Diane Capri Steps Into the Shoes of Jordan Fox

I recently had an opportunity to step into Jordan Fox‘s world and it was truly surreal. No, I wasn’t sent to solve a cold case or to investigate a suspicious airplane crash.

Saturday Special: Out Like A Lamb?

At the beginning of the month, I mentioned the idiom that March is “in like a lion, out like a lamb.” It’s hard to believe March is headed out already. Where does the time go? I’ve spent many hours this month finishing the final books in my False Truth Serial. False Truth 9 released this week. […]
