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!

A New Nonfiction Book Is in the Works!

Instead of the new novel I was planning to write, I’ve decided to plunge into a nonfiction project - sort of a companion piece to You’d Better Not Die or I’ll Kill You, my caregiver survival guide. It’s only in the proposal stage, but I think the book could resonate with a huge audience and I look forward to spending the coming months researching it. More to come!

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 […]

Someone Is Celebrating and It’s Not the Yankees

The Yankees tried to sweep the Red Sox and avoid letting them clinch the AL East on our soil, but they couldn’t manage a win in the finale. So be it. There were some positives to take away from this series. Severino pitched well – better than he has in ages. Happ continues to dominate […]

Only One Game!

That’s all that separates the Yankees from the Oakland A’s right now in the Wild Card race. Why? Because the Yankees dropped the last two games to the Twins – the Twins! – and nearly got no-hit in the process. This situation is making me very nervous. Oakland always has a way of getting hot […]

Who Is Masquerading as Severino and Bring Back the Real Guy

OK, this has gotten scary. Severino had another meltdown last night in Oakland as the Yankees dropped the series finale. Clearly, he is not the same pitcher who won all those games and was considered our ace. Is he hurt? Is it late-season fatigue? Is it mechanical? What’s scary is that it doesn’t matter what […]

Help is on the Way

I’m happy about this. As I commented to Leo yesterday, Judge isn’t coming back this season (my guess), and the Yankees knew it. So they acquired OF Andrew McCutchen from the Giants and while he isn’t 20 anymore, he’s still a three-time All Star with pop in his bat — and said to be one […]


It seems the Yankees have a new Shelley Duncan, a kid who came up to provide reinforcements late in the season and not only hits home runs but is built like a linebacker and exudes a joyfulness around his new teammates that’s infectious. Luke Voit was a pickup from the Cardinals, and now he’s made […]

And the Injuries Keep Coming

I haven’t posted in a while — under the weather combined with summer doldrums — but I was heartened by the sweep of Toronto and last night’s extra-inning win over the Marlins. What I’m troubled by is the multitude of injuries the Yankees are sustaining. I know it’s the time of year when players get […]
