iRobot – A Love Story by Deb Kristy

  I am sure that those who know me think I came up with this topic, The Hairy Thing That Lurks Under My Bed, because I actually do have one (see above example: Niko Vom Kiernan), and I spend a large portion of my daily life cleaning up after it. My family has heard it. My friends are tired of listening to it. For the record, I didn’t invent this…

Book Review – Lipshitz Six, or Two Angry Blondes

Lipshitz Six, or Two Angry Blondes by T Cooper Reviewed by Debutante Kristy Disclaimer: Happily, I don’t have one. I don’t know T Cooper, have never met her, haven’t asked for a blurb from her, don’t know anyone who knows her. We don’t share an agent, an editor, or a gynecologist. As far as I know we are not related, nor does it appear that we might be in the…

Afraid of Spiders? by Deb Kristy

Spiders send me into paroxysms of joy. Or my first car, a 1980 Fiat Pininfarina Spider 2000 did anyway. I have no idea how I came to own the car. One day it appeared in the driveway and my mother told me that on the 5th of each month I’d need to pay some guy named Courtney $200.00.

Book Review – Oh My Stars

Oh My Stars by Lorna Landvik Reviewed by Kristy Kiernan  Disclaimer: I’ve met Ms. Landvik, and she’s been kind enough to say she would read CATCHING GENIUS. She is funny, and pretty, and sweet, and I swear I’m not just sucking up. Oh My Starsis a surprise. Always, in every chapter, this book is not what I thought it would be. (What did I think it would be? I thought…

Toes in the Sand by Deb Kristy

I’m sitting here on St. George, a tiny island off the coast of northwest Florida, feeling lethargic and yet sort of cute in my new pink bikini with a little skull and crossbones on the bum. There is nobody else on this beach except for my husband, who is dozing silently beside me, the smile on his face only slightly faded by sleep. The warm water of the Gulf of…

Book Review – All This Belongs To Me

All This Belongs To Me by Ad Hudler Reviewed by Debutante Kristy  Disclaimer: I know and like Ad Hudler. But I’m pretty sure he doesn’t spend much time online, so I feel confident that I could rip and shred and he’d never know. Thing is, it’s just not going to happen.   All This Belongs To Me is beautifully written, well-plotted, and has one of the most endearing protagonists–Ellis Norton,…

How’d I Get Here? by Debutante Kristy

Anna might have had it tough being the first Debutante to grace our pages with her brilliance, but surely I am to be pitied for having to follow FIVE brilliant introductions? I shall do my best. I am actually rather bewildered by the fact that I am blogging. Many things that I’m doing these days seem to bewilder me. I always wanted to write for a living, there was never…
