short break, a taste of something wild and different, my novella, Halo in Her Pocket, was released today by Dark Eden Press.
Short and hot, the book is adult in nature and is set in Alaska under the Midnight Sun of Summer Solstice.
I'd like it if you decided to take a look. And while you're at it, check out my interview at…Continue

This one might have you thinking that I've deluded myself into believing I'm a former President of the United States, but not so. It happened to me.
I'm on my daily walk in the woods. As I follow the path, ahead I see a rabbit, sitting maybe twenty feet ahead of me. This is unusual, since rabbits are, well, rabbity. They tend to startle and run at the first sign of an intruder. This rabbit was sitting very still, in plain sight.
As I approached him, the rabbit took off, as I…Continue

Thank goodness some semblance of autumn finally arrived in southeast Texas this past week. For me, that first real cool front means it's time to make chili. And I did. I do a good chili, but not Texas chili, Yankee chili. I know. You can the girl out of Yankee-land but you can't .... Anyway, it's also time to pull out the best kitchen…Continue
