10 Fabulous Books Set In Paris

  Paris offers an incredible backdrop for all kinds of stories. Whether it’s a historical tale, a thriller, a romance…the city itself adds a wonderful element of, well, je ne sais quois. My second book is set in Paris, and it was pure pleasure to write a story set in a city I love so much. I have been lucky enough to have visited Paris several times, and I was honored to have reviewers comment that reading my book made them feel like they were right there, nibbling croissants, climbing the Eiffel Tower, exploring the misty streets of Montmartre….… Read the rest

One Month To Go…

It seems like I only just launched my first novel…and now it’s almost time for my second one to be released! I’m about a month away from sending A MAGNIFICENT CRIME (Agency of Burglary & Theft #2) out into the world. The official release date is June 5, 2014. Just in time for summer beach reading, yes? I’ve been busy getting organized for my virtual book tour (a.k.a. … Read the rest

How To Tackle Revisions

A little while ago I sent the most recent round of revisions to my editor. Last week he sent me an email to say that everything was great, and he loved the changes I made. Yesssss. This is a great relief. It means we’re on track for the release of my next novel, A Magnificent Crime, in 2014. Although some writers don’t enjoy doing revisions, I actually love them.… Read the rest

Do You Ever Abandon Books?

I used to finish every book I started reading. Even if I didn’t like it, even if I was bored, I would push through. I guess it was the Type A in me. But times have changed. As I’ve grown older I’ve realized that life is too short to read something I’m not enjoying! There are too many books out there, and my TBR list is too unwieldy, to waste time like that.… Read the rest

Tackle Your TBR Read-A-Thon

I started a reading challenge this week! Tressa is a lovely book blogger I’ve come to know, and when she invited me to participate, I thought it sounded like so much fun I just had to join in. The idea is this: now that the kids are back in school, it’s the perfect time to take a big bite out of the HUGE To-Be-Read pile that so many of us have (me included).… Read the rest

Book Club: Gone Girl

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while–write a review of Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. But as I’ve said before, I barely have time to brush my teeth on a regular basis, let alone write book reviews…so I typically reserve this activity for the books that make the greatest impact on me. And frankly, this book rocked my world.… Read the rest

E-Readers: Love Them Or Hate Them?

I bought myself a Kobo e-reader about a year ago. A little Christmas prezzie for myself, in fact. I was planning to use it primarily for travel (like most people)…but now, a mere 12 months later, I find that I’ve been wholeheartedly converted. This is something I never thought would happen. I love books. I love the look of books. I love the feel of books.… Read the rest

On The Island: Wonderful Publishing Story, Lovely Book.

I recently read the book On The Island by Tracey Garvis Graves. Admittedly, my primary reason for reading it was my fascination with this author’s path to publication. This is a woman who, after slugging it out trying to get her novel published via the traditional route, decided to self-publish. Now, publishing a novel yourself–if you’re hoping for any degree of success–is notoriously difficult.… Read the rest

Moms Chasing Dreams: How To Manage Your Time

I don’t know how you do it all. People say this to me, from time to time. And they’re referring to the fact that, admittedly, I have a fair few things on the go. But I’m not alone in this–MANY moms have multiple roles, multiple responsibilities.  Truth be told, sometimes I’m not exactly sure how I do manage it. Also, sometimes I *don’t* manage it, and then the meltdown begins. … Read the rest

On My Bookshelf: The Virgin Cure

I don’t often do this. I barely have time to brush my teeth on a daily basis, let alone write book reviews, but in this instance I just couldn’t stop myself. I recently finished devouring reading The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay, and because it took my breath away, I had to write about it. You can see my review on Goodreads, or read it here: The Virgin Cure is a fabulous book.… Read the rest
