A Good Mystery Doesn't Always Have to Have a Crime

I've been busy adding to the Al Pennyback series, and in those I follow the rules of mystery writing; a crime, a criminal and victim, lots of clues, and a protoganist who faces long odds but prevails in the end.  A good mystery story, though, doesn't always have to be about a crime.  In my latest short story, Sour Note, a continuation of a series of stories about Louis Dumkowski, a born loser who…

Drop In

I share a blog with seven other authors of "international mysteries."

We don't post about our books, or the craft of writing, but rather about events of cultural, historical or human interest that occur, or have occurred, in the countries in which we set our stories.

And there's a new post every day of the week.

We hope you'll drop in:

Ahh, the life of a celebity writer...(OK, not quite a celebrity, not quite the life I imagined)

Congratulate me: last night I got a call from KION, our local CBS affiliate, to say that one of their reporters liked my story idea about how 9/11 affected me, their topic for the month, and wanted to film a feature…today.

She liked that I planted climbing red roses on two supports in the days following 9/11 as a memorial to the victims of the twin towers, and she liked that I had planted rudbekia, plants whose meaning according to Victorian tradition stands…

Are you an avid reader or a blogger? Trestle Press wants you!

Are you a blogger or avid reader? I bet you are, and if you are then I would really like to have a discussion with you. Why? Well let me say that we have plenty for you to read and we have many benefits for participating. The fun stuff we do and have done.

Review - Where the Bodies are Buried, Christopher Brookmyre

Book Title:   WHERE THE BODIES ARE BURIED

Author:  Chris(topher) Brookmyre

ISBN:   9781408702703

Location:   Glasgow

Publisher:   Little & Brown

Year of Publication:   2011



Detective Catherine McLeod was always taught that in Glasgow, they don't do whodunit.  They do score-settling.  They do vendettas.  They do petty revenge.



It's a lesson that has served her well, but Glasgow is also a dangerous place to make assumptions.  Either way she looks at it,… Continue

Updated my web page

In spite of the university always changing protocols and software and  passwords I managed to log onto my university account, edit the web page to include my latest books, and save it. Check it out! Learn about the four books i uploaded this summer. Thanks to the Kindle list we are actually starting to have some sales. It is amazing. Today someone in the UK downloaded my combined book of four Mystery Club novels. That would never have happened without Amazon and the Kindle list. It's an $8…

Get Over 60 New Twitter Followers in Twitter Hop

Last year at this time, I hated Twitter, but now I love it. It has become my favorite social network. Through Twitter, I’ve found new readers for my books, met bloggers, reviewers and interviewers who featured my books, kept up on news in my areas of interest, and just met some all around nice people.

 

Using Twitter takes some trial and error to get used to it, however, and that’s why I’m hosting Twitter Week on my blog. I…

Stuart Gustafson "Missing in Mexico"

To read or not to read, that is the question here. I mean Mexico; it is used many times in many ways in novels and not all of them good. I had trepidation and was a bit uneasy. Stuart Gustafson put that all aside very quickly for me. How? Why? I mean, really? Yes to all three. As you will see in the synopsis Stuart is a world traveler, has seen most of the globe, has flown many,many, many miles. My point is he was able to put that in print. He was able to convey to me what he saw while he…

NEDS HEAD.



On the same day they finally indentified Ned Kelly’s decapitated skeleton I wound up in Melbourne with his head. Well not Kelly's still missing skull exactly but a miniature version of the outlaws famous iron helmet. It’s what they give you when you win a Ned Kelly award. When I first saw the long list for the 2011 Neds the last thing on my mind was going to Melbourne. The list always has some heavy hitters, including previous winners, but this year there were more than a few. Getting…

David Levien "13 Million Dollar Pop"

When I finished reading this I heard “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns and Roses blaring on my XM/Sirius boombox, very fitting. This was my first read on a David Levien novel and it will not be my last. The character he has created in Frank Behr is nothing short of amazing and satisfying. He is fractured yet looking to seal the cracks kind of hero that had me enthralled the entire read. The code of ethics that Levien has instilled in him is simple, strong and unbreakable. It seems nothing…
