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 […]

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 […]

Aborted End to Yanks-Royals

The finale in the four-game series was postponed, but there’s still lots to talk about regarding the past few days – primarily the starting pitching. Wow. It was great throughout. Pineda, Montgomery and Severino were spectacular with Severino going his deepest – into the eighth inning. Bravo to all. If the bullpen hadn’t blow Game […]

Tanaka Panic

The Yankees were able to salvage yesterday’s finale against the Rays at The Trop, thanks to starting pitching from CC, another save from Betances, great defense by Judge and nice offense from Didi and Gardner. But the other two games in the series were not the stuff of happy dances. The headline from the weekend […]

Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

The Yankees’ offensive might was on full display in Games 1 and 2 of the series against the Royals, with a combination of small ball, big ball and really big ball. I love the combination of power and speed, but what I really love is this team’s ability to take the extra base. Remember how […]

Derek Jeter and Everyone Else

The series against Houston wasn’t memorable. The Yankees lost all but one game. Tanaka’s start last night was disastrous, and Chapman is off to the DL. Having had a rotator cuff tear with tendinitis in my shoulder (both shoulders, actually), I don’t expect to see our closer any time soon. Which leaves those duties to […]

It Was Fun While It Lasted

Not much to say except the Yankees’ winning streak was snapped last night against the Reds. I fully expected our resilient hitters to come back from the hole CC dug for them (it wasn’t that insurmountable), but maybe their fatigue caught up with them. I do wonder about CC though. Were his last couple of […]

Record Shattering!

Full disclosure: there was no way I was staying up to see the end of last night’s game at Wrigley. I hate ESPN games, as I’m sure the players do, and I went to bed before Chapman blew the save. I thought the Yankees had things under control. I thought we were bound for the […]
