New blog post: newspaper coverage for Cataline book

I really appreciated being interviewed the Quesnel Cariboo Observer Lindsay Chung earlier this year. Lindsay is away from her editor’s post for a while.

A SERIES TO GET LOST IN

The Heirs of Eldon (World of Samar #2) The Heirs of Eldon by M.L. Hamilton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Epic fantasy is new to me. And I have to admit when I first started reading Book One, EMERALD: THE TALISMAN OF ELDON, in preparation for its recording, I almost stopped. I did stop. Epic fantasy requires commitment and I wasn't ready at t Read more of this blog post »

I just bought five Tim Miller novels because cancel culture

is one hundred percent lame and not in standing with modern American character. It is a blight on one's conduct to whisper and conspire against people while ignoring the skeletons in your OWN closet. Burning down a building is not brave in 2020. It's just socially acceptable. The bravest thing you c Read more of this blog post »

Life moves fast

I had to take a second the other day to realize how fast life really goes.

At this time last year, I thought maybe, one day, whenever the time was right, I'd write a book. Little did I know that in a year I would have just typed "the end" on the first draft of my SECOND book and my debut novel is le Read more of this blog post »

How I came up with the story for Blood and Bone

I thought it might be interesting to discuss how I came up with the concept for Blood and Bone. For context, the story follows Jack O'Donnell, a middle aged rock star who finds an unlikely ally in a journalist, Erin Langford. As he tells his story, we go back in time to the 90s when he first started Read more of this blog post »

I'm realizing that it really doesn't matter how well you write or how good your novel might be, but it's all about WHO YOU KNOW. If you don't know the right people, you'll never become a popular author.

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
