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. I was invited to a press event – a VIP reception and preview of the “Dalí and da Vinci” art exhibit at St. Petersburg’s Dalí […]
“In like a lion, out like a lamb.” That’s the expression assigned to the month of March, and so far, it’s holding true in many parts of the U.S., including here in Florida. In my thriller Fatal Distraction, Jess Kimball remarks: “The day was cool but sunny and dry, the kind of weather Floridians loved […]
