My Books Shall Guide Me

I'm extremely excited to be going to England sometime this year to visit my in-laws. I haven't been in about ten years, and I'm already planning my itinerary.

Much to my husband's chagrin, it's all based on what I have written, what I am writing, and what I'll be writing.

Writing a Book

Writing a book is similar to floating in the middle of an ocean. No life jacket, no boat. Not another swimmer in sight. Some days, the sheer work involved in keeping your head above water becomes overwhelming. You spy that distant island with the palm trees, sandy beach and unsalted water—the poi...

In Neil Simon’s 1976 film Murder by Death, Truman Capote has some pet peeves. He berates his dinner guests, who are all mystery writers, about how they’ve cheated their readers over the years. His character puts it like this:

Subverting Expectations: How Plot Twists Work (and Don't Work) on Game of Thrones

After the finale of “Game of Thrones,” I’ve seen the phrase “subverting expectations” being used as a tongue-in-cheek euphemism for “bad writing.” So let’s talk about plot twists. I’m going to use a few major events from the show as examples, so if you haven’t finished the series, click away now... Read more of this blog post »

Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for.

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
