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 Medium.com) 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 […]

He’s Ours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I knew we’d sign him. I just knew it. And now I’m so happy I’m dancing in the streets. Is $324 million an insane amount of money? Check. Is nine years an eternity for a contract? Check. But it’s not my money and the Yankees save some by letting Didi go to the Phillies, plus […]

A Cruel, Cruel Way to End the Season

It  was past my bedtime, but there was no way I was going to sleep. The Yankees had just tied it up in the top of the ninth, thanks to the miraculous DJ LeMahieu. Then came Chapman, always a high-wire act. Did he have to challenge Altuve with a base open and a relatively weak […]

My Latest Video: It Worked Like a Charm Last Night!

Since it’s almost Halloween, this time my Yankees vid has a scary theme. I posted it on Facebook yesterday and the Yanks went on to beat Houston last night, so I’m posting it here. May it bring our boys more luck and us more joy. Be sure to watch after the “credits” for one last […]

AlDS Sweep: Check!

With the chatter about the “New Twins” and the “Bomb Squad” and all the other nicknames for the current Minnesota team with their impressive homers and young players (plus Nelson Cruz), I didn’t think history would repeat itself and the Yankees would dominate the ALDS. Clearly, I was wrong. The Yankees were stupendous in every […]

Nice Interview!

As a relatively new resident of St. Petersburg (FL), I’m learning not only about the great baseball culture here but also about my fellow local writers and their love for baseball. Here’s an interview that’s running in the latest issue of Creative Pinellas’s Arts Coast Journal, Pinellas County being home to St. Pete. October 1, […]
