You’re familiar with the smartphone game sensation “Pokémon Go,” right? I mentioned it last week when I was telling you about the wanted man who was caught while playing Pokémon Go outside a Michigan police station. Lesson learned? Don’t hang out at a police station if you’re wanted by law enforcement! It seems obvious … but […]

The horrors! 😀 But it’s true, isn’t it? For book lovers, waiting for a new release is almost as annoying as scrubbing the bathtub. And the wait is especially agonizing when you’re reading books as part of a series. In that case, waiting becomes part of a complete emotional roller coaster, starting with the thrill of […]
We were talking this week about how drones can be used for very serious missions, like terrorism surveillance. Situations that would be too dangerous for humans. As a thriller writer, it’s a tactic I’m almost certain to employ in an upcoming book. In addition to military and surveillances uses, people are starting to get very creative with […]
Key West holds a Key Lime Festival every year. How did we miss this?! This year it’s July 2-4, 2016… but I wonder if it’s too early to sign up for next year?! As a snowbird, I spend much of the year in Florida, which means I’ve taken my fair share of trips to Key […]
Ah, bookworm problems… This is the story of my life! Yours too? Except, in my case this summer, the whole “new book, no sleep” thing applies not only to reading, but also to writing! Yes, I’m writing a new book. Several, actually. Let me catch you up: I’ve moved my home base from Florida to […]

Or maybe you are grateful for the man who is a father figure to somebody you love. Children remind us to look at things from a different perspective, don’t […]
If you’re an avid reader, you’re probably familiar with the struggles associated with reading outside. The glare from the sun on the screen of the e-reader, the book’s pages getting wet while you’re floating around the pool, the eye exhaustion from squinting…the list goes on. That’s why it’s not surprising that a Floridian invented Coppertone […]
Today, June 4th 2016, is National Cheese Day. Which means we’ll need some wine to pair with it, of course! FBI Agent Carlos Gaspar can help us whet our appetites. You remember the meal he devours in Jack in the Green, right? “The combination of ripe Bartlett pears, Gorgonzola cheese, candied walnuts and vinaigrette perfectly blended. […]
Happy spring, readers! It’s already April and I think I’ve failed to wish you a happy spring so far. I’ve been chained to my desk finishing my book about Michael Flint, The Heir Hunter… which makes me really appreciate the high patience level of good friends on days when I have to put writing deadlines […]
Writing about both central Florida and the DNA’s role in solving crimes this week, I was reminded of Jennifer Kesse, a well-known missing person’s case out of Orlando that I’ve blogged about before. This January (2016) marked the 10-year anniversary of 24-year-old Kesse’s disappearance. Are you familiar with the case? Her family works hard to keep […]
