Happy Thanksgiving!

Every Thanksgiving, I post WKRP’s legendary Turkey episode. This year, I thought I would change things up a bit. ADAMS FAMILY VALUES is an entertaining film, but Joan Cusack (The lovely Mrs Fester Adams) and Christina Ricci (Wednesday) are magical. Sharp-eyed fans might notice it features future NUMB3RS co-stars Peter MacNicol and David Krumholtz.

Stefanie Pintoff and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

Sometimes it’s the setting that inspires the story. My new book, CITY ON EDGE, begins when a child is kidnapped in the hours before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

I kept this idea in mind, even as the balloon inflation setting changed. It was once strictly a neighborhood affair, with residents in-the-know passing by to watch as Spider-Man and...
