Murder Hotel

Long before I ever considered becoming a writer of murder mysteries, my wife and I would make a trip every winter to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It was an annual pilgrimage, a week of cross-country skiing in and around the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation. Every trip was memorable, but only one trip was memorable for murder.

It was the winter of 1985. Driving north, we caught the tail-end of a news item on the car radio, nothing unusual, something about an open murder… Continue

Goodbye 2007

The location of the annual New Year’s Eve Party had been in an established rotation for more years than they could count. A neighborhood tradition, eight families, each one taking their turn as hosts. Once every eight years it was Jimmy and Ellen Thomson’s turn. Always they followed John and Susan Berryman and preceded Marty and Ronnie Stansfield. The tradition, which began before any of them had children, had…

The Old Bitch

I am always looking for ways to connect with my readers. And so, from time to time, I devote one of my blogs ( to writing collaborative stories with my readers. I'll post the first few hundred words and invite my readers to write the story along with me. We write without a plan, without even an idea who our co-writers will be. Quite simply, I invite my readers to post the next section of the story as a comment at my blog.…

Thank you

I wanted to use this space today to thank Margery Flax and the Mystery Writers of America for hosting my book signing Friday at Book Expo America. And to those writers and MWA members that I met for the first time on Friday, it's a pleasure to meet you guys. I came home with a summer's worth of books to read. I hope you all had as much fun at BEA as I did.

Sometimes you stumble upon a really creative idea

Every now and then I stumble upon another author who's doing something truly interesting on a website. I don't know this author. I don't know what she writes. I don't know what her stories are about. I only know that I'm going to buy her book. And then I'm going to re-think my own website. Take a look at her website and then come back and leave a comment.

Okay, it may take me a while to figure out how to navigate here on crimespace, but, in the meantime, I'm curious, with Edgar Week approaching, who else is planning to be at the Edgar Symposium this year?
