Beware: Psychopaths Among Us (Part Two)

We’re back today with therapist and writer Louise Behiel, author of the terrific new release Family Ties, discussing the Psychopaths Among Us, and particularly the villain in my latest thriller, Fatal Distraction.

Beware: Psychopaths Among Us (Part One)

Because the stronger the villain, the better the story, I chose a true psychopath for Jess Kimball’s Fatal Distraction nemesis.

True! The Tell-Tale Heart(less)

Have you read The Tell-Tale Heart? Edgar Allen Poe, perhaps the father of the modern thriller, published this short story in 1843.

Fabulous Florida: Experience the Sunshine State

I’m a Florida writer. I love my adopted home because, well, what’s not to love? We live in paradise. We wear flip flops year round, drive convertible cars, drink margaritas by the pitcher, and get invaded by pirates once a year (in addition to Yankees, Cardinals, Tigers, Braves, Bears, Seahawks, etc.). Everybody wants to escape […]

Snowbird Migration Time Again (Or “Adventures in Flying”)

As regular readers know, we’re snowbirds. Birdwatchers know snowbirds, right? Now’s the time when all of this stuff should be gone from our neighborhood, with luck. Time when a Florida snowbird’s thoughts turn to Michigan’s lilacs and strawberries and Cherry Festival. We’re hoping this year’s flight north is much, much better than last year’s. In […]
