Laura Lippman’s Latest by Deb Jennifer

The topic this week is What am I reading and why should you care? — at least I think it is.  Let me start by saying that I just finished Deb Tish’s TOWN HOUSE — but since it goes without saying that it’s an amazing book and you should run right out and buy a copy, I thought I’d write about another recent read: WHAT THE DEAD KNOW by Laura Lippman.  From…

My Mystery Seatmate by Deb Tish

By the time you’re reading this post, I’m probably headed to New York where I’ll meet Patry Francis, author of The Liar’s Diary for an almost-week of book-related antics. Tuesday night, 7 pm, May 29th, Patry and I have an event at Borders at Park Ave. and 57th that will be attended by at least one person–my therapist. She’s already informed me she’ll be late–a good therapist always manages a patient’s expectations….

Fly Girl by Deb Tish

Ever since 9/11, I’ve been especially uninterested in flying. It gave me great peace of mind to know I had no plans to go anywhere beyond a day’s drive or train ride. So when my LA publicist suggested launching Town House from out West, my knees went weak. I would have to board a plane. To ease back into flying, my husband and I made a quick trip to New York…

TOWN HOUSE DEBUT!!! by Deb Tish (via Blackberry!)

I’m writing this at my favorite time of day (dusk) driving through one of my favorite spots in the world – Orange County. I grew up here and cannot describe how joyous and, at the same time, peaceful I feel about being in California on the eve of my book launch. We,ve had a mini family reunion in the Hollywood Hills, complete with a coyote and a bee the size…

The Age of Sagittarius by Deb Tish

I have to confess. I’ve always been especially proud to be Sagittarius. When I was a child, I loved it because of the whole half-man/half-horse thing. It brought me that much closer to riding a horse and the fact that I had hooves for feet only made it more exciting. It proved my love for equines was more than just a whim. It was a birthright. The only thing that might have…

Shivering Pomeranians, Pen Names and Ari Gold

As I write this, my basement is filling up with water. Some sort of tempest swirled up from the bowels of the stratosphere and has, apparently tipped Toronto on its side so driving rain can attack the city from the left. It’s always best to attack from the left. Remember that. I should get off the computer. That’s the thunderstorm rule. Maybe so I don’t get hit by e-shrapnel if…
