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 […]

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 […]

Soooo Frustrating!

Yes, we won the series against the Orioles. Yes, Didi was an absolute stud. Yes, Judge hit more homers. But we lost yesterday’s finale and the Red Sox lost their game to the Rays, so guess what? We’re still 3 1/2 games back! It’s enough to make a person crazy. When will we ever gain […]

Stuck in a Ditch

Are the Yankees ever going to push the Red Sox out of the division lead? We win, we lose, we win, we lose. We won the series against the Rays with today’s “W,” but no matter what we do, we’re still 3 1/2 games back in the standings. It’s frustrating! The good news is we’ve […]

A Series Win and a Huge Yankees Loss

Taking two of three against the O’s was great, and we could/should have won the middle game too if not for Betances’s blown save. I hope the Yankees will carry the momentum into the Texas series. They seem stuck at the 3 1/2 games back of Boston mark, and I’d like to see them finally […]

Welcome Back, Matt Holliday!

Just having a little fun with the name, but did the Yankees ever miss the bat of Matt Holliday. He came back not a moment too soon – contributing mightily to the crucial series win over the Red Sox. Now we have a true DH or even a first baseman, if necessary. Chase Headley’s hot […]

This Says It All

The Yankees’ True Outlook: Fair to Middling By TYLER KEPNER AUG. 30, 2017 Photo: Bill Kostroun/Associated Press The race for the second American League wild-card berth has been a slog of the mediocre. Teams get hot, then fade, but never really fade away. At the start of play on Wednesday, six teams clustered on the edge of […]

Thanks, Mariners

Five errors in the first inning? Not good, Seattle, but I’m not complaining. The Yankees can and should take advantage of all the help they can get right now. They made a couple of errors too, but they weren’t as costly. Anyway, the Yankees – funny uniforms and nicknames and all – took the series […]
