So since this book released on 11.12.18 I figured I’d put up another little sumthin’ sumthin’ from it to whet your book reading appetite and get you to buy the book if you haven’t yet. Yeah, I know: I’m not above a little subtle (or in your face!) bribery at this point in my lif...

Edward Lorn Edward Lorn's blog:

Yesterday night, after dinner, I had to break my mother’s heart. She asked me what I was bringing to Thanksgiving this year and I answered her question with a question.


“Is Gina coming?”


“Yes,” she answered.


“Then we’re not coming.”


She didn’t have to ask why. She goes to the same church my sister do...

Writer no more - at least for a while.

With some regret, I say to you that I cannot go on being the proverbial Jill of All Trades.

My first responsibility is to my husband. How can I provide for his needs - attend to his ever-increasing care as a frail, aged gentleman - if I'm worn out, slaving ove... Read more of this blog post »

When I sat down this week to rewatch Scream, I did so as part of a horror-binge inspired by my first American Halloween experience. The first time I saw it, I was doubtless too young: I was ten at the time of its 1996 release, and while I was...

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
