I'm back from having a great time at Crimefest 2011 where I was delighted to meet fans of my DI Horton crime novels and my thrillers from the USA, Australia and the UK. It was also a pleasure to meet up with my fellow crime writers and my publisher.

5USA, Wednesdays, 10pm
It's good to be tipping our Stetsons to deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens again. All the winning ingredients of series one are back in the current season of Justified on 5USA.
Timothy Olyphant is as softly-spoken and laid back as ever, though having to hold off on his notorious trigger finger, having blown away so many drug dealers, mobsters and his dad last time round. He's resolved to…Continue

The award-winning Julius Katz mysteries have delighted thousands of mystery fans since first appearing on the pages of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine in 2009, winning a Shamus, Derringer and Ellery Queen’s Readers Choice Award .

For the past two months I've been vying for the same positions as Debbi Mack, a writer whom I hadn't heard of until I made the connection one Sunday morning not too long ago when I saw her name appear on the New York Times Bestseller List. Not only was I taken aback since…Continue

While I am looking forward to the May 27 live podcast at 8 a.m., I drunkenly crashed the G-Zone showyesterday evening. (OK, that's a lie, I was invited to an authors roundup by the host, but "crashed" sounds more exciting, doesn't it?)
I felt like an ant next to a herd of elephants amongst the other authors. Vincent Zandri. Big Daddy…Continue
The Danes Murders I've written a review of The Danes Murders, a true crime novel by Patrick Haley. Want to learn a little more about how you write, what tropes and writing schemes you rely on? I'm looking for more true crime, mystery, and suspense novels to review. My reviews are not cursory, topical, or based on what I like or dislike. They're put together based on an in-depth analysis of how you actually write. The…Continue

The price of travel is relative, for me I'd give up a lot to travel, with the exception of coffee and dark chocolate. In that order.
That being said, don't automatically assume that going to Europe or taking a cruise is impossible. A twelve day cruise from Rome going to Greek and Turkish Islands and Israel is expensive. As I said it's relative, but it can be had for $800 plus gratuities and tax, that will run about $1,000 total per person. Remember that it includes all the…Continue

What’s in a Genre?
Search around the Internet and you’ll find the popular opinion in the publishing industry that a writer should choose a genre and stick with it. If they want to dabble in other genres, they may want to consider a pseudonym. This is sometimes referred to as “branding” yourself and is particularly championed by agents and large publishing house as a means of establishing a loyal fan base who will avidly follow your…Continue

Recently my contract with a publisher was coming to term and I decided not to renew it. Sales were non-existent, and aside from that, I just wasn't happy with certain aspects of my novel (my fault). The cover didn't appeal to me either. I explained this to my publisher.
Follow my #7 Pro-active steps.

This friend is way too much fun! I have gotten a chance thus far to be a part of some very serious brain storming, incredible writing, and deadly execution by some really nice, talented authors. The latest release “Who Whacked the Blogger” just made me take a step back and gasp in awe as Benjamin Sobieck just gave birth to a new, intensely funny character that I hope to get to read for a long time: Maynard Soloman. I can’t do justice to the man’s riffs. His prose in this is just amazing,…Continue
One of the most interesting aspects of studying criminal behavior and criminology is finding out why and how criminals commit a specific crime. It’s really the complicated task of finding out what makes an individual tick and hopefully learning more about their…Continue

In what book does it relate the events surrounding Qwill's inheritance of the Klingenshoen fortune ? How was he selected ? What was his relationship to Fanny Klingenshoen ?
In "The Cat Who Played Post Office" we learn of the events after the inheritance, but not the circumstances leading up to it.
