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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dropping Like Flies

I was happy to get the series win over Toronto, even if yesterday’s finale took 10 innings to get there and there wasn’t much offense, but I’m worried about injuries going forward. It’s not good news that Chapman, our closer extraordinaire, has tendinitis in his knee. It’s not good news that Gleybar has I forget […]

Bombs Away in the Bronx!

What a finale last night against the Sox! After we were shellacked in Game 2 (Sonny Gray has to go, and Sale is truly the elite of the elite pitchers in baseball), the Yanks stormed back with a vengeance, knocked David Price around and wound up with a Janer worthy of my undying admiration. Not […]

A Reverse Sweep – Not Good!

After Andujar’s homer in today’s finale against the Rays and Stanton’s later on, I thought maybe it would set the tone, there would be offense and we would fend off the Rays to avoid being swept. Wrong. Into extra innings the Yankees stumbled, missing chance after chance to score more runs, even though the bullpen […]

Now That Was a Great Sweep

It’s one thing to beat teams you’re supposed to beat, but the Mariners came into the Bronx and presented stiff competition. So when Chapman threw the last pitch of today’s game and nailed down the sweep of Seattle, it was thrilling. It was thrilling to prevail in the tight games all series long. It was […]

Why Is Losing Such a Bummer?

The Yankees beat the Mets two out of three games at Citi Field this weekend. And yet it’s last night’s loss in the finale that bugs me. Well, it bugs me that the offense wasn’t exactly robust throughout the series, but it especially bugs me that we were shut out. Watching guys like Stanton and […]

All Rise

I’m back. Boxes are gone. So is the dreaded packing paper. And I can actually walk around my new place in FL without tripping over something. So….that means my head is clear for Yankees baseball, and last night’s contest against Toronto was a nail biter. Sonny Gray. Wow. Suddenly, he’s Cy Young? A shutout for […]
