It’s been a busy time around here for us. We’re preparing for the annual “snowbird migration” when we move ourselves from Tampa to Traverse City for the summer. This is always a pleasure and a big job. We do look forward to the lilacs and the lake and all the wonderful summer produce Up North! […]

Full Metal Jack and Back to the Beginning

As you know, the Lee Child source book for Full Metal Jack is The Affair. I chose The Affair because it’s the story of the end of Jack Reacher’s career with the army and the start of his life as we know it. So in a real sense, we’re going “back to the beginning” in […]

As the author behind the Jess Kimball Thriller Series, I keep myself informed about cases of missing children. Despite years of dead ends and false clues […]

ARE YOU A MISSING PERSON?

Seriously. You could be a missing person and not even know it. Any of us could be. As you know, stories about missing people fascinate me. I’ve written about various ways people go missing in several of my books. Since I’m a mystery/thriller/suspense writer, the answers in my books are usually crime-related, of course. While […]

Accidents happen. Just ask Willa Carson. In my latest thriller, Night Justice, Judge Willa Carson is horrified when she hits a man with her car. She jumps out to help, but it’s too late.
