REVIEW OF The Warehouse by Rob Hart

A funny thing happened while I was reading this book. I had just bought a new pair of my favorite shoes – Adidas shell toes, just like Run DMC wear – and on a whim, I thought to check the price on Amazon. I have the app on my phone, but I use it more as a reference tool than anything. But holy moly, those sweet kicks were $30.00 less on Amazon than they were in the store I had just bought them from. So, I bought them right from my phone, while standing in my living room. I didn’t have to go outside and drive to another store and talk to...

FIVE LEGAL THRILLERS YOU’LL LOVE—EVEN IF YOU DON’T LOVE LEGAL THRILLERS

When I was a little girl, I used to watch “The Perry Mason Show” with my stepfather, and I was not allowed to say a word until the commercials. My stepdad was a lawyer, and apparently wanted to hear every word. Even though I didn’t understand much of it, I fell in love with Perry, and his knowledge of the law, and how, (except for that once), he always won. I learned that sometimes the police accused the wrong person, and that people were innocent until proved guilty. I learned that the law had rules, and whoever used the rules...

Behind the Book: Naming a World

In my new double header Saviors I decided to start from scratch. As in, really scratch. Let’s build a city from nothing, a location that can be anything I want it to be, shaped to fit the stories rather than the other way around. Go back to day one, when the city was founded a thousand years ago, and then pick forward through history, marking all the changes such a place would make on the world around it. Small, sometimes curious, sometimes unexpected, differences that shape its culture. Among the clearest signs of a location’s history are...
