He can be found hiking high climbs in early fog before the sun burns through as mist vanishes to blue sky, or otherwise, he’s probably trying to write.

There is only wind and rain, and something else—a low howl, maybe, a snapping—probably just wind in the trees, probably nothing at all—so you go out into the storm to find her.(less)

While writing Before the Sun Hits, I was imagining how it would sound aloud, so listening will provide more entertainment than reading the book, if you’re into audio that is.

My apologies for the terrible accents. Next time, I'll be writing out... Read more of this blog post »

At first this seems like a detective story, with a psychologist playing detective. But that's not the twist...

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
"Whoa! This was brilliant!

This book right here is the reason that I love psychological thrillers. This has become an overly saturated genre with every one taking a stab at writing these twisty little mind fucks but more often than not they fall fl..." Read more of this review »

"FIVE STARS

THE SILENT PATIENT is a deep, dark tale of murder, love and revenge. This is a contemporary story steeped in a deliciously gothic tone. At the beginning of the book, we have a vicious murder, a frightening asylum setting for the criminal..." Read more of this review »

Carol Rifka Brunt
“I really wondered why people were always doing what they didn't like doing. It seemed like life was a sort of narrowing tunnel. Right when you were born, the tunnel was huge. You could be anything. Then, like, the absolute second after you were born, the tunnel narrowed down to about half that size. You were a boy, and already it was certain you wouldn't be a mother and it was likely you wouldn't become a manicurist or a kindergarten teacher. Then you started to grow up and everything you did closed the tunnel in some more. You broke your arm climbing a tree and you ruled out being a baseball pitcher. You failed every math test you ever took and you canceled any hope of being a scientist. Like that. On and on through the years until you were stuck. You'd become a baker or a librarian or a bartender. Or an accountant. And there you were. I figured that on the day you died, the tunnel would be so narrow, you'd have squeezed yourself in with so many choices, that you just got squashed.”
Carol Rifka Brunt, Tell the Wolves I'm Home

Lee Child
“lawn. Yard work summed up the whole futile procedure. First you spend a lot of time and money making the grass grow, just so you can spend a lot of time and money cutting it down again a little while later. You curse about it getting too long, and then you worry about it staying too short and you sprinkle expensive water on it all summer, and expensive chemicals all fall.”
Lee Child, Tripwire

Lee Child
“She looked away. Her name was Marilyn. Marilyn Stone. She had been married to Chester for a long time. She knew it all. She had no real details, no real proof, no inclusion, but she knew it all anyway. How could she not know? She had eyes and a brain.”
Lee Child, Tripwire
