Fiction reviewer Suan
Wilson to attend the 40th Annual Bouchercon World Mystery Convention. This yearly event is
for authors, publishers, readers, booksellers, librarians and anyone interested
in all the different types of mysteries. From sweet, cozy, funny tales to dark,

Fall is here; the colors are changing on the trees outside my office window,
the daylight hours are shorter, the nights and days are cooler and reading
choices abound this month.

Fresh Fiction is celebrating a big milestone this month! Five years ago
(September 2004) was the launch date of this entertaining, enlightening and
totally fun web site. It is unbelievable how much Fresh Fiction has grown and
evolved in five years. And it certainly lives up to its “Fresh” title as it
continues to be highly creative and up-to-date in all aspects of the publishing
industry. Here’s to another fabulous five years Read More...
The scorching hot days of June gave way to very mild and pleasant days in July
(what a switch!). Add to that regular rainfalls and my veggie garden is growing
by leaps and bounds. Instead of doing a lot of reading in July, I was busy
picking produce and then canning tomatoes, green beans and pickle relish, as
well as freezing a lot of sweet corn. Yes, I’m a country girl married to a Read More...
With temperatures so blazing hot in June, I kept my cool by staying inside with
good books (of course!). Some of my preferred reading included the third
amazing Dragonfire novel by Read More...
Since spring has finally settled down and the rains have let up, I’ve had less
time to read as I spend more time outdoors. However, I do have a few personal
reading suggestions to make this month.

Just when it seemed like spring had arrived, we got socked with a winter storm
blast the last weekend in March. At least I got in some quality reading time.
I just finished enjoying FLIPPING OUT (St. Martin’s Minotaur hardcover, 3/31/09), the
third installment in Marshall Karp’s police procedural/crime fiction Read More...
Please tell me Spring will finally decide to stay (soon!), instead of
Mother Nature teasing us with warm days and then snow. How’s a body to adjust
to such extremes? It’s no wonder that so many of us are ill. Daylight Savings
Time starts at 2 a.m. on March 8, 2009, and I am ready. Now, hurry up Spring!
I enjoyed some great personal reading in February; here are my recommendations:
It is with a sad heart that I tell you of the death December 28,
author Suzanne Simmons

The last month of 2008 was cold, icy, snowy and windy in my part of
Kansas. I spent a lot of time indoors reading (of course!) and have several
personal recommendations. I picked some great books and will tell you about
four of them.
BLUE SMOKE AND MURDER
(Wm. Morrow hardcover, 5/08) by Elizabeth Lowell Read More...
The holiday season is in full-swing and a new year will be here before we know
it. This year will be different for our family as we cope with my mom no longer
being with us. She was the keeper of past traditions, so now we must find ways
to fulfill those and make new ones for ourselves. As I’m writing this column,
there are big, fat snowflakes in the air. Of course Read More...
