Mark R. Hunter Mark R. Hunter's blog:
We had such a nice, warm winter going on there.

(Well ... "nice winter", is relative. But in northern Indiana, if the temperature stays above freezing for any amount of time between late December and the end of January, that's a nice winter.)

I wanted it to continue. I contacted my state representa... Read more of this blog post »

Michael  McClung Michael McClung's blog:

Time for another new book release from me, and this time it's a Christmas novella! Yep, something a little different from me - although still with a slightly sexy edge - and the first Christmas-themed story I've written since The First Christmas Without You all those years ago.

Peter L. Berger Peter L. Berger's blog:

Robert Kagan’s appeal as a thinker has always been that his arguments are less saccharine or sentimental than those of his ideological fellow travelers. One could describe his project as an attempt to show that the steely pose of most foreign policy “realists” is compatible with advocacy for Amer...

So I took Guest Dog Gibbs in for a checkup today--just the ordinary vet thing. We needed to put her on a health plan (cha-ch$ng!) and get her checked out--and pay for a nail clip.

Her front nails were getting out of hand.

It turns out that the kneecaps of her back legs are displaced-- they slide in... 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
