Movie Review: JOHN WICK 3: PARABELLUM

It’s wonderful to sit in a full theater and hear people reacting to scenes with the same glee and awe that you do. This movie knows what it is: an action romp that gleefully strains reality and has some of the finest fight choreography and cinematography (Dan Laustsen (“The Shape of Water”) you’ll see. And Wick’s nemesis (beyond any soul rending existential doubt he may) is as cheesy as the bottle clinking bad guy in The Warriors. But much more deadly. Yes, there is a plot. And it is expanded upon and advanced. In JOHN WICK...

Behind the Book: Tony Lee Moral

How Alfred Hitchcock inspired THE HAUNTING OF ALICE MAY by Tony Lee Moral Alfred Hitchcock has been a huge influence on my life and work. I’ve written three non-fiction books about the Master of Suspense and he inspired my latest novel, THE HAUNTING OF ALICE MAY. Hitchcock had the greatest of all things, a story to tell. In finding ideas to adapt to film and television, he often turned to newspaper articles, short stories, plays and novels. Audiences knew that with a Hitchcock story they would have a good time, they may be frightened, or they...

She acted hungry but all we had on hand was dog food. I offered her a handful and she gobbled it up. The next day, my cat-hating husband brought home cat food. Kitty liked that even more....
