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

With some people already receiving their pre-ordered copies of my new novel, Three Blonde Mice, I’m counting down to the book’s actual publication day, August 2nd, and getting excited! And on August 6th at 2:30 ET, my book launch party will be underway at Arethusa al tavolo, one of the best farm-to-table restaurants not only […]

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 […]

Another Blurb for THREE BLONDE MICE!

I got a nice blurb for Three Blonde Mice over the weekend from one of my favorite authors, Eileen Goudge. Years ago – and it probably feels like another lifetime ago to her – she was world famous for writing the phenomenally successful Sweet Valley High series for teenagers. Then she moved into adult fiction with […]

Meh in Pittsburgh Except This

I could watch Aaron Judge hit tape measure homers all day long. Talk about bombs. The flip side of Saturday’s bomb against the Pirates that even elicited a tweet from Dave Winfield was yesterday’s strikeouts and the team’s overall offensive futility against Ivan Nova of all people. Part of me was glad to see Nova […]

A New Winning Streak Started Tonight

Last night’s loss to the White Sox was disappointing, especially after the Yankees mounted a challenge against old friend Dave Robertson in the ninth and especially after the seven previous wins in a row made it feel as if we’d never lose. But tonight was another notch in the win column, and, I hope, it […]

7 Game Winning Streak!

And another sweep, this time of the Cardinals. The starting pitching was great throughout the series. And the Baby Bombers, in particular, have been fun to watch. In tonight’s ESPN game, Judge kicked things off with what should have been a homer, but the umps refused to overturn the call. Then Bird connected with an […]

First Sweep of the Season!

And the “Babe Ruth” in last night’s game wasn’t Aaron Judge but Aaron Hicks with two homers against the Rays. Joining him in heroics was Luis Severino, who hadn’t won a game in forever, but had 11 Ks to dominate. And Chapman got another chance to be lights out. Well, not quite lights out – […]

Opening Day Was Nearly Perfecto!

Wow. Was I pleasantly surprised to read that Pineda had such a fabulous outing today. And what fun it must have been to watch him pitch a perfecto so deep into the game. Maybe the key was having Romine catch him? Or maybe he just liked the home atmosphere. Whatever the trick was, good for […]
