 Few things can make a usually rational person want to run through the streets shouting or grab perfect strangers and tell them your news like the release of a new book. And that's exactly how I'm feeling at the moment— that breathless bubble in my throat that makes me want to jump up and down and, yes, run through the streets shouting.

   A Newly Crimsoned Reliquary, book 4 in my Monastery Murders series, has just seen the light of day. Okay, it's only the... Read More

On the Road with Jenny Milchman

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ May 18, 2014

The delightful Jenny Milchman and I have been online friends for nearly five years and have the joy of supporting each other through the ups and downs of the writing life.  I have twice been a guest on Jenny's "Made It Moment" blog and we have often moaned about the vat distance separating New York and Idaho. But Saturday night we finally got to meet in person.


 I was so privileged to be part of Jenny Milchman's 20,000 mile "World's Longest Book Tour."  Yes, that's twenty thousand... Read More

The Joy of Writing

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ April 28, 2014

I was recently asked to be part of a mini blog tour. Since the invitation came from Pen Wilcock who has long been one of my favorite writers— and her invitation came from Claire Dunn , another writer I greatly admire— I readily accepted.

Likewise, my invitations went out to two more of my favorite writers (okay— I have lots of favorites) Fay Sampson and Dolores Gordon-Smith . Who accepted with equal affability.

That got me to thinking about how lucky I am to be a writer. Not just because I get to tell the stories I love to share, but, even more importantly, because I get to do it in company with such lovely people. The writing community may be unique in the support it gives to its members. There may be the odd limelight-grabber or back-stabber, but, if so, I’ve been fortunate enough not to encounter them. Perhaps in the heady heights of best-sellerdom, but not in... Read More
