My special holiday reading continued until December 18 when, to my surprise, I found I couldn’t read yet another story about any holiday ever, thank you very much. I even switched to very bloody mystery stories (with a holiday theme) and that didn’t even work. So I wandered around, lost, for a day or so, and then decided I could stop reading holiday stories and […]
According to Officer Nick Mantino, Nutball Season runs from Halloween to Christmas. This Christmas season, he sees more than his usual number of nutballs.
Like the geezer who thinks he has been cast in Miracle on 34th Street. And Mrs. Billings, who tells everyone she will shoot Santa if he lands on her roof.
Mrs. Billings’ threats scare the local children, so Nick must investigate. What he finds in Prudence Billings’ house scares him too—and makes him wonder if he will join the list of candidates for Nutball of the Year.

November flew by for reasons I have yet to figure out. Almost all of my reading was wonderful, and I really had to work to find time to list everything. I started some of my holiday reading early, not because I want the year to end (which is different from last year), but because some books arrived that I couldn’t wait to read, so I […]
Cat’s love for John inspires the bestselling romances she writes. Her heroes and heroines experience what she cannot: John’s touch.
John, too, longs for Cat’s touch. Instead, he protects her. But protecting the living comes with risks. If he goes too far, he could lose her forever.
When Cat’s romance novels bring an uninvited guest to her door on Christmas Eve, the choices she and John make could finally allow them to consummate their relationship—or end their time together forever.

I started the Holiday Recommended Reading List when I realized that I point out all the great holiday stories in January, after the season has passed. I am always a month behind in reporting what I read. So I wanted you to find the great stories that I’ve enjoyed over the months. I love holiday stories of all kinds. I save up the stories to […]

I’m line editing another Fiction River, so some of my reading time has been taken up with that. And I had a workshop at the end of the month, the Business Master Class, which kept us all going 24/7 (okay, there was a little sleeping in the middle of it all). So less reading time than I wanted. Of course, there’s always less reading time […]
I spent a delightful week of the month reading stories for the Mystery Workshop that I conducted here on the Oregon Coast. The writers were truly spectacular and even the stories that missed some details were wonderful to read. I could envision them in any of the mystery markets. I can’t point out the stories to you at the moment, but will if I see […]
Because my life has been unbelievably hectic this past month or two, I wasn’t able to update you on my latest publications as I promised I would. I have had several—although not as many as I will have this fall. So in no particular order, let me share the recent publications. The latest Uncollected Anthology, Mystical Melodies, hit the virtual stands last month. My new […]
If you’re a regular reader of my Recommended Reading List, you know that I love romance novels. It took me years to screw up my courage to write a romance novel, and then I stumbled into the genre somewhat accidentally. I wrote goofy paranormal romances as Kristine Grayson. I’ve also written a couple of romances that aren’t goofy or paranormal as Kristine Kathryn Rusch. While […]
