It’s away!

SELENA’S REQUIEM has been sent to the publisher, and I received a confirmation e-mail yesterday. I’m using Aventine Press this time – I’ve heard a lot of good about them. It’s too soon for a potential release date but, hopefully, it should be out before the end of the year. In the meantime, if you have not yet read THE BLOOD WALTZ, it is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble’s website.

Any reviewers out there, let me know if you are interested in reviewing it once the reviews copies are available.

Cat Days of Summer


I just moved into an apartment with no air conditioning, during the hottest part of the worst summer since I moved to Pittsburgh. It’s hard to think or do anything – I feel like the Nazis with the melting heads at the end of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” I think Morticia has the right idea – hide under a bed and hope it goes away.

What do you get when you cross the worst of Alabama and Minnesota? – Pittsburgh.
