Mysterious Orientations

Blogger and book-lover Bruce Tierney offered up a truly lovely review of “Crashers” on his Web page, which you can reach by clicking here.

Thanks, Bruce!

Librarians checkin’ me out!

OK, this is nice!

Earlyword, a Web site to support librarians, put up a link to the USA Today story that listed my book as one of the hot summer reads for 2010. Gots to love me some librarians. Seriously. They were so supportive of my earlier books. Here’s the link. Cheers.


We found out yesterday that “Crashers” made USA Today’s list of “The Books of Summer!” This is huge. It appeared in the May 27 issue with a front-page banner that read, “Seeking a tome for your beach tote? A killer thriller? A title for the kids? Our preview, 6-8D.”

You can find the online version here.


Friends of Mystery, 7:30 p.m. tonight,  Terwilliger Plaza, 2545 S.W. Terwilliger Blvd. Best-seller Chelsea Cain will moderate. The panelists are me, Bill Cameron, Mike Lawson and Brian Thornton. This is going to be a blast.

OK, now I’m too cool to know myself

It’s a little risque, but I tried it anyway.

KNRK radio in Portland does a “Perfect Playlist,” in which they ask listeners to submit 5 songs. I did, and the DJ, Gustav (seriously, the dude’s got one name) played it yesterday! He even mentioned my cats (although Glamour is having some trauma about being second-billed….).

The playlist?

Viva la Vida — Coldplay

Wrong way – Sublime

The Pretender – Foo Fighters

Mary Jane’s Last Dance – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Hey, Pretty – Poe (the remake with her brother narrating)

The theme? All story-tellers.

How cool is that?
