I have been blown away by reading "Hild" - and re-reading it many times since this July - and have built up a stack of copies for Xmas presents too.
I have put it on our book club's list but I am writing to ask what the date is for UK publication of the paperback. At the moment...

Prompt: Dex gets a cold and Sloane has to pamper him awwwwwwwwwww.
Sloane stirred the bubbling pot of soup when a low groan caught his attention. With a frown, he turned off the stove before heading into the living room to see what the hell his partner was up to this time. He stop...Read more of this blog post »

It's 6:00 p.m., and I haven't gotten a thing done on the WIP, because the edits came in for WHAT LIES BEHIND! I haven't seen this book in two months, so I'm excited to dig in and reacquaint myself with the story. And of course, I had a fun conversation with my editor about the eerie timeliness of...Read more of this blog post »

When I went to bed Monday night, my first novel, The Greatest Show on Dirt, ranked No. 3 on Amazon among all Kindle baseball books. That’s rarified air for me, and I stayed up a bit too late checking my sales, enjoying an unusual night when they came in at a 4-5 per hour clip. If not for an all-d...Read more of this blog post »

The toast is burnt
The coffee spilled
The car broke down
I'm more than late
Didn't sleep a wink
Ain't been to bed
The wife's been out

Lord there must be some better way
To start the day
Than getting up!
