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

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 […]

Missed Opportunities at Fenway

Oh, what might have been this weekend in Boston. The Yanks had every opportunity to storm in after Judge’s triumphant Home Run Derby win, beat the Red Sox and re-assert themselves as leaders of the AL East. It could have happened. It should have happened. But noooooo. With the exception of the long fly ball […]

The Yankees Need This A-S Break. Badly.

Another dispiriting series loss, this time to the first-place Brewers over the weekend. I’m feeling worn down by the losing. Sure, there were bright spots. Clint Frazier provided a couple of big jolts to the offense, Severino pitched well and Judge continues to roll (30 homes = beast). Otherwise, we were manhandled by the Brewers, […]

Heartbreakers

Could there have been a more difficult loss than there was today in the finale against the Blue Jays? My heart broke in a million pieces as I watched the Yanks fight their way out of a 0-5 hole, thanks to Pineda’s ineffective start, only to have the strangely unreliable Betances blow another opportunity to […]

A Bummer Road Trip

The Astros are a great team, so I didn’t expect the Yankees to storm into Houston and sweep them. My spirits were buoyed though when we won Game 1 of the series. And then it all went to hell. Games 2 and 3 were heartbreakers in their own way, with Saturday featuring a meltdown of […]

Nightmare in Chicago

As more and more Yankees succumbed to injuries during the four-game series at Guaranteed Rate Field (is that the worst name for a stadium ever?), more and more prospects were called up to the majors. One of the latest, an outfielder named Dustin Fowler, crashed into the right field wall last night, destroyed his knee […]

It’s Infirmary Time Again

The injury bug has descended for real and it couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Yankees, who were already reeling from loss after loss (with one win wedged in there just to tease us). The long-time patients of the DL are CC, Ellsbury and Bird, but the latest arrival – and it […]
