FEATURED AUTHOR: CHARLES SALZBERG


ABOUT THE BOOK When Henry Swann is asked by his quirky partner, Goldblatt, to find a missing psychic who's swindled his ex-wife out of a small fortune, he just can't say no.

While working his partner's case, he's approached by a former employer, attorney Paul Rudder, to track down a missing witness who might be able to provide an alibi for his client, Nicky Diam...

FEATURED AUTHOR: VANESSA WESTERMANN



ABOUT THE BOOK As a former bodyguard, it should be easy for Gary Fenris to kill, especially when the motive is revenge. But Gary has made two mistakes in his life. The first was letting the woman he loved die on his watch. The second was thinking vengeance could bring him peace. 
Local bookstore owner and amateur lock pick Kate Rowan loves nothing more than a good mystery. Her curiosity soon leads her down a trail of blackmail, obsession and death. Despite the risk – or maybe because of it – Gary finds himself drawn to Kate. When danger strikes, Gary is forced to face the fact that he used love as an excuse for murder.

Splendid Desolation (Part One of Four parts)


dontravis.com blog post #336 Courtesy of publicdomainpictures.net Thank you for putting up with my personal grief last week. Your indulgence helped me a great deal. This week, I’d like to get back to some fiction. The following is a short story in four parts, each installment a bit long for a post, but once again I ask you to stay with me. By the way, I return to the Eagle Bar on the Continental Divide for the first part of this story. You may recall that readers were introduced to the bear bar by BJ Vinson, the protagonist in my second book in the BJ Vinson mystery series, The Bisti Business. ***** SPLENDID ISOLATION I-40 West out of Albuquerque climbed to a bright blue sky for nine straigh...

FEATURED AUTHOR: R.G. BELSKY


ABOUT THE BOOK When the murder of a “nobody” triggers an avalanche. Every human life is supposed to be important. Everyone should matter. But that’s not the case in the cutthroat TV news-rating world where Clare Carlson works. Sex, money, and power sell. Only murder victims of the right social strata are considered worth covering. Not the murder of a “nobody.” So, when the battered body of a homeless woman named Dora Gayle is found on the streets of New York City, her murder barely gets a mention in the media. But Clare―a TV news director who still has a reporter’s instincts―decides to dig deeper into the seemingly meaningless death. She uncovers mysterious links between Gayle and a number o...

To Bobbi


dontravis.com blog post #335     Bobbi There were a lot page views and some comments on last week’s “Wally and Me” posting. Some people liked it while others felt it was a downer. Me? I just thought it was life. This week, I ask your leave to say goodbye to treasured real life friend. Without further ado, I’ll let the post speak for me. ***** TO BOBBI I met Bobbi ten years ago in a writing class at the Bear Canyon Center, the very class that I now co-host at the North Domingo Multigenerational Center. I walked into the classroom—open to anyone then as now—and took a vacant seat beside a tall blonde. She was busy talking to someone but soon introduced herself as Bobbi. What an inauspicious be...

When established house flippers Jazzi Zanders and her cousin Jerod donate a week’s worth of remodeling work to Jazzi’s sister Olivia, they’re expecting nothing more than back-breaking roofing work and cold beers at the end of each long, hot day.
