A STRANGER IN A NOT SO STRANGE LAND

I wrote a blog about the first three weeks of writing DHARMA SUTRA while based in Sin City, Pattaya, Thailand. I read it back and found myself cringing at the explicit nature of my honesty, about my mental and physical state at the time, especially the reference to oral herpes. It will appear at...

O Captain, My Captain

Stories about Frances Glessner Lee, even contemporary ones, often refer to her as an honorary police captain. Was her designation as captain honorary? Yes and no.

Lee was indeed an honorary captain in the Maine State Police, the Vermont State Police, the Massachusetts State Police, the Virginia S...

О редактуре своих текстов

Мы правим текст по мере написания. Причём не раз и не два. В итоге у каждого в день получается в среднем по 5-7 тыс. знаков с пробелами -- но уже почти чистого текста (кто другой счёл бы его совсем чистым, но мы в определённой мере перфекционисты). :-) Потом, когда написали большой кусок текста (...

A sexy space opera?...Me?

I have a confession to make. I’m not much of a sci-fi fan.
Unlike my hubby who grew up on E.E. “Doc” Smith, Dune, and Ring World, I never had much interest in the genre. But, my guy loved those books so during that mushy part of our early courtship, I tried to give them a shot. I’d get through a d... Read more of this blog post »

description
So, I was over at Anne’s place (as I usually am) and went to go take out some trash (cause apparently slave). The second I stepped out the door this tiny black kitten bounded up to me out of nowhere and started rubbing against my legs. It was so tiny, y’all! I mean, like, tiny tiny. It was only a...

Writing on Prednisone

Five weeks ago, my arm brushed against poison oak as I picked up my sunglasses. The rash spread and I needed to take the drug Prednisone. This is an immune system suppressor, and it calmed down the symptoms enough to halt the spread. The wonders of modern medical science.

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
