What Is a Mystery?

Mar 18, 2013 in Guest Posts, Writing

Every once in awhile, when my (ahem) amazing job comes up in conversation, someone will ask me, if not: “What is a mystery?” outright, another question along similar lines. Could be someone curious how the category has evolved in the years since Sherlock Holmes, Inspector Dupin and Hercule Poirot. Or it could be an avid […]

Jun 19, 2012 in Books, Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors, Writing

This week we salute BLOODLINE by Mark Billingham as it hits bookstores in paperback.

The Story In My Head Has a Soundtrack

Apr 20, 2012 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors

I can’t carry a tune in a bucket, but I love music. Music is a constant companion—at work, at the gym, relaxing around the house, and especially when writing. Maybe it’s from all of the soundtracks at the movies setting the moods in a film, but for me music is an integral part of my […]

Hope You Guessed My Name

Apr 19, 2012 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors

When the folks at Mulholland Books asked me to write an article to introduce their anthology of mysteries titled VENGEANCE, I passed. It’s a subject I’m uniquely qualified to discuss, but I didn’t want to attract attention to myself. I cherish my anonymity, my ability to listen to the conversation beside me, or blend in […]

Mystery Writers of America Presents Vengeance: An Introduction

Apr 03, 2012 in Books, Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors, Writing

Editing this anthology was a lot of fun—not least because Mystery Writers of America’s invaluable and irreplaceable publications guy, Barry Zeman, did all the hard work. All I had to do was pick ten invitees. And write a story. And then later on read the ten winning stories chosen by MWA’s blind-submission process. Piece of […]

If you missed Part […]

Report from the Bookselling Front at The Mystery Bookstore Los Angeles

Sep 16, 2010 in Books, Booksellers, Guest Posts

Mulholland Drive is notorious in our town and around the world as a street of significant history—some of it quite shady, some of it fictional, some of it quite real. All of it makes for great crime (fiction). When we saw the name of the new Little, Brown imprint, we were intrigued. It was when […]

A Donkey in the Grand National

Aug 27, 2010 in Books

Congratulations must go to crime novelist Peter Temple who last month won the Miles Franklin Award, Australia’s oldest literary prize. But before we seal and send that particular “well done, mate” package, let’s just drop a sharply delivered head slap in there, too. Because as much as Mr. Temple obviously deserves his accolade, he’s also […]
