What I've Been Reading: From the TBR Pile - March 4, 2012

A Lonely Death by Charles Todd I've been steadily working my way through the Inspector Ian Rutledge series, and I have to say that this might have been my favorite so far.  It's intriguing and fast paced, and several of the plot lines that have been running through almost the entire series reach critical turning points.  I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next.  However, newbies to the series should certainly start with an earlier entry, otherwise they will...

Book Updates - February - February 6, 2012

So, I know it’s been forever since I posted a blog. Mostly because I’m up against a deadline for Lady Darby Book 2 – my first major deadline since landing my publishing contract. I’m trying not to freak out about it, because, let’s just face it, that’s not pretty. Not to mention that it doesn’t help me actually get the thing written or edited. If anything, it slows me down. So, I’ve been working hard to maintain my equilibr...

What I'm Reading Now: The Duke Is Mine by Eloisa James - January 10, 2012

The Duke Is Mine by Eloisa James It's no secret that Eloisa James is one of my favorite authors.  I love how she weaves Shakespeare and literature into her plots, and with her most recent series she utilizes fairy tales.  First she tackled a retelling of Cinderella, and then Beauty and the Beast (with a hero who was distinctly House-like as the Beast).  With The Duke is Mine she utilizes "The Princess and the Pea", thus the many mattresses on the cover.  James surp...

Resolutions - January 2, 2012

2012 – a new year – and, personally, one I’m very excited about. Namely because The Anatomist’s Wife, Lady Darby Book 1, will be published in November. But, also, there’s just something about a new year that excites you with all its possibilities. Will this be the year when (fill in the blank) happens?  I don’t know about you, but every year I make resolutions. Sometimes they’re big and sometimes they’re small. I achi...

What I'm Reading Now: Vienna Waltz by Teresa Grant - December 22, 2011

Vienna Waltz by Teresa Grant I absolutely loved this novel by new-to-me author Teresa Grant (aka Tracy Grant).  Set in 1814 during the Congress of Vienna, where the leaders of Europe gather to decide the fate of the continent after Napoleon's abdication, it's awash with actual history, and the mysteries Ms. Grant manages to weave among the attendees, both real and imagined, are intriguing and realistic.  It's been quite some time since I was so riveted by a story.  Ms. ...

Happy Birthday, Miss Austen! - December 16, 2011

  Today is Jane Austen’s birthday. She was born on December 16, 1775, which makes her 236 years young. Or, at least, she would be if she were still alive. Sometimes I wish she really had been a vampire or werewolf, or one of the other immortal creatures that modern-day authors have ascribed to her in recent years for their own series. Think of all the wonderful books she would have written by now. She lived but 41 ½ short years, and yet she wrote six...

What I'm Reading Now: Coming Home For Christmas by Carla Kelly - December 15, 2011

Coming Home For Christmas by Carla Kelly  These three short stories featuring three generations of the same family and set during three military conflicts (the Napoleonic Wars, the Crimean War, and the Indian Wars) will warm your spirits this holiday season.  No one writes like Carla Kelly.  Her characters are warm, engaging, and real, and she truly makes history come alive.  So curl up by the Christmas tree, and enjoy this collection of her novellas.  They will be cert...

In which I'm in the mood to embarrass myself... - December 7, 2011

Or, why you should never mix up the words pus and puss… Somehow I injured my finger last night. I burnt it or bashed it or otherwise wounded it. It aches and is oozing pus from the side of my fingernail. I mentioned this on Twitter, embarrassingly misspelling "pus" as “puss,” which reminded me of an unfortunate incident from fifth grade.   I was a member of one of our school’s Odyssey of the Mind teams, a creative problem-solving competit...

It's Not Easy Being Green... - December 4, 2011

She's at in again, so I just had to repost this blog from December 2009... By and large, our tiger cat is very good, even at Christmas time when all of the shiny decorations must pose a mighty temptation. She doesn’t try to climb the Christmas tree, or chew the electric cords, or bat the ornaments. She ignores the ribbons and bows and stockings. But there’s something about the greenery that whets her appetite.  She chews on the lower branches of our tree an...

What I'm Reading Now: The Red Door by Charles Todd - November 29, 2011

The Red Door by Charles Todd I enjoyed this twelfth installment in the Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery series.  I stumbled upon the series earlier this year when I was doing research on WWI and have happily gobbled them up one by one.  There is one more to read before the fourteenth novel is released in early January.  The mysteries are always interesting, and Rutledge remains intriguing.  However, I have felt his personal development, as well as that of his personal life hav...
