An apple tree growing feral among the bushes past the guard rail puts out pale pink blossoms.

A towering tree is flowering on some branches, with groups of snow-white blossoms, and dead in others that show not a trace of green or white.

44 Hours by Donna Jay

Just letting you know my latest book is now available on Amazon. For those of you who have been wary of my books because of mention of BDSM you can rest assured there is no BDSM in this story. With that said, there are a couple of sex scenes.

Fellowship


April 6, 2020


Dear Readers,


One theme in my upcoming novel, The Counterfeiter’s Daughter, is the importance of fellowship. I write on the subject from personal experience. I’ve led a life of independence and, in many seasons of my life, a solitary existence. More than ever it is a relevant subject

Where Do I Get Ideas?

A novel is only as good as its ideas. So where do I get mine? Since I write historical fiction I read a lot and select the juiciest true stories for my fruit salad of a novel.
For example, one of the worst Nazi interrogators was Klaus Barbie. I read a cold blooded incident where he took a cat into t Read more of this blog post »

Raining underneath

by Mark Ryan – Check out more of his work here: Havoc and Consequence









Underneath. Down here where it’s calm.
Where the black beauty of the abyss touches my feet.
All is quiet.
All is still.
I’m entombed as if in a coffin.
Locked forever in my own space
Controlling the promise of my ever after.

Texting vs the Telephone

I guess I am old fashion but I prefer talking on the telephone when I am dating someone. It is hard to get to know someone over text. I feel like texting can be impersonal. It can also cause a lot of issues. You can’t tell what someone’s tone is really like through a text, which often leads to misco

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
