AN OLD AFFAIR

First, the title has changed: I thought in hindsight that The Cry of the Single was suggestive of younger people than the two protagonists of this novel. And second, the writing is coming along slower than I had expected. It is quite a difficult subject to deal with, the renewal of a long-dead re... Read more of this blog post »

The Writer and the Beekeeper

My hands smell of spring. Flowers, pollen and honey. I've just opened my beehive to see what's going on in there.

This is the time when the population of the hive can explode. And, if I don't make room, the bees will swarm, scaring the neighbors and reducing the force of foragers who bring back t... Read more of this blog post »

Deceivers - Flash Fiction Story

I had a few requests to continue my short horror story Angels, so there’s a new episode titled Deceivers.

Here's a little excerpt from Deceivers -
Dead sycophants litter the pearly deck; bodies bent in misguided seduction. Filmy eyes stare as I pass, still echoing adoration and terror.

Blurb: The snick of a lock. The squeak of door hinges. The creak of a floorboard...

2019—FIFTY BOOKS

Book Number 15
To the Lighthouse
by Virginia Woolf

This is the first novel by Virginia Woolf I have read. I was fascinated by her writing style and doubt a book like this would be accepted by a publisher today.

The story: Not really a story at all. In the early part of the twentieth century, the Rams... 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
