New Book News!

My latest novel, Three Blonde Mice, the sequel to Princess Charming, was officially released in August from Diversion Books! Set at a farm resort in Connecticut, it features the three best friends from Princess Charming (Elaine, Jackie and Pat) spending a week as agritourists, learning how to milk a cow, make cheese, and forage for wild edibles. They also take cooking classes with a famous farm-to-table chef, along with eight other guests of the resort - only to find that one of the guests is harboring a very deadly grudge against the oblivious chef. To further complicate their “haycation,” Elaine’s erstwhile boyfriend Simon shows up just as she’s hoping to move on with an attractive guest named Jonathan. Ah, romance. Three Blonde Mice is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and your favorite local independent bookstore.

In other news, Diversion Books has now reissued eleven of my backlist novels, including Princess Charming, with pretty new covers. I love them and hope you do too!

A New Novel Is on the Way!

I’ve just finished a new novel and my agent is reading the manuscript now. I don’t want to give away too much about the plot in case I end up making a lot of changes, but I can say it’s a comedy with supernatural/fantasy elements about a woman who works at a classic rock radio station. She’s taking calls one morning for a giveaway of two tickets to a Metallica concert when someone very close to her - someone who died three months earlier - is on the phone, rocking her world. Much more to come about the book!

It’s Been a Long Time – and a Long Winter

I haven’t written a Mainly Jane post for months, and I can’t blame the snow. But Northwest Connecticut sure did get a lot of the white stuff and after living in California for many years I wasn’t thrilled about it. But spring is here (except it’s supposed to snow again today – ugh) and I […]

The “Three Blonde Mice” Book Launch = Fun!

James Arena, the talented pastry chef at Litchfield County’s Arethusa al tavolo, the scene of my book signing on Saturday, August 6th, not only created a Dark Chocolate Marquise dessert especially for Three Blonde Mice (yes, the recipe is in the book), but he assembled a beautiful display of the dessert for everyone to drool […]

Lights, Camera, Video!

We finally finished the video book trailer for Three Blonde Mice, and it’s a lot of fun. (Be sure to stick around for the credits! They’re the best part of the video!) Matt Senecal, the farm guru at Arethusa Farm Dairy in Litchfield, CT, was a great sport. He not only let me milk a […]

Horrors!

The Yankees won ONE measly game in the home series against the Angels. ONE game. Tonight’s loss in the three-game finale was especially pathetic. It doesn’t matter how many homers Aaron Judge hits this season if the defense is rotten and the pitching is mediocre. The Angels are not having a good year, but you’d […]

Swept by the A’s. The Indignity!

What a miserable, miserable road trip. The Yanks won one measly game – the opener out West against the Angels – and after that? Nothing but losses. What’s more, CC landed on the DL with a strained hamstring, Sanchez and Hicks got banged up with what are being called “day to day” injuries and Holliday […]

Boo Hiss

After so much winning, it stinks to lose a series. And it particularly stinks to wake up from a deep sleep, check  the Yankees score and find out all was not well in Anaheim. The Yanks dropped two of the three games, losing CC in the process to a strained hamstring. That one really bothered […]

Murderers Row 2.0

Who scores a gazillion runs per game? Against tough division rivals yet? The 2017 Yankees do – and did. They destroyed the Orioles this weekend with an offensive barrage the likes of which we haven’t seen since the guys in the photo above. Instead of them, insert Judge, Sanchez, Hicks and Castro. And throw in […]

Sanchez Emerges From Slumber

What a satisfying series against the Red Sox! No, we didn’t sweep, but beating them two out of the three games felt great. What stood out for me was last night’s Gary Sanchez Show with his two homers. If his swing is really and truly back, imagine what it will mean for the Yankees’ offense. […]

Split Decision

The Blue Jays won two. The Yankees won two. And that’s the story of the four-game series in Toronto. Along the way, the Yanks pitched well (I’m so impressed by the kid, Montgomery – he came from nowhere to be one of our most reliable starters) and not as well (Pineda had one of his […]
