Diane Capri Reveals Lee Child (not Jack Reacher?)

There’s no nicer guy on the planet than my friend Lee Child. He’s kind, amusing, normal. What’s not to like? You probably feel the same. He’s smiling and blue-eyed friendly in all those author photos, right? What we see is what we get with Lee Child: So I asked him if he wanted to be Revealed […]

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 […]

Thank you, Steve Jobs

I blogged about Trailblazer Steve Jobs earlier this summer when he announced his resignation as CEO. At the time, a friend lamented, “He would never have quit if he wasn’t seriously ill.

Revenge: The Sue Grafton Way

Sue Grafton said she wrote her breakout novel, “A is for Alibi” to fulfill revenge fantasies during a bad divorce. Sue once told me that it saved her sanity to “kill the dude!” She’s now releasing her 22d Kinsey Millhone mystery, “V is for Vengeance,” which leads me to believe she’s still using this technique quite profitably. Reading mysteries and […]

Do you see what we see?

Ability to grasp the obvious is an essential life skill. Failure to perceive can be fatal. Or, as Judge Willa Carson says, “You never see the bullet that gets you.” It’s no wonder then, that it took me a while to grasp why artists on two continents chose mysterious eyes to adorn my novel covers.
