My most recent novel, Three Blonde Mice, the sequel to Princess Charming, was released in August 2016 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 AmazonBarnes & Noble and your favorite local independent bookstore.

Also available from Diversion Books are reissued editions of eleven of my backlist novels, including Princess Charming, with pretty new covers. I love them and hope you do too!

A New Nonfiction Book Is in the Works!

Instead of the new novel I was planning to write, I’ve decided to plunge into a nonfiction project - sort of a companion piece to You’d Better Not Die or I’ll Kill You, my caregiver survival guide. It’s only in the proposal stage, but I think the book could resonate with a huge audience and I look forward to spending the coming months researching it. More to come!

“Mainly Jane” Lives!

  I know, I know. It’s been forever since I posted here. Forgive me. I kept meaning to, and this post is swiped from the newsletter to subscribers I mailed out recently so it’s sort of cheating, but life continued to get in the way of a real post. The big news is I’m moving. […]

Mother’s Day Is Coming Up and I Had Some Thoughts….

(Posted on A Mother’s Day Card for Daughters Without Mothers                         My mother and I on my wedding day If, like me, you’re in your 60s (give or take a decade), it hasn’t escaped you that our mothers are dropping like flies — or are about […]

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 […]

Moving Hiatus

I’m moving – as in right this minute – and will have to take some time off from the blog to deal with the joys (not!) of packing, moving and unpacking over the next week or so. Michael and I decided we were done with winter in CT and are making the switch to FL […]

On a Roll

The Yankees dropped the opener in this weekend’s series against the A’s, but they came roaring back in games 2 and 3. Game 2, especially, was a thrilling affair with Walker’s walk-off single in the 11th inning and all the drama that led up to it. (Chapman’s inning was especially nerve-wracking.) Today was more of […]


First, let me say that although we didn’t sweep the Red Sox and ended the series tied with them for first place, having briefly overtaken them on Wednesday night, the games in this series at Yankee Stadium were great games. I enjoyed each one, even though they weren’t blowouts (my favorite, when we win, of […]

They Weren’t Celebrating in Houston This Time

What a great road trip the Yankees had. First they took on the Angels – or, should I say, took down the Angels – and then came the Astros. I admit, I had my doubts about how they would do against the World Champs who have managed to beat them consistently, but wow. How about […]

Playing the Twins Is Such Fun

The Yankees do have a great record against Minnesota, but the four-game sweep was heaven, especially yesterday’s come-from-behind walk-off win courtesy of Gary Sanchez. Wow. Other than having to suffer through another mediocre and frustrating outing by Sonny Gray and some bullpen wobbles, the Yanks were stellar. I really hope their momentum will carry over […]

The Yanks Are Suddenly Looking Formidable…

They really are. The Toronto series ended well and the series with the Twins has been great fun so far (go, Miguel Angujar!), and I’m hoping the early doldrums are over and done with. But I keep forgetting to post this hilarious piece from The Washington Post that ran on Opening Day. It was sent […]
