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 […]

The “Three Blonde Mice” Dessert Can Be Yours

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 […]

Not What I Was Hoping for in Boston

The fading, struggling, scuffling – pick your adjective – Yankees lost the series at Fenway instead of grabbing the head-to-head opportunity to gain ground. Saturday night was a lift, edging out the Red Sox with a solid starting performance from CC just back from the DL, a Chapman-less pen made of a fired up D-Rob […]

How Sweep It Is!

A four-game sweep against any team is a big deal at this critical time of the year, but a four-game Subway Series sweep is especially sweet. With the Red Sox having the night off, the Yanks are four games back with this weekend’s series at Fenway to come (weather permitting). Of note… Severino had a […]

What Can I Say?

I was never a fan of Chapman’s. He throws hard, but he seemed like trouble, and I much preferred having Andrew Miller back if that were possible. But here we are. Chapman is blowing saves. He’s not the same guy we had the first time around. Whether the problem was Joe Maddon, who rode Chapman […]

Pre-Red Sox Series Thought: Ugh.

So the Yankees got some pitchers at the trade deadline and now they can’t hit. Can. Not. Hit. Especially with runners on base. Plus there are those pesky errors that continue to rear their head. After watching the pitiful series in Toronto, I’m not looking forward to this weekend against the Sox. Or to the […]

A Series Split

After the miserable first two games in Cleveland, I was afraid we’d get swept by the World Series aspirant Indians. But – hoorah – we squeaked out the win on Saturday (thank you Headley for hitting that go-ahead homer and Chapman for notching the save despite making me sweat). Today’s game wasn’t a squeaker but […]

Silent Bats End Detroit Series with a Whimper

The rain delay only made last night’s finale more annoying. But primarily, the annoyance was the lack of offense from a team that knows how to hit. Witness Game 1 of the series when the Yankees had hit after hit in beating the Tigers. Game 2, however, was a precursor to last night – i.e. […]
