September 2008 Blog Posts (8)


The last few days, my Grandma hasn't been doing so well. I've spoken to her a few times and haven't liked the way she sounded. Last night my father called to tell me she had been taken to the hospital. I had a hard time sleeping.

Grandma is my mom's mom and has always been a huge part of my life--lived two doors down from us when I was little. My sister and I were the first grandchildren of… Continue

In The Blink of an Eye!

I just got this brand new redesigned cover art for my 2002 thriller IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE. It's going to be reissued by my publisher, Kensington, in a special $4.99 edition this coming April with an excerpt from my new May thriller, DEAD BEFORE DARK, in the back. What do you think of the… Continue

Farewell My Lovely

I’ve had a lot of addresses. Not recently as we have lived in our house for almost 13 years, but before that. What always made me feel at home in each place? The Yankee game, especially those games at home at Yankee Stadium. I’d put on Channel 11, SportsChannel, or MSG, see the pinstripes and know that everything was as it was supposed to be.

I first went to Yankee Stadium forty years ago in May of 1968. I saw Mickey Mantle in his… Continue

The Inside Story

I have been trying to find a time to post my blog but it has been very difficult to follow Wendy's pieces. First the piece about our mothers and the blooms and then the September 11th remembrance. Very emotional, very moving for me to follow with my glib, light-hearted banter.

Now that enough time has gone by from those postings I can report the following: Wendy is still extremely busy with her next suspense previously named Dying Light. As you know, due to publisher considerations… Continue

Seven Years Later--Share your memories

Above: my boys and my nephews at the World Trade Center (Ground Zero) site last week.

On a weekday early in September, 2001, I brought my children to the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, a short train ride from our suburban home. Friends were in town from L.A., and the boys and I spent time with them walking around on the Upper West Side. The sun was out, the sky was blue, and the city on that day struck me as more… Continue

Full Bloom and Beautiful Boys

Mark and I have both written here about our personal tragedy: losing both our moms to breast cancer over the past 8 years–both just in their early to mid-sixties and both doting grandmas to our children. (And about losing his dear aunt to the same disease, when she was even younger) In both cases with our moms, death came to us, and to them, as a horrible shock–they had both beaten the disease,… Continue

The Inside Story...Oh No! Other Surprises

I see that Wendy has added a bunch of pictures to my list. Here is another few places that may not have as much natural beauty or well known history but kind of amazing to end up at.

1. Thurman Munson's Gravesite, Canton, Ohio

2. The Arctic Bar, Ketchikan, Alaska

3. The Pebble Beach Golf Course, 18th hole, Carmel, California

4. Havre, Montana: named for a fight between two men over a women which ended when one man said to the other "I don't want her,… Continue

The Inside Story...Oh no! Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know where you'll be

Like Forrest Gump says, life can be so full of surprises. In our case because of Wendy's travel schedule and the Fifty State Tour, we sometimes find ourselves in places that we never thought we'd be. Its always a surprise to us that we are actually there and we say jokingly in our family "Here we are in such and such." As our friends know, we always write that at the beginning of our postcards we send from our trips.

I think the first time we said that we were surpised to find ourselves in… Continue
