A lot of the books I write take place in Florida, and there’s good reason for that. Part of the reason we read is because we love escaping to another world, so why not escape to Florida? The gorgeous weather here is the perfect setting for Judge Willa Carson in my Hunt For Justice Series, for […]

Why I Love Florida: The Rainstorms
I know, I know. Florida is nicknamed the Sunshine State and that’s what we love about it, right? The abundance of warm, sunny days are perfect for reading on the beach, or for Judge Willa Carson to drive down Tampa’s Bayshore Boulevard in her convertible with the top down. Well, yes, Florida is called the […]
Why I Love Florida, Reason #5: Cape Canaveral
In a recent blog post, I referred to a cartoon that called the Cape Canaveral area of Florida “NASA’s Graveyard.” It was a joke, of course, but as a Florida resident and a Florida lover and an author who writes about Florida frequently, it’s worth pointing out what a neat place Cape Canaveral really is. In […]
Why I Love Florida, Reason #2: Miami
Do you know one major city in the U.S. founded by a woman? Take a guess at which city it is: Dallas, Texas Miami, Florida Chicago, Illinois San Francisco, California If you guessed #2, you are correct! (The title of this blog post might have been a good clue…) The woman behind Miami’s history […]
Why I Love Florida, Reason #1
There’s a reason a lot of my books take place in Florida. Lots of reasons, actually. But one reason? The weather. The stars of my books are smart women. Why wouldn’t they live in Florida??! 😉 Willa Carson loves the weather in Tampa. She drives a convertible named Greta, and she can’t understand why anyone […]
What We Know About the Witness Protection Program
I was telling you this week about victims’ rights, and one of their rights stood out to me as especially compelling — the right to witness protection, if it’s deemed necessary. The witness protection program is shrouded in secrecy. So it got me wondering: what do we actually know about it? We know something similar […]
You Asked: Diane Capri Books In Order
Several times a month, readers email me asking about the best order to read my books. I figured you may have the question, so I wanted to provide the complete list for you here. There are 4 series: Hunt for Justice, the Jess Kimball Thrillers, Hunt for Jack Reacher, and Hunt for Truth. You can […]
When DNA Provided Poetic Justice
A little earlier this week, I told you about three mysteries solved using DNA. In one case, the DNA helped convict someone. In one case, it identified remains. And in another case, DNA helped exonerate someone. You know I’m interested in justice, because of my background as a lawyer, and because of my Hunt for […]
The Longer the Book, The Better the Story?
The longer the book, the better the story, right? Not always. All books must have a final page somewhere. (That’s why I’m a fan of the series! There’s always the promise of another book coming soon.) But for those times when shorter is better, here’s what master fiction writer Stephen King says about short stories: “There’s almost […]
A Judge’s Penchant for Porcelain
Do you collect anything? Besides books, I mean 😉 Willa Carson from my Hunt for Justice series does. She collects Herend porcelain figurines painted in the fishnet pattern. Her collection sort of started by accident. She inherited Aunt Minnie’s collection. The same Aunt Minnie who gave Willa and George their house, Minaret. Aunt Minnie named […]
