Profile Information

Let me just say that I'm proud to be one of the chosen few "guinea pigs" for the testing of this site. I've been a fan of Wendy's since I defied common logic and judged a book solely by its cover. That book was ALL THE WAY HOME, with its gothic creepiness, and I've been hooked ever since. I've had the great fortune of getting to know Wendy over the years through in-person encounters and lots and lots of emails, and can say that she is a class act. (How she finds the time to do all the things she does I'll never know...) I look forward to being a part of this community!

I keep a LiveJournal that I've been told is pretty funny. And Wendy graciously agreed to be a guest-blogger back when I celebrated my 600th entry. Feel free to visit:

Hi Everybody!

Wendy was kind enough to (somehow) find the time to stop over at my book blog on for a two day discussion. Yesterday, she gave some behind-the-scenes dirt on DEAD BEFORE DARK.

She is also offering signed books--one lucky person who leaves a comment over at the book blog will be chosen for each of those two days to receive a a book.

My New Book Blog

Posted on February 21, 2009 at 11:58am 6 Comments

Hey Everyone,

I've just been "hired" to write a book blog for (Hartford, CT). I am now their books examiner. I launched my column on Tuesday and have written posts on the James Patterson formula, Visual Bookshelf, the Kindle 2, and Jodi Picoult's upcoming appearance in CT. Currently, that last one is the most popular on the site, which is really cool. While I will be doing a lot to promote local authors, booksellers, and events, I am also going to be posting book… Continue

Extra Copy Of "Witch Hunt"

Posted on January 25, 2009 at 2:55pm 1 Comment

In my manic search to find a copy of Wendy's early YA novel "Witch Hunt"-now a rarity-I ended up with two. The second is in less than glamorous shape-it could use a bit of cosmetic work (not to mention that the excerpt at the back of the book was torn out), but it's readable. If anybody wants it, I'd be more than happy to send it your way to enjoy. The first person to comment wins!

"Bachelor Boy" And His Women

Posted on May 29, 2008 at 1:44pm 7 Comments

After viewing my photos from the weekend, Wendy asked me to blog about my experience of being serenaded onstage by Gloria Estefan. Little did either of us know that the story would continue in Canada, where I came face-to-face with Gloria (again!) after the show...

The following are two excerpts from my LiveJournal.

Yesterday, I had the good fortune of being able to "upgrade" my seats for tonight's show from row N to row A in the orchestra. (As in front… Continue

John, I have been traveling through the members list looking for members who have actually posted blog entries. I am nearing the end and you are one of fewer than ten posters.

Congrats on being among those few

Sadly, the Mad Crapper is not a figment of my author imagination!! And I'll leave it at that. :-)

John and Chelsey, I'm thinking of you today! I hope that your wedding day and honeymoon are wonderful, and I can't wait to hear all about it!!!!

Well, when you write "domestic suspense," meat cleavers are more realistically and readily available than, say, sub-machine-guns. ;-)

I have lots more photos. That was just the highlight of the hundred or so I have. LOL. I think he actually needed the sunglasses from my friend Anna's flash on her camera!! Ha ha. Good times!

Hi John,
I added "Flutie" pics to my page. As you can see I had a smile that would not go away ALL night long. It was awesome. Enjoy!!
