I like to share comments I receive about my work. To day I want to introduce Omar Adam. He wrote to me to say how much he enjoyed my novel, Blood and Bone, and unlike many readers, he was able to tell me exactly why. For that valuable feedback, I've made Omar's comment my featured review this week on my web site. –…Continue

A number of crises in the last week caused me to put in lots of extra hours at the day job. Senior leaders catch heat when things go wrong, but life heats up for those of us in the public affairs business with any news, good or bad. The winds of political change and beaurocratic response blow unevenly.…Continue

I like to share comments I receive about my work. Today I'd like to introduce you to James Knight. We met Saturday at the Virginia Festival of the Book but he was already a fan.
Actually, it was James' wife Robin who bought my novel Russian Roulette for him. Later he wrote me a very complimentary email about the book. I love getting that kind of note, but it was even more exciting when James and Robin walked up to me at the Virginia Festival of the…

The Virginia Festival of the Book was as much fun this year as it has
been the last five. As always Saturday was a full day of watching
panels and greeting old pals, many of whom I never see except at
writing events. I had quite a pleasant group at my table for the
luncheon, and Julia Spencer-Fleming turned out to be an entertaining
Naturally the highpoint of the…

I like to share comments I receive about my work. Today I’d like to introduce you to Natalie Shaw.
I met Natalie at Borders Books in Waldorf a while ago. She wrote to me to say she enjoyed Russian Roulette and was sharing it with her book club. More importantly, she was the first reader to point out a continuity error in the book, which will be corrected in the next edition.
Thanks Natalie, for your…Continue

I recently enjoyed two very successful book signings. Borders Express in Fair Oaks Mall had more traffic than expected, and the Borders in Baltimore Washington International airport was an even bigger surprise. I guess people were in the malls and travelling on what turned out to be Spring Break weekend for a lot of schools.
I was also flattered by a mention on the…Continue

It’s hard to beat the fun and fellowship I have every year at the Bay to Ocean Writers Conference. This year was no exception. My presentation on the basics of plot was well received and I got to critique some really impressive manuscripts. I’ve already put in my bid to speak again next year.
In other news, my latest review was published in The Big Thrill, the newsletter of the International Thriller Writers. I got to write about , Keith Thomson's debut novel “Once A Spy”…Continue

Do you have a favourite pun? I consider myself a connoisseur of plays on words and I have a couple that I think transcend the average. The best spin the language more than once. Like this gem:…Continue
