Character Portraits from “The Death of Us”

Early on during the creation of my short story The Death of Us, I commissioned some character portraits from the wonderful Sarah De Buck, with the intent of including them in the story.

Disney went to their game plan of plucking out lesser known characters and then making them a big deal to the masses, and ba... Read more of this blog post »

Do we ever really consider how events on this Earth transpired? Do we ever look at gaps in the historical record and wonder, what if?

Of all the events that occurred in our lives do we sometimes look back with regret and wish they had happened differently?

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
