Mike Dennis is no stranger to readers of this blog. A frequent commenter, his novel, Setup on Front Street, made my Best Reads of 2011 list. The Take made one of my monthly lists this year, and his short story, The Session, is one of the small handful of best short stories I’ve ever read, regardless of genre.
It was a treat to sit next to him on this year’s Bouchercon panel, moderated by Peter…Continue

The Cold, Cold Ground, Adrian McKinty. If there’s ever been a better historical mystery written, let me know. McKinty…Continue
Those who actually experience the cold winds and heavy snows have learned to adjust: they either hibernate like a bear, or they dress appropriately and go out and continue life, experience the fresh air, make snow angels in the covered grass and basically thumb their noses at 'old man winter'.
I am originally from Wyoming, have been in North Carolina for 1 1/2 years (yes, I got spoiled by the warm temperatures), and now we are preparing for the army transfer up to Alaska.

In the order in which I read them:
Crooked Numbers, Tim O’Mara. The second book of what is shaping up to be an excellent series. He has a franchise brewing here. Don’t be surprised to see Raymond Donne on television someday. You heard it here first. (Unless you already heard it elsewhere. This is the first I’ve heard of it.)
Saturday’s Child, Ray…Continue

2014 promises to be another productive and interesting year. I'm not the sort of person to make New Year's Resolutions but I do like to set goals and then measure the achievement of them throughout the year. This comes as a result of my business background in Marketing and Training where goal setting is important just as long as those goals are realistic and achievable. …
