Blaire Edens | From Mayonnaise Labels to Fantastic Fiction

My name is Blaire and I’m a bookaholic. I will read anything. Romance, science fiction, magazines. Anything. Everything. As a child, the only time I didn’t have a book in my hand was at meal time. I had a mother who believed in three squares and meaningful conversation so I was prohibited from bringing my […]

Louise Reynolds | Keeping Up Appearances

Rosie Genova | Who Doesn’t Love a Wedding?

The title alone should tell you that Book #2 in the Italian Kitchen Mysteries, THE WEDDING SOUP MURDER, features a wedding.

Amy K. Sorrells | When Fiction Turns to Reality

“What was wrong with that man? Why didn’t he do something?” The women around the table raised their hands and slapped the table with disgust as they complained about the man named Vaughn Harlan. Who could blame them? He was, after all, an enabler of the behavior which resulted in the unexpected, violent start to […]

Kate Canterbary | Architects Do It Right

In chatting with friends and beta readers about The Walsh Series, I hear one question with tremendous frequency: why architects? I’ll see that question, and raise it another: why not? We all know architects are smart—they’re the ones actually using all that algebra, geometry, and trigonometry the rest of us ignored in high school—and there’s […]
