Harlan Coben: Up All Night (VIDEO)

Harlan Coben is no nonsense. He’ll sit down for an interview, give it his all, but he’s not the kind of guy to schmooze or waste time. An air of mystery surrounds him like an invisible cloak. Fangirls flirt with him at conferences, but you can always tell, though he might be flattered, they’re wasting […]

How My Husband Saved Christmas

On another website, I recently posted about Christmas miracles — the small ones that we often forget about.  I wished all my readers miracles big and small — little did I know I’d be the recipient of one myself.  😉 You see, by the time Christmas got around this year, I was pretty cranky.  No, […]

Presidents, Devils & Secret Sex Clubs (Video)

Local author, Allison Leotta, is a former federal sex crimes prosecutor.  That brings to mind a stereotypical image of a hardened woman, more male than female, tough enough to toe it with the big boys, and able to stomp down on the revulsion most of us would feel when confronted with the atrocities she had […]

Catriona McPherson: A Dandy Day for Murder

There is one word for Cariona McPherson: audacious — and I mean that in the very best of ways.  She is outspoken, funny, charismatic, and engaging.  Her extra short, neon blonde hair frames a contagious smile.  Her writing is witty and atmospheric — whether 1920’s  Scotland or modern day England.  But there is a shy, […]

Boston: Be Not Afraid

  Boston. The city’s name used to conjure up such happy images.  Following the 1776 patriotic trail as a child.  An extended weekend as teenager with my mother – buying craft stamps at Faneuil Hall that are still in the original plastic packaging, too precious in memory for me to ever use.  Strolling the cobbled […]
