Writing Team That Makes up Sara Driscoll talks Pet...

LONE WOLF is created by Sara Driscoll, the author pseudonym of the writing team of Jen J. Danna and Ann Vanderlaan. As a team, we were asked to talk about our pets, past and current.   Jen: The dog in LONE WOLF is based heavily on Shady, the black lab my family owned all through my childhood and teenaged years. But I haven’t owned a dog since then because of my children’s allergies. For years, we were unable to have pets; then we were able to own a sequence of very social, hypoallergenic hamsters. Still, this is not the same as owning a companion animal. But our lives changed the day my youngest daughter started to volunteer at the...

Where I Work By Suzanne Chazin

I started writing my first novel on a Dell desktop in the basement of a rented house with a baby monitor beside me and the washing machine thumping in the background. Through the years, I’ve moved computers and homes, but kept the same routine. Ikea desk unit.

Some of you will pick up this book with preconceived notions. I did. That changed fast and it will for you readers as well. I digress; let me go back to the beginning. Frank DiMatteo was born into a world of mafia hitmen in 1950s South Brooklyn. There is no other way to put it. The Mafia was at its peak during that time. His father, Ricky...

CHIN: The Life and Crimes of Mafia Boss Vincent Gi...

CHIN-THE LIFE AND CRIME OF MAFIA BOSS VINCENT GIGANTE Larry McShane 5/31/16 Kensington Publishing  You all have heard that quote about the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist right? Maybe he just hid in plain sight. Maybe he made it so you thought nothing of him or were forced to look away in repulsion. Maybe he put up such a front that you would think the last person that this could ever be was the Devil. Or made himself look so absurd and totally crazy that you never in a million years would take him serious. There is ALWAYS a method to the madness. The expression crazy like a fox exists for...
