Details, crisp and crackling dialogue, and vibrant characters bring occupied Paris and her citizens to life. The story flies along at a breathless pace as tension mounts, builds, and never lets up. An instant classic noir. Highly recommended.

Eileen Charbonneau Great news all around, Rosemary! Where in CT? Might be able to meet in any of those 3 places! We are in the middle of a move and things are a little crazy, but I will make every effort to meet up! Please ssend details.


Daniel Keep reading and writing Eileen. I wish you all the luck in the world. I'll send you a link to my latest book.


Rosemary Hi, Eileen. How is your dramatic project going?

Recently, I heard the good news that my play The Little Death is scheduled to be produced in Seattle next October. I'm delighted. It's been a long time since the play was first done, and I'm confident the Seattle director will bring out the right sense of darkness in the story.

This December 5th, I have a signing scheduled in CT and plan to spend some time in Brooklyn and NYC. Are you anywhere nearby? If so, I hope we can meet up for meal.
