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.

Psychopaths are without […]

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 […]

Indie?  We had spent months quietly learning and testing the systems with one new original suspense e-book, Annabelle’s Attack, and four backlist Judge Wilhelmina […]

Diane Capri Reveals Indie Author Superstar CJ Lyons

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, before she became an Indie Author Superstar selling 250,000 copies of one of her e-books in just two months, CJ Lyons and I were members of a small critique group. I’m not sure how we got connected way back then because we had little in common. CJ lived […]
