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 […]

A Couple of Days Late

In the good old days, I used to stand in the shower, with or without goggles, and soak myself with champagne – all in an effort to emulate the clubhouse celebrations when the Yankees would clinch a playoff spot. This year? I had too much going on to take the photo after the Yanks won […]

This Is Ridiculous!

Let me get this straight. Hicks is not coming back this season and most likely having TJ surgery. And now, after the Yankees swept yesterday’s doubleheader in Detroit, we learn that Encarnaion (oblique), Sanchez (groin – again) and Happ (bicep – he’s had it for weeks) were sent back to New York for tests? And […]

Men in Black

I wasn’t wild about the Players Weekend uniforms, although I would really have objected if I’d been a Dodgers fan and had to watch my team in all white; they looked like a cross between hospital orderlies and milkmen from the 1950s. But MLB has its weird traditions so black and white it was. The […]

Bad News in the Morning Makes Me Grumpy All Day

I really hate waking up, checking the Yankees score from the west coast game the night before, and discovering that they lost. I especially hate it when the Yankees play the A’s. Doesn’t it seem as if Oakland always gets hot toward the end of the season just in time for the playoffs? And doesn’t […]

How Sweep It Is

Any Yankees sweep is great, but a four-game sweep against the Red Sox at the Stadium? Extra special. I loved watching the barrage of offense against Price – what fun. There was nail biting as Happ seemed to lose it and the score tightened, but the Yanks prevailed and put even more distance between the […]

Bruised and Battered But Still Standing

What an awful week. Getting hammered by the big bats on the Twins was no picnic, and then came the trip to Fenway — a nightmare I’d like to forget. Salvaging the finale last night was nice (thank you, German, Didi, Gio, Romine, et al), but to have our starters used as punching bags, particularly […]
