For a book club I belong to, I picked Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham to discuss, so I know I'll be reading that book. While at Sleuthfest 17 last February, I picked up books by David Baldacci and Reed Farrel Coleman, so those are on my list, and I recently downloaded Foreign Eclairs by Julie Hyzy. There are more, but I need to get off the computer so I can start reading.(less)

I would love to know what happened to them, what they are now doing, but I don't see those stories as interesting enough for a book. There's one person I knew well for a couple years who later wouldn't acknowledge any contact. I wish I knew why. I suppose a plot could be developed around that, but it's not one I wish to pursue. Where I get my ideas are from events that don't touch me personally but trigger my imagination. Two hunters being killed not far from where I lived triggered the idea for THE CROWS. Seeing a boat explode on Lake Tahoe, tossing its two occupants into the lake, triggered the idea for EAT CROW AND DIE. Watching a TV interview of Elizabeth Smart triggered the idea for ECHOES OF TERROR. (less)

Last week I finished reading Lisa Gardner’s novel, Catch Me, and it started me thinking about some of the critique sessions I’ve sat in and blogs I’ve written that cover topics like point-of-view and how to format a manuscript. Why? Because in that book, Lisa uses both first person and … Continue reading →

A friend recommended I read Dangerous Friends and I’m so glad she did. I found the story timely, well written, and fast paced. Thank you, Dallas Gorham, for writing a well-developed character and enjoyable private eye mystery.
