Vincent Zandri The Innocent

Personally I don’t know how the guy does it time after time after time. I am going to admit to having read most of his work, not all of it, but most of it. The thing that always sticks with me about his writing is the

depth and humanity he adds to his characters. Here is what the novel is about:

“Getting caught is simply not an option.

It's been a year since Jack Marconi's wife was killed. Ever since,…

New client

It's not writing related, but we've added a new client and we're pretty excited about it.

It is the first entry under "wins."

Today I have to be in a "killing" mood. Sorry. That's just the way it is.

Good thing it's rainy and windy outside. Don't think a bird would have a chance holding its own. Even the squirrels and chipmunks have gone to ground.

The water is churning on the lake. Not a duck or loon in sight.

Perfect day to write a thriller scene - an entire chapter if I can stay in that place I have to go - see and feel that must be seen and felt. It may take days. For sure, there is… Continue

NEW New Orleans Novel

I keep saying it – she’s not big and there’s nothing easy about New Orleans. She is a beautiful tragedy, as is Coco Robichaux, the alluring victim in BARONNE STREET by Kent Westmoreland. There is nothing more tragic than the death of someone young. yes""> Jest before her death, Coco leaves a message on her ex-lover’s answering machine, a…

Urinal-top video

We were on the Hessian plain somewhere outside Frankfurt when I felt as though the drugs had taken hold.

Why am I paraphrasing the great Hunter S. Thompson? Because I endured an experience that Professor Gonzo could only have imagined in his wildest LSD frenzies. Something that made me feel I must be hallucinating, as if the Las Vegas of HST’s fear and loathing had come to me, cleaned up and waterless but every bit as insidious. What I saw was proof…

Stuart Woods Sante Fe Edge

Hey, I just needed to fit this in today. I am a big fan of Stuart Woods, and will admit to having read all his novels, all of them. I saw this was coming out and I figure, why break my streak. I went through this

quickly and laughed almost from beginning to end for many reasons. The title

for one, it should have been Santa Fe Soap Opera or As Stuart Woods Turns. Don’t

miss understand me, I am not hating on it. I think it was just what I needed in

Research and Writing: It’s not just the facts after all

I’ve been writing in various genres for some time now, but only recently came to appreciate the link between research and inspiration. Yes, I know; it was probably always there, but I hadn’t really given it much thought until just a few years ago.…

Don't Be in Such a Rush

I'm about to give up on an author I know is good, at least on the piece of her work that I'm currently reading. It's pretty obvious that this one was done in a rush, and it suffers. I'm about done suffering along with her.

Someone told me once that a writer's first book is a luxury. She has her whole life to write it, if need be. She doesn't have to send it off until she feels it is ready, and even then, it might take years for someone to notice it. During those years, she can tinker with… Continue

Marshall Karp Cut, Paste, Kill

Hello!! I am going to say this right off the bat: If you enjoy or love character driven fiction, a little humor in your reading (okay maybe I should say smart aleck responses and sardonic humor), a good, fun,

mystery and a nice detective novel, then I have just the author for you. I

didn’t know the author existed until one of the nice local librarians pointed

him out to me. I know most of them (the librarians) a long time; they try to

direct me to neat…

Hezbollah's rapture, resistance, and revolution

Here's my review of A Privilege to Die: Inside Hezbollah’s Legions and Their Endless War Against Israel — by Thanassis Cambanis (Free Press).

Most books on Hezbollah tend to focus, in one way or another, on the Lebanese Shia group’s fundamentalist politics. That’s in contrast to what strikes you as a journalist when you travel to southern Lebanon, one of the Hezbollah heartlands. There the greatest impressions are visceral. The earthquake of an Israeli…

eBooks… Fad or Future?

I know I talk about eBooks a lot and I am sure some people are sick and tired of hearing about it, but… I can’t help myself. eBooks are the reason I can write for a living, the reason I can sit here in a local

Starbucks in Nampa Idaho and not really have a job. I laugh every time someone

asks what I do. I think about it and say, “I am semi retired.”…

Was the Experiment a Success?

I recently conducted a little experiment in book marketing, placing an ad on FaceBook promoting the release of my three mystery/medical thriller novels as eBooks. The materials utilized for the experiment were no more than my laptop, a little electricity, a high speed cable Internet connection, and a credit card --- as well as some spare time that I did not have. (Perhaps I should have spent the minutes moving past page 100 of my work–in–progress, a fourth novel…
