Happy Solstice, everyone! In celebration of this most balanced and auspicious day, I thought I’d share a sneak peek of “The City of Shadows,” book 3 in the Giaco & Luca series. Between returning to teaching after my medical leave, and working on stuff related to my other pen name, I’ve been much slower than […]Read more "Get a Sneak Peek of “The City of Shadows”!

Hi Everyone! I’ve been busy–and exhausted and sore–from the beginning of the semester and returning to teaching, so I don’t have a lot of news to share right now. So I thought I’d do another reading roundup. A number of you wrote back to me the last time I asked for reading recommendations, and now […]Read more "What Are We All Reading?"
Greetings from the swamp! Or at least that’s what it’s felt like this past week. It’s been in the 90s with massive thunderstorms every day this week until today. Now a cool, fall-like rain is coming down. Neither state has been doing much for my health. The damp has been turning everything into even more […]Read more "Turning Dreams into Reality (Or at Least Books)"

Goodness! Is it another weekend already? It is! And the leaves are finally starting to turn here in North Carolina, and it might get down below freezing. Not that fall is late or anything. I mean, it’s only November. The world isn’t getting out of balance, is it? Okay, so maybe it is. Scratch that: […]Read more "Two Women are Not Enough: A World Out of Balance"
Footballers: Featuring Ultimate Lacrosse (Tales of Gentalia Book 13) CB Archer “Footballers: Featuring Ultimate Lacrosse” is, and I mean this in the nicest possible way, one of the silliest things I’ve read all year. The only thing that even comes close to it for silliness are the other stories in the same series. Seriously. They’re […]Read more "“Footballers: Featuring Ultimate Lacrosse: The Mistress’s Tale” by CB Archer"
The Wings to Fly Lisa Marie Gabriel Of all the romantic icons of the early 20th century, pioneering aviatrixes (aviatrices??) are some of the most romantic, at least in my opinion. So that, combined with my interest in reading a broad sampling of the war-related writing that’s currently being putting out, meant I had to […]Read more "“The Wings to Fly” by Lisa Marie Gabriel"
The Bathwater Conspiracy Janet Kellough It may not be entirely clear from the title, but “The Bathwater Conspiracy” is a detective novel with a difference. Detective Mac Carson has been assigned to investigate the shockingly brutal murder of Alfi Longwell, a grad student at the local university. Which is odd, since Mac is not normally […]Read more "“The Bathwater Conspiracy” by Janet Kellough"
Keytar Heroine: Trip Hazard’s Tale CB Archer For those of us who have been deep in the Gentaliaverse for a while now, the lads of Caution Step are one of the more intriguing and mysterious side characters. They keep coming (up), but we don’t really get to know them as anything other than rock gods […]Read more "“Keytar Heroine” by CB Archer"
Desires of the Deep CB Archer After the impossibly crazy “Annals of Gentalia,” where could the intrepid CB Archer go next, some of us wondered. To school, obviously. “Desires of the Deep” leaves behind the gaming world of Gentalia, turning instead to an all-species college that has recently started admitting humans. Cliff Waters, human, has […]Read more "“Desires of the Deep” by CB Archer"
