STEPHEN BRAYTON, author of “Alpha,”started out on radio but found writing more to his liking. LORNA COLLINS gets more info in her interview.

Speaking of LORNA, she's the “spunky senior” highlighted this week over at 

“What's a nice woman like you. . . .” LESLEY DIEHL, author of “Dumpster Dying,” and about-to-be-released “Grilled, Chilled and Killed,” gets inspiration from hanging out in cowboy bars. Don't believe me? Check out her interview at  There's a book drawing as well. Yahoo! 

Is SUNNY FRAZIER, author of the Christy Bristol Astrology Mysteries, really talking about being a “plotter” or a “pantser” over at Buried Under Books, or something much, much more? 

At the Crimewriters blog, Sunny nabbed the headlines and explains why she has a foul opinion of  obscenity in novels for acquisitions.

DENNIS GRIFFIN (Vegas Vixen) interviewed MORGAN ST. JAMES (Who's Got the Money?) on True Crime blog radio. They discussed humor in mysteries.

JOHN LINDERMUTH, author of Pennsylvania mystery “Fallen From Grace,” and “Practice To Deceive” has an interview posted at

It may be the end of the world, but I'm going to celebrate it anyway tonight. Hope you all have a great Christmas!

Could it be that the Mayan calendar is like music and there's a "repeat" sign that no one caught? Wouldn't you just love to have a time machine so you could go back and ask, "Dude, so why'd you stop?"
