Did some real secretarial stuff today and prepared papers for Monday’s Steering Group meeting – which feels like getting more back to normal after the hiatus of the Easter holidays, conference etc. And God knows how much I like normal. If only I saw it more often.
The rest of the morning was spent visiting the new Manor Park campus – where Carol works some of the time as part of her mentoring remit. We walked there and back which took about 20-25 minutes or so each way, but…

Whew--finally A Treasury of Regrets is officially on sale. This Sunday I'll be doing a book signing in Hudson, NY, where I lived until four months ago.
Since I have no cash and no driver's license, I can't drive around for hundreds of miles to promote my book. But I CAN talk (endlessly) on the phone! So if you are in a book club (USA or Canada), or your friends are, and you like historical mysteries, please consider inviting me over, via your speakerphone, for a live…Continue

Meredith and I just got back from a book tour that took us all over Florida, ending up at Sleuthfest in Miami. We met lots of readers, book club members, booksellers, fellow authors, reviewers, and more. Let's not forget the bartenders!
The mystery/thriller community is a terrific one -- full of interesting, friendly and fun people. Our publishers, the folks at Oceanview, are just amazing. They are so supportive.
And the early reviews are mostly great!
Hope to see many…Continue

I was startled the other day when a friend defined me as competitive. I've always considered myself to be anything but. Indeed, the very antithesis of a competitive soul! I'll even opt out of activity rather than mess with a competitive feel...no board games, no gift exchange games, and no pretty much anything else where the only goal of the experience is to win something. I've been that way since I was a wee one.
On the other hand...I…Continue

In order to lure prospective new readers to my A World Ago blog (http://www.doriengrey.blogspot.com) I'd like to post here one entry...a letter written my parents on May 16, 1955, while I was a very young Naval Aviation Cadet learning to fly. If you like it, and I of course hope you do, perhaps you can check out the other more than 200 letters in the blog.
16 May 1955

Fast on the heels of my current book is the next, Paying the Piper. It's finished and the publishing elves are now working on it to get it ready for November. But you don't have to wait until November to start reading it. Dorchester has inserted excerpts in a number of their upcoming titles. You can find them in:
The Concrete Maze by Steven Torres (August)
The Bone Man by Vicki…

What do you think? Is a code of ethics outdated? Superogatory, necessary, or just semantics. In working on my dissertation, I am coming full circle on this question. I would be interested to see what you all think on this topic........
What accounts for ethical breaches on the part of law enforcement, and is there anything or anyone capable of intervening prior to an officer’s…Continue

I took this photo myself. What do you suppose the landscapers were trying to say with it? Thoughts? Donna?

Goodness, what a literary day today. The boss is back too, so we have to look super-professional and cutting-edge. Not that we don’t always look like that, of course – it’s just that we have to expunge that tell-tale trace of panic from our eyes …
Anyway, did a fair amount of website stuff, which I always enjoy, mainly on the Mentoring site, and we have plans for the Health Centre site too. Hurrah. About time it got updated. I’m sure we still have stuff about the Bubonic plague up…

I've spent the last hour posting on various forums and on my own blog, and it occurred to me that if someone actually finds my posts interesting enough to click on this page, and maybe even buy my book, they may wonder how to get it. Easiest way is to order on Amazon, where I have four ***** reviews, or on Barnes & Noble. You can also go to my publisher at www.virtualbookworm.com, then type in my name or Mood Swing in their online…Continue
