Have you ever been on a blind date? Or better yet, have you ever signed up on
one of those online dating sites? It’s nerve-wracking wondering who is going to
show up to meet you. What if he’s a complete nasally voiced nerd? Or scary? Or
drop-dead gorgeous? Would you feel like you’ve hit the jackpot? Or would you
think, this guy is way out of my element, beyond my Read More...
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

the table. With no story to escape into, I resorted to reading food labels. If

I’m never sure how I feel about the changing of the seasons. Where I grew up, in
the tropics, we had the rainy seasons (traditionally March and October),
hurricane season (July to October) and then a very brief cooler period around
the end of December. That was it. Now, living in Canada, I find myself
alternately looking forward to the next season and rueing the passage of the one

The title alone should tell you that Book #2 in the Italian Kitchen
Mysteries, THE WEDDING
SOUP MURDER, features a wedding. And that um, other thing that tends to be
front and center in cozy mysteries. (Oh, but there’s also soup—did I mention the

kill off Read More...

You’re sitting in a coffee shop, trying to write, when a man walks in alone. He
orders a simple cup of Joe and takes a seat at a bistro table, his back to the
wall, and pulls out an impossibly thin computer. He’s absorbed in his work, only
occasionally taking his eyes off the screen long enough to sweep the coffee
shop, looking for . . . what?
So much for getting any work done, right Read More...
1. It’s been more than a decade since you’ve published your last novel.
it like to get back in the game with TREASURE COAST?
I have to say it’s been exhilarating, maybe because it was so unexpected. A year
ago at about this time I went to my mailbox and discovered a package containing
an autographed copy of Read More...
“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 my novel, HOW SWEET THE SOUND.
I laughed as Read More...

1. Get your Ship Together. Make sure that you know the
difference between a barque, a barquentine and a brigantine; a sloop, a schooner

I'll see that question, and raise it another: why not?

algebra, geometry, and trigonometry the rest of us ignored in high school—and
there's nothing sexier than a big, ahem, brain. We also know they're creative Read More...
