Recommended Reading List: July, 2022

July was a good month for reading, only I can’t share much of what I read. I read wonderful manuscripts in my Romance Spies in-person class. The class was an advanced class, so all the writers were good. They were just trying a subgenre that some of them were unfamiliar with. I read incredible stories, and I hope those hit print soon enough. As a […]

Recommended Reading List: April, 2022

I was trying hurriedly to finish the next Fey novel, and everything else seemed to get thrown overboard. Much of what I read I liked, which is a nice change of pace from earlier in the year. I also think I’m a bit more […]

Recommended Reading: February, 2022

February got away from me. I was working on a deadline and dealing with several other things. Plus a nightmare course at school that I eventually dropped. (The course was cursed; the original prof had left the university suddenly, so they substituted a woman whose Spanish was as good as mine [which is to say, not great]. All the native speakers dropped out. It was […]

Recommended Reading List: January, 2022

Even though school started and I am now doing a lot of legal reading, I am managing to find time to get some leisure reading done.

News Update…Featuring Diving, Fey, Spade/Paladin, Short Fiction, and More!

Whoa. This fall, I put off my announcements waaaaaaay too long. I actually missed letting you know about “DNF,” the short story of mine that was in the 80th anniversary issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. Good news: you can still get copies, either from EQMM’s site or on Amazon or other sites. The bad news is that the secondary sites charge an arm and […]
