Fay Sampson Reflects on a Journey Through Turkey: A Visit to Santa Claus's Tomb

By Fay Sampson ~ April 12, 2014

I have made no secret of the fact that places are very important to me. They were the inspiration for my very first books, and still inspire my stories.

I mostly write about real places, and love to visit them. Usually, I will have been there before and have felt something special there which makes me want to enshrine them in a book.

A Visit with Judy Alteró My Alter Ego

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ March 26, 2014

I am delighted to have Judy Alter as my guest today. I "met" Judy through a mystery Writers' listserve we both belong to and was fascinated to learn that in a creative sense, Judy and I have traded places. Judy grew up with an English father and now writes mysteries set in the American West. I grew up riding horses with my western father and write mysteries set in England.

Just as Judy mentions below, I have often wondered about the whys and wherefores of this and I hope, as Judy's friend says, bringing... Read More

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ March 19, 2014

My guest today is the ever-creative Adam Graham. Welcome, Adam.  Tell us about your new book Slime Incorporated.

Adam: Slime Incorporated is a detective novel set against the backdrop of the Idaho gubernatorial primary.
Hot shot Private Investigator Cole Ustick couldn’t care less about politics.

When the woman turns up dead, Hernandez is charged with her murder, and Ustick finds himself embroiled in the biggest political... Read More
