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!

Long Time, No Post

I keep forgetting about my poor “Mainly Jane” blog, not giving it nearly the same amount of attention that I’ve been giving my “She-Fan” Yankees blog. So it’s high time I posted here! After my move to Florida full-time in May, I was beset by some medical problems (I’m currently nursing a wounded leg), so […]

“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 […]

Ortiz and More

Before I get to the state of the Yankees, I need to send out healing thoughts to David Ortiz after he was shot in the abdominal area yesterday in the Dominican Republic. Apparently, he underwent a six-hour operation, but is now in stable condition. It’s always a shock when a member – especially such a […]

The Calm Before the Storm

After last night’s cruel and frustrating one-run loss to the Padres, the Yankees are only one game in front of the Rays for first place. I know. Given all the injuries and the fact that Boone is playing musical chairs with the lineup and the starting rotation, first place is a major accomplishment. But I […]

First Place and a Janer!

I take full credit for the weekend series win against the Rays at the Stadium. Why? Because when I went to see the two teams tee off at the Trop last Saturday night, the Yanks lost and I vowed to stop jinxing them. Even though this weekend’s series was televised on our local sports network […]

My Jinx at the Trop Continues, But We Won the Series

It was throwback Devil Rays tropical shirt giveaway night on Saturday for my return to Tropicana Field, and as I was handed one at the entrance I said to my husband, “I don’t think I’ll ever wear this.” The Yanks had won on Friday night behind a pretty good performance by German, but I approached […]

In My Backyard

After taking three of four games from the Mariners at the Stadium, the Yanks will begin a weekend series in St. Pete at the Trop. I’m always excited when they come here, even if this time I won’t recognize all the players (Urshela, Ottavino, Maybin, etc.). I’ll be at the game Saturday night so look […]

Now PAXTON is injured???????????????????

I didn’t watch the game last night, so I went online this morning and read about it. And what did I see? PAXTON. KNEE SORENESS. MRI TODAY. I’m apoplectic. He’s been our ace. The one thing we had was decent starting pitching, despite all the injuries to position players. And yeah, we beat the Twins […]
