Deb Kerry and The Flying Pigs

Monday, August 5, 2013

Here’s a question guaranteed to blow your mind apart: “What don’t I know?” I’m sure you see the problem with the question. In case you don’t, I’ll play Captain Obvious and point it out. If you knew what you don’t know, then you’d be well on the way to knowing it, and then you would know. So this question becomes like one of those particles that changes when you look…


Deb Kerry is Riding Off Into the Sunset. Take Two. Or Three.

Monday, July 29, 2013

I’ve heard a lot of authors say that writing endings is easy. When people say this, I have trouble liking them, even though some of them are my friends. For me, endings are hard. All endings – in writing and real life. Yes, I know there are new beginnings every time something ends. When summer ends you get the gorgeous colors of fall. And when all the leaves fall off…

Deb Kerry is Up a Tree with Katniss Everdeen

Monday, July 22, 2013

There’s a famous piece of writerly advice floating around the internet, which says, more or less: “Get your characters up a tree and throw rocks at them.” I can’t remember where it originated, although I think it might have been Stephen King. Wherever it came from, this bit of advice is all well and good for characters in a book, but what about those times when you start to feel…


Random Penguin Goes Ninja for Claws of the Cat

Monday, July 15, 2013

Back in January, Random Penguin paid a visit to Susan Spann’s house in California. He hung out with the fish in her aquarium and met her cat, Oobie. More importantly, he heard about her mystery novel, Claws of the Cat, and developed a serious case of hero worship for the main character, Hiro Hattori. “Perhaps I, too, could become a Ninja,” thought Random Penguin. “Though I could never be as smart or…


Happy Birthday Week to The Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane

Monday, July 8, 2013

I am honored to kick off launch week for Deb Kelly Harms and her delightful debut The Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane, releasing tomorrow, July 9. This is not a fantasy novel, and yet Kelly Harms has created magic. Not the magic of faery or wizards or the conjuring of spells, but the sort of magic we’re all familiar with. Have you ever made a wish on a falling…


For Deb Kerry, There Is No Home Improvement Needed

Monday, July 1, 2013

I’m supposed to write a post about home improvement. But you know what? It’s hot and sticky and I don’t own an air conditioner. What would improve my home at the moment would be a pool. Or maybe just a pitcher of margaritas. We don’t live fancy here. Deb Kelly’s soon-to-be-released (and totally fun and awesome) novel, The Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane, features a gorgeous house with this…


Deb Kerry Prefers Books to Movies – Most of the Time

Monday, June 24, 2013

In general, I’m more into books than movies. Not that I have anything against movies, you understand. I love my Star Wars films as much as the next gal (as long as we’re talking the original three). A good romantic comedy every now and then is good for my soul, and sometimes there is nothing like watching a good knock-down dra- out shoot ’em up-and-beat ’em senseless story on the…


Deb Kerry has a hard time playing favorites

Monday, June 10, 2013

My favorite book? That’s easy: I mean – seriously. Ask an author for their favorite book and what do you expect? Like any proud mother, I think my book baby is the most beautiful one in the world . it should be at the center of the universe and on every bookshelf… Ahem. Okay, so maybe not so much. When it comes to the idea of favorite books, I tend…


Deb Kerry is Diving In

Trust or fear. When you look at this picture is your initial reaction one of, “Dude! I totally want to do that?” Or do you shudder and snuggle closer into your armchair? I think we all have sort of a built in knee-jerk tendency to go one way or the other. Some of us proceed more cautiously through life, weighing every risk and always choosing on the side of greatest…
