Spring Lewis knew death. As a nurse in the ICU, she had experienced more than her fair share of it. The difference was, unlike most people, she was acutely aware not everyone who died stayed in the afterlife, including the eight kids calling to her from the river.

Best Books of 2013

Posted by Lisa L. on Sunday, January 19, 2014,

It's always hard to do a post on books I've enjoyed cause as you may know, I won't finish a book I'm not completely and totally into so basically, if I read it, I thought it was pretty awesome.  I don't suffer through books anymore--not even mediocre ones.  There's simply not enough time.  I read a lot of amazing books in 2013.  I discovered Dennis Lehane whose books spoke to my soul.  I read all of his Kenzie/Genarro series and cried when it was finished.  His books are like drugs.  All this...

So last weekend (October 4-7) I attended my very first writers' conference, The Anthony Boucher World Mystery Writers Convention or simply, Bouchercon.  It was held in Cleveland and open to both writers and readers of the mystery/suspense/thriller genre.

It was fabulous.

As most of you know, my best friend and writing soulmate is Nancy S. Thompson (whose amazing book, The Mistaken comes out on 10/18/12).  Her Bouchercon post is here and it's g...

Max—an elderly Paris bookstall owner—is abducted at gunpoint. His friend, Hugo Marston, head of secur...

Is it good or is it good? Or is it good?

Here's the deal with my reading habits.  You can visit my Goodreads profile and you'll see I've never rated a book lower than 3 stars.  (3 stars, by the way, means I liked it; it just didn't blow my mind).  Why?  Because if a book is that bad, I simply won't finish it.  And I refuse to rate a book I haven't actually read.  That seems wrong.

My time is precious.  I have a family and a full-time job.  I'm trying to do this writing thing which ...

Brick & Mortar

Not sure I'll ever get used to bookstores--real, physical bookstores--being referred to as "Brick & Mortar" stores. I have been a voracious reader since the age of 4. Growing up, every single week I'd take my allowance and go to our local bookstore, Encore Books (where I later worked in college) and buy as many books as my allowance could get me.

I am a lifelong book hoarder. Somewhere in sto...
