Battle of the Concealers: Maybelline, ShapeTape, ITCosmetics

I have been looking everywhere for a long-lasting, pigmented concealer that will cover up dark circles and everything else I want to hide. I had been hearing about ShapeTape forever so I decided to buy a tube and put it to the test. I had Bye Bye Under Eye which I’ve used and liked for years, and...

Hellbent for Letterbox | Dodge City (1939)

What Do I Want?

I feel like I never really know what I want. All my desires war within until I’m turned on and turned inside out. Bend me over the bed. Run your fingers across my hot skin, barely skimming the surface and still searing down to the bone. Comment on how wet I am for you. Laugh […]

Sarah Price’s Review of The Wish by Patricia Davids

One of the greatest joys in my life as a reader and an author is finding a book that I cannot put down. From the perspective of a reader, it means the book has a great (and well told) storyline. From the perspective of an author, it means it’s well written and, if about the Amish, it’s authentic....

Now and again, when I wake up and find myself in a new house (having moved here in August), I say, "What happened?" I decided writing about the journey might tell the both of us... so that's what I did.

Amazon Super-Bargain Sale Found for Insidious Assassins

There is a peculiar allure of insidious characters — and especially assassins, hit men, and their ilk.  Perhaps we find their uncomplicated moral codes and brutal efficiency appealing.  These characters care little about ethics — and perhaps that alone, that freedom from guilt, is exactly why we...

Some Secrets Don’t Stay Buried.

Something big is coming. People will go to any lengths to hide their sins. Bury them. It’s not paranoia. Dark secrets lurk where your eyes don’t go. They’re all around you. Tucked behind smiles. Concealed with makeup that’s starting to crack. So you dig. Sift. Uncover. You brace yourself for the... Read more of this blog post »

tell me a story

 I wasn't planning on this.  But in no less than two novels, characters are going to sit down in lulls in the actions and gather 'round the fire -- literally in one case, in the other they can't get the fire wood -- and one of them is going to tell a story. . . .

Upheld in Hot Chocolate and Donut Holes


It’s Dark

“Time to get u-up!” I sang in the bedrooms of both my children. Despite their groans, they rolled over and jumped out of bed. During their growing up years, our family Easter tradition was to watch the sun rise. I have never been a morning person, but I got myself up in the wee hours to...

State of Nowhere

Through the pink rose hallway
in the gray apartment building in
the gray and broken down city,
lions whisper from wall holes.

Circular stairs always in motion
spinning like a tornado
in the winter snow.

A hand grabs my own.
There’s nothing to see
but everything to feel
the floor exhales
an icy mist and the... 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
