For the past 12 days, I’ve been showcasing quotes from my mystery novel Twisted Justice on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Today is Day 12, and it feels appropriate to end with this excerpt from the book: There is a scientific explanation for why time seems to pass more rapidly as we age. According to this […]

One of my favorite things about the Tampa Bay Area (besides the beaches, of course…) is discovering the little nuggets of its unique history. That’s what a writer loves to do — we soak up everything. And in the process we’re able to see how the big picture developed and show it to you through […]
Sometimes, especially this time of year, I like to imagine we could all get together — you, and me, and our friends and families, and just be merry together. I so want to meet each and every one of you, and this seems particularly like the right season to do that. Of course, such a […]
Did you know that your Christmas might be very different if not for Washington Irving? He came to my mind recently because of that TV drama on FOX, “Sleepy Hollow.” It is, of course, inspired by Irving’s story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” published in 1820.

You’re looking at a very special image. Until now, you’ve only seen a 2-D version of Get Back Jack — the second book in my Hunt for Reacher series. Look closely, and you’ll notice this picture is 3-D. Okay, so it’s still flat on your computer screen, but in real life, there is now a […]

Willa Carson loves Coffee Con Leche. Carlos Gaspar likes coffee with loads of milk and sugar. Kim Otto drinks hers black, like me. In Get Back Jack alone, there […]
Her case is like one of my twisty plots that keeps us reading long into the night to find out what happens. Help us out here! Did she or didn’t she??? Four years ago this week, an Italian jury said Amanda Knox was guilty of murdering her British roommate. Two years later, another jury reversed […]
Are you thinking things may get better when pigs fly? No doubt you’ve seen it splashed on bumper stickers and greeting cards and just about everywhere. Comics like Woody Allen and Albert Brooks have spent decades entertaining us with variations on the wry joke that “Life Sucks – And Then You Die.” Yet, studies repeatedly […]
NEWSFLASH about NewsFlash! This week, our first NewsFlash! arrived at inboxes around the world. So what’s a NewsFlash! ? Think of it as sort of the anti-newsletter. The goal was to create a short and clear email note with goodies and gold nuggets of information exclusively to Diane Capri Crowd members. I don’t want to give […]
