This is recent Times feature article I wrote on the incredible new discoveries of what seabirds get up to far from land, and on the man who first visited seabird colonies with a scientific eye in the 1660s. It's sometimes still possible to write this kind of discursive essay! This one is about...

I had a lovely delivery this week – the advance reading copies of the American edition of Mistletoe and Murder arrived! These are special early copies for reviewers and booksellers, but now that they’re here, it means that there’s not long to wait at all before Mistletoe and Murder is published i...

Después de habérselas visto durante días con clientes soliviantados, Alfonso acogió con alivio al nuevo candidato al anónimo. Le gustó su aspecto y su corbata.

Time off in Virginia meant time off the blog, and some time off from writing, too. The car rides down and up the East Coast were long, but Miss New Teen, The Boy, and I listened to the S-Town podcast during the drive. It's just as good as people claim -- and probably just as ethically murky, too,... Read more of this blog post »

Oh yes, my ducks, I was once certain that my future wou'd be in drama, perhaps as a playwright but moft assuredly as an actor. Indeed, as a high school student I was determined, after graduation, to become "the next Boris Karloff" and make my living in horror cinema. (I had, after all, won Best...

Summer closed her eyes and I wondered if she was preparing to attack me. I could sense her frustration but I wasn't apologizing for anything.

Quando ho cominciato a scrivere dei libri, nel 1996, ventidue anni fa, ho sentito una voce, dentro la testa, che mi diceva «Ma cosa vuoi scrivere? Ma chi ti credi di essere, a voler scrivere? Ma non ti rendi conto che sei solo una merda e che non hai nessuna speranza di essere altro?».

My mother once told me, "Be in the world, not of it." I've pondered on this a lot lately. I've noticed more of my old-fashioned values and style bleeding through. I just cannot change that. I was raised in a very different manner than some and I cannot become less than I was raised to be.

Though the answer wouldn’t be obvious to unbelievers or even to most Christians, the Bible is clear on this: it’s Jesus. Psalm 45:6-7 is quoted in direct reference to the Messiah, in Hebrews 1:8-9, where the Father says of His Son: “You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore Go...

The foundation to success in life is a positive attitude. We all hear about it, we all talk about it and we all read about, but do we all have positive attitudes? Your attitude can go in three different directions – forward, neutral and backward.
