Meet Mystery Novel Author Lynne Kennedy--Read About Her Books That Blend the Past & the Present


I started reading Lynne's historical mystery novels, and now I'm hooked. I read TIME EXPOSURE after I learned that it's set during the Civil War, and as a huge Civil War/Lincoln buff, I read every book I can get on the subject, and even wrote one! I purchased several of her other books, then just last week, noticed she'd written a mystery set around the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, THE TRIANGLE MURDERS. On March 25, I sent Lynne a message about this great find, and she mentioned that day was exactly 107 years since that horrible fire where 146 people perished.

Meet D.M. Burton and Read About her New Release RESCUING MARA'S FATHER, a Middle Grade Science Fiction Adventure


April and a Giveaway A note from D.M.: The beginning of April has always signaled Spring to me. It doesn’t matter what the calendar says. We could have snow on the ground, but when I turn the calendar page and see April, I know Spring has finally sprung. A bit of green pokes through the brown grass, the daffodils and tulips send their spears up through the cold ground. April also signaled Major League Baseball’s Opening Day. Not anymore. The season is starting in March now. But I still think about baseball as April arrives. One of my favorite reasons for living in the Midwest is the changing of seasons. Not every place on this planet has the distinct seasonal changes that we have. What about...

Meet Patricka Kiyono and Read About Her Regency Romance LOST IN LAVENDER


About Patricia, Confessions of a Non-Gardener When it comes to plants, I have what’s known as a black thumb. I can’t make anythinggrow, either indoors or outside. I’m also incapable of identifying anything other than the most basic species. So when Dingbat Publishing put out a call for a Christmas regency series called Christmas Bouquet, I was skeptical. All stories had to feature flowers somehow. What were the chances that I, lacking any knowledge of plants, could write a story fitting those guidelines. For inspiration, I channeled my memories of my paternal grandmother. Grandma lived with us while my brothers and I grew up, and I remember how she always had a garden full of colorful blooms...

Happy New Year, readers! Wishing you a year of marvelous books! A snippet from my biographical romance thriller FOR THE LOVE OF HAWTHORNE, on sale for Kindle at $0.57 this week: "I wondered when or if Nathaniel would ever finish THE SCARLET LETTER. He wrote so immensely I was almost frightened about it. But I knew his output depended on his long hours in the cold study, and this work also kept his grief at bay. I never disturbed him but for to deliver a plate of buttered bread with a glass of ale. I needed not ask how his writing fared. I could tell by the look in his eyes, how much he mumbled to himself, and whether he replied when I spoke to him. When I saw his shining look, I knew he'd pr...

Romantic Historical Thriller SHARING HAMILTON is Free for Kindle This Week


SHARING HAMILTON, my romantic thriller co-authored with popular British mystery novelist Brian Porter, is free for Kindle this week. Thanks, readers, for your stellar reviews.  5 out of 5 stars A really good read. Berk Rourke: Verified Purchase Being a history student by my initial education, and loving historical novels, this was a must read, never mind one of the co-authors, Brian L. Porter is one of my favorite authors. This tale, as one might expect with the description o f a clandestine affair, especially one with such an historical figure, was a bit slow moving.

THE END OF CAMELOT, My Historical Romance Set Around the Assassination of President Kennedy--55 Years Ago November 22


The End of Camelot by Diana Rubino November 22, 1963, a day that changed America forever. Who killed President Kennedy? I've been a HUGE JFK assassination buff since that very day. Everyone who was alive on November 22, 1963 knew exactly where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news. I was in my first grade classroom. The teacher got a call on the classroom phone and told us ‘the president was shot.’ A collective gasp went around the room. I was 6 years old and in first grade. It was ten years before I saw the footage of Ruby shooting Oswald, on an anniversary documentary.            But it was my grandmother who got me interested in the biggest mystery since 'who killed ...
