Les in New Mexico posted a review on Amazon about The Troubleshooter: “Entertaining action story. Well written action romp. In this story we get to know Hannibal Jones, a tough hero with a social conscience. He can "take a licking and keep on ticking". He's too good to be true, but interesting and entertaining. Overall, a good light read staged around some serious issues.…

A while back, I started an off-the-cuff project called the Crime Writer's Guide to Firearms & Knives. It started as a way to debunk some of the myths about weapons in crime fiction. It soon morphed into a beast of its own, including a glossary and a bit of weapons…Continue
I travel the subway in Toronto pretty frequently so there's no missing the fact that a lot of people are doing their reading on Kindle and a wide variety of other electronic devices with equally unlikely names. And up until now my mystery novel Dead Bunny was only available in that primitive "book" format. Hard to believe people still risk injury to fingers and wrists by manipulating those clumsy masses of paper and glue. I've heard that until the Kindle came along, 3 out of every 19…Continue

At an author event last week at the Logmark Bookstore in Cheboygan, MI, I was talking with two other writers about how completely we become absorbed in the book we're writing. It wasn't a new conversation; authors often speak of being immersed in a world of their own creation. When we finish a book, it's like waking up and becoming re-involved in the world outside our heads.We're probably lucky if we find that our significant others still live in the same house and our children haven't…Continue
