Happy Birthday, Fortuna

In June of 2015, my agent and I sold a novel on proposal.

It was a middle grade project. I’d submitted a synopsis and the first twenty pages, and at first, that was good enough for the publisher. Up until that point, the biggest challenge for me in my writing career had been turning in quality re... Read more of this blog post »

Confessions from the Horrible Writers' Club

I know how hard it is to write a story and sell it, so my intention with this one is not to ridicule any other writer’s work per say. Everyone writes duds, and everyone has typos (those with professional editors are not exempt from the typo forgiveness clause). But come on people, professional st... Read more of this blog post »

Il mio prossimo libro

Il mio prossimo libro s’intitola “Il populista”. E’ la storia di un cittadino esasperato dalla politica che decide di vendicarsi in proprio colpendo Buffini, il politico del momento. Una reazione estremea che gli permetterà di ritrovare se stesso liberandosi dal proprio ego.

Not Even My Characters Are Poets

Perhaps I could share a few lines on my progress
A verse or two about the book coming next
But Emily is awful rhymed with Book Three
Nothing that sounds like Joseph agrees with me
One thing that’s easy for me to admit
Is that I am most definitely not a poet

I thought I’d try something a bit different

This one isn’t a drug-fueled interracial gangbang spectacular – they can’t all be – but instead a romantic threesome, just me, Suzy and Kate. Suz... Read more of this blog post »

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
