If you’ve read many of my books, you might have noticed a certain theme that consistently appears in most of them. This thematic pattern wasn’t always intentional, but it’s one that I eventually embraced with gusto, and have decided to hang my brand upon for the most part. This theme, of course, is Death, though… Continue reading So, who exactly is this Death guy anyway? Or, a brief history of the Grim Reaper in myth and my fiction!
As most of you know, I'm an author of ten novels (a mixture of mystery, fantasy, and thriller...all with a dash of the paranormal).

Continuing our exploration into great mystery and crime fiction authors, I could think of no one I'd rather introduce you to than Simon Wood.

For anyone who has read my blog for any length of time, you know that I rarely do book reviews. Maybe one or two reviews since I started back in 2008. There's a pretty good reason for that. I read for enjoyment and not to critique something half to death. When I review, it's usually… Continue reading A Couple of Mystery Reviews
I don't use the word 'Legend' lightly, but my guest today easily falls into that category and he's probably one of the interviews I've been the most excited to share with you guys.
