I've got about half a dozen stories in progress, most in various stages of revision. Trouble is, I can't seem to commit to any of them.
There's the one I wanted to submit to the New England Crimebake contest, but lost so much time during the 3-day power outage last week that I don't think it will be done in time (April 30). There's the one I want to submit to Mr. Bagley's anthology. A few others that I dusted off from when I wrote them years ago, and the two zombie short stories that…Continue

I'm so excited. I'm attending Malice Domestic for the first time this year. Until last year, I didn't even know it existed and now just the thought of being in the same room with some of my favorite authors has me goosebumpy and giggling like a school girl. Amazing to me!
Hopefully, while I'm in the room with the likes of Margaret Maron, Carolyn Hart, Cathy Pickens and so many others, their muses will shake an accusatory finger at mine and asked about that sorry work ethic of hers.…Continue

I have always loved animals, but was only allowed to have one cat during my childhood, but she conveniently disappeared, just like Harvey, our rabbit. Only later did I learn that lost meant sent away. My mother was a dog person and my father liked birds because they could whistle back at him or enjoyed the mirror as much as I'm guessing he did. The first thing my husband and I did when we moved into our first place was to adopt two kittens. Fanny…Continue

No, I don't mean my marriage is breaking up, heck we just celebrated 15 years what would be the point? I mean I need to divorce my current work in progress....actually I just need to divorce a chapter...but I can't seem to make myself do it.
See, that's my problem. I'm so married to my words I can't make myself delete them all together. I have three "deleted scene" folders for this current work because when I'm writing I just let the words and scenes flow. But then when I go back and…Continue

This seems like a pretty cool place to be.
I can write the books, but I'm just learning the ropes in terms of promotion.
But the internet is cool for these things. I'm sitting at my son's gymnastics class and posting a blog. Woo hoo. I love technology.
I don't have much to say this afternoon, but that won't last long. Thanks to all who have friended me.
I"ll be back later.

Very up and down today, I must say. In that order. Both me-wise and weather-wise. This morning was good. On all fronts (ho ho). Went into Guildford early and stocked up on underwear at Marks & Spencer. Where would I be without that shop? Today I've been bold and rebellious and actually bought bras that weren't white. Or black. Which are my usual bra colours. No, today I have bought, amongst other items, one pink and one light taupe bra. So I feel wild and free and liberated.…Continue

One day last fall, Michelle Becker and I reviewed the forensic sessions we'd attended at several writers' conferences. The classes were good—but the information often covered the same ground twice or left gaping holes. What we needed was a conference dedicated to solely to forensics.…Continue

Can you have a "claim to fame" if nobody remembers? I don't know if Al Gore invented the internet or not, but I myself coined the phrase "blatant self-promotion", commonly shortened to BSP. I can't prove it, but I defy anyone to disprove it.
Here's what happened. I've been a member of the online mystery community DorothyL (www.dorothyl.com) for at least a dozen years. Some…Continue

It takes a special frame of mind to embark on and complete a novel and I have to admit I am a long way from reaching that at the moment, despite enjoying the hell out of my writing my first book "The Fast Shuffle". I couldn't get the words on the page fast enough a few years ago when I raced through it and, even though it has yet to reach a big audience, I am proud as punch about it. It reflects my personality well, faults and all.
At the moment, I am writing dialogue and ideas for a…Continue
Please check the new anthology THE FLASH, edited by Peter Wild, published by Social Disease and featuring a story by myself (amongst many others much more worthy - see below). The title refers to the length of the stories: each one…Continue
