I’m up live today talking about, what else? THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD of course! Its big release date is less than two weeks away and I’m thrilled with the amount of buzz it’s generating already. I guess it helps to pester people to interview us. 🙂
Seriously, though, everyone has been so generous with the interviews and guest blogs about our upcoming anthology. Not only with Ed and I but the other contributors as well. We’re everywhere!
So if you want to check out the latest interview about how we all collaborated, our editorial process, and why Pennsylvania was chosen for the setting, be sure to go on over to author Dana King’s blog, One Bite at a Time. And I guarantee, at the very least, you’ll appreciate the photos. I know I did.
In the words of Salt-N-Pepa, “Let’s talk about sex, baby.” Writing about sex that is.
With all of the talk going on right now about sexual harassment and abuse, Marietta Miles invited me and poet/photographer Susie Henry to talk about sex in crime fiction and whether or not it’s overused.
I grew up in the 80s so for me, it brings back fond memories. I talk about what I remember the most and what inspired me to write “Besties & Blow,” a story about a young SoCal woman on her quest to see Oingo Boingo at the Greek Theater. There’s plenty of bitchin’ music, back-stabbing, and blow.
Thank you to E. Michael Helms for inviting me and to MMO for having me!
I’m up today at the Writers’ Chateau with fellow writer, Lisette Brodey. She sprinkles in some unusual personal questions with the writer craft / process stuff which made for a fun interview. Thanks, Lisette!
Also, if you’re so inclined, there’s a fun post up today on S.W. Lauden’s blog where he re-posts a few of his favorite author quotes of 2016, including one from me!
I generally have two major loves in my life: books and writing. Wait – Hana strongly disagrees with me. She’s right, of course, she’s my number one love.
But aside from that, music is a close fourth, especially live music. And where else would you go for the best live music but New Orleans? It’s where I’ve seen some of the best live shows, and every time I go there, I find a new favorite music hot spot. Which is why fabulous mystery author Ellen Byron interviews me for her blog on my favorite music venues in NOLA.
It was so much fun last night to discuss all things noir with talented authors Michael Pool, Tom Pitts, Joe Clifford, Anonymous-9, Mike Monson, Rob Pierce, and Danny Gardner. Michael Pool was a fantastic host and many thanks to Pam Stack for organizing the event. If you missed it, don’t despair, you can still click on the link to hear all of us reading our stories and making fun of each other.
