So? What did I miss? I’m back home now, and I’ve just finished unpacking my bags from a thrilling trip to New York City! The 11th annual ThrillerFest was held July 5-9, and this year’s conference of thriller writers was especially exciting for me. My Hunt for Jack Reacher novel Jack and Joe was a Thriller Award Finalist for Best E-Book […]

Reflections from my trip to NYC for ThrillerFest
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 […]
Famous Siblings: Who’s Your Favorite?
Is DNA destiny, or is life one big chess game? Even though Jack and Joe Reacher are strikingly similar physically, I think Joe Reacher would prefer to think of life as one big chess game. Jack’s like that, too. He’s strategic, but he also takes control physically of every event, play by play. But when […]
Tubthumping Women Rule in Fatal Distraction
Fatal Distraction, like the rest of my books, is about strong women who never, never, never give up until they triumph over life using their inherent gifts – and sometimes, humor and an equalizer. Jess Kimball and Helen Sullivan don’t have to bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan, but they know […]
Diane Capri Reveals Paul Levine

What? Me? Indie? Yikes!
I love e-books. I’ve loved my Kindle since the moment we met. Yet, although I’ve been writing my entire life and owned a business for decades, indie publishing seemed foolhardy. Too many mountains to climb, too much resistance, too hard, too much investment, too little reward, I thought. But the situation is not what I […]
Monday Mystery Mob ™
Start your week with a little mystery. Match wits with the Monday Mystery Mob™. What’s your solution? #1 – Death After Dinner The Monday Mystery Mob™ had finished their schnitzel, gathered strudel and schnapps. Helga Bittner settled in to lead the after dinner traditional crime puzzle discussion. “We’ve got a good one tonight. You’ll never […]
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. […]
