Nothing but 5-star reviews for Empty Rooms (the first book in the Krebbs and Robey Casefiles--get in on the ground floor), and praise from giants of thriller writing!
Michael Connelly said, "Empty Rooms is a searing, no-holds barred journey into darkness. Jeffrey J. Mariotte knows the key is character, character, character and has delivered a story about men who relentlessly work the case at the same time the case works them. I was pulled in from the start on this one and it…Continue

There are a few moments in a writer's life that stand out as landmarks. Holding that first published book in your hands is one of them. The first check is nice, too. Then as each successive book is published, getting it and turning it around, looking at the binding, examining the cover--these are all special, wonderful experiences. Something that you wrote, someone else cared enough about to edit and publish and now it's not just an idea but a thing, solid and real. The joy that accompanies…Continue

Next weekend is the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, which I used to regularly attend before moving to Arizona made it somewhat more difficult.
But I will be there this year, and not one but TWO new books will make their debuts there. My thriller The Devil's Bait, originally available only as an e-book, will make its print…Continue

Thriller THE DEVIL'S BAIT just keeps scooping up rave reviews. The latest, at WebbWeaver (http://webbweaver-zelda555.blogspot.com/) says, in part:
"The action is fast-paced with many twists and turns and Mariotte has obviously done much research on the intricacies of banking transactions.
"The Devil’s Bait is an intriguing tale with loads of action and well written characters and I’m giving it 41/2 spiders."

I'm primarily known (where I'm known at all) as a novelist and as a comic book/graphic novel writer. I haven't published a whole lot of short fiction, partly because I haven't pursued that area, and partly because when I do get story ideas, they tend to be big, sprawling ones. Novels, in other words.
But lately I've been the recipient of various bits of happy news on different short stories.
At the invitation of a producer for Tucson's NPR radio station, KUAZ, I wrote a…Continue

I've been slow to embrace the e-book.
Since 1980, I haven't had a job that hasn't revolved around books--printed books--and publishing and writing and words. I've worked in just about every aspect of those fields, and I'm admittedly biased toward books printed on paper.
But the world is changing fast. Bookstores (including…Continue
