New Book News!

My new novel, Three Blonde Mice, the sequel to Princess Charming, is now set for August 2nd release 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. I’ll post much more about Three Blonde Mice, which is now available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your 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!


Join New York Times bestselling author Jane Heller on Saturday, August 6th at 2:30 p.m. at Arethusa al tavolo in Bantam, CT to celebrate the publication of her new novel, Three Blonde Mice, and sample a very special dessert! Learn more.

Six More Backlist Novels Get a Facelift!

Diversion Books, which is publishing my new novel, Three Blonde Mice, in August and reissued five of my previous novels last month with covers that are colorful and fun and have a freshness to them, reissued six more of my books yesterday. I really like that there’s an overall “look” to the novels now. Take […]


Another Great Blurb for THREE BLONDE MICE!

As the August 2nd pub date approaches for my new novel, it’s very exciting to have early praise from my fellow authors. I don’t consider myself a mystery writer in the true sense of the term, but I do have a whodunit in Three Blonde Mice as well as in some of my other novels. […]


Three Terrific Blurbs for THREE BLONDE MICE!

As the August pub date approaches for my new novel, we’re beginning to get words of praise from other authors – to me, the ultimate compliment. Not that I don’t love a good review, but hearing from one’s peers, writers who’ve been through the wars with their blank pages and know how tough a job […]



Yup, we have a cover for my new novel, which Diversion Books will publish in August. Why the heart of carrots? Because my “three blonde mice” heroines, Elaine, Jackie and Pat, have taken a farm-to-table vacation together in this sequel to Princess Charming, the book that sent them on a seven-day Caribbean cruise. This time […]


Not the Oscars but Almost

That’s Brie Larson during her moving acceptance speech for Best Actress for “Room” at yesterday’s Film Independent Spirit Awards. I was sitting close enough to snap the pic. After years of couch-potato-watching the show, which takes place the day before the Oscars in a huge tent on the beach in Santa Monica, I was invited […]


Sleepless in Santa Barbara

As my two-month stay in Santa Barbara winds down, I’m making the most of my time here, juggling work with play and some politics too. Yesterday morning, I was emailing the art director at Diversion Books about the exciting cover concept they sent me for my August novel, Three Blonde Mice, and by late afternoon […]

The Bats Were Made of Foam Again

What a shame to waste a good start by CC this afternoon to close out the series with the Blue Jays and lose the game and the series. Winning was nice while it lasted. I feel good about the pitching for the most part, but the hitting has been so streaky. And what are we […]


A Sweep – For Our Side!

It’s been a long time since I posted the laughing lady, but it seemed appropriate after the Yankees finished off the A’s with a four-game sweep. I wish we could play at the Oakland Coliseum everyday. Just about everybody contributed to the four wins, even Teixeira, who finally looked like he wasn’t toast. Ditto: CC. […]


So Evo Is Now Our Ace, It Seems

He was the only starter who got us a win in Arizona. He’s been the only starter to give us a decent shot of winning, period. He’s….Evo. Which sounds like a cartoon character but is the the nickname of the Yankees best pitcher out of the rotation right now. Knock me over with a feather. […]


400 Homers Is a Big Deal

Carlos Beltran has joined the 400 club and an elite one it is. I don’t know how much gas he’ll have in the tank as the season progresses, but for now he’s delivered power when we’ve needed it and made a case for himself as a Hall of Famer. He’s also supposed to be a […]


Our Excellent Legends Adventure

Thanks to Michael’s sister, Lawson Forester, we sat in Yankee Stadium’s best, cushiest, and priciest seats in the house last night. (The wide angle lens on the iPhone isn’t exactly flattering, but I took the selfie anyway.) Positioned perfectly just to the third base side of home plate, we could see every aspect of the […]


Why Even Pitch to Ortiz?

I’ve never understood the Yankees’ strategy against David Ortiz, who hits homers at Yankee Stadium the way I hit this computer to write about it, which is to say: a lot. Last night’s two homers in the series finale against Boston was a case in point. Severino, who hasn’t exactly been Cy Young this year […]
