Spear of the Sigilla

First blog.

Not sure what a blog does, but I plan to find out! For those who have read 'Last in His Class'... thank you. Working on two books at this time. One which follows the first book and one that could be loosely called a prequel.

We Are All Ms. Hervin Khalif

A simple definition of an empathic is someone who can ‘understand and share in the feelings of another’. With the aid of the inner eye, we can even witness what a person is going through from a description or narrative of far away events. People with sympathetic abilities contribute to the advanc...

Quid Pro Quo

There’s been a lot of talk of quid pro quo lately and I think it’s worth discussing because it’s prevalent in our society, albeit rarely formalized. With Trump and Ukraine, for example, it’s pretty clear that there was a quid pro quo even though nothing was written down; no conditions or restrict... Read more of this blog post »

Book Review: The October List by Jeffrey Deaver

Published in 2013. This is quite a unique book because it’s a novel in reverse. In other words, the last chapter is first. So instead of having to wait for the ending, the reader knows it up front and then the other parts fit in. In this case, knowing the ending didn’t tell me how it began. There...

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
