Leave No Trace

Thriller

“Mejia’s thrilling tale works both as an engaging mystery and a haunting meditation on grief, abandonment, and the lost places within ourselves. Brutal, devastating, and utterly riveting.”
-Kirkus Reviews

Murder and Mayhem

Last weekend I went to my first Murder and Mayhem conference. If you were sober in Chicago on St. Patrick’s Day, this was absolutely the place to be. As a regular attendee of other writing conferences like Bouchercon and AWP, I’m always frustrated that I can’t be in five panels at once. There’s so much happening simultaneously that it’s impossible to absorb more than a fraction of the content, which is why I appreciated the single-track schedule of MMC. Six panels and a keynote conversation ran throughout the day with breaks for signings and lunch.

ModernWell 2018 Readers and Writers Literary Conference

Today I had the opportunity to participate in the Readers and Writers Conference at ModernWell, the Twin Cities' first women's coworking space. The afternoon featured three keynote speakers, two breakout sessions with multiple craft and motivational panels, and lots...

Review: Behind Her Eyes

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book has been listed in my "Currently Reading" bucket for six months because I couldn't decide how to review it. The twist ending lives up to the hype, to say the least. I finished it in the middle of...

Everything I Want To Be

I have a confession to make. The US title of my most recent book, EVERYTHING YOU WANT ME TO BE, might be more descriptive of me than it is of Hattie. Hattie Hoffman, our dangerous chameleon who becomes all things to all people, took on roles as it suited her whims...

Review: The Green Line

The Green Line by E.C. Diskin My rating: 5 of 5 stars A debut legal thriller that delivers. Abby Donovan is an associate at a prestigious law firm in Chicago working 80+ hour weeks on her quest to become partner, when she accidentally takes the Green Line train on her...

Review: Good as Gone

Good as Gone by Amy Gentry My rating: 5 of 5 stars In a word: wow. This tightly written psychological thriller would Not. Let. Me. Go. I sped through it in two days tops. Sleep? Overrated when you’ve got Amy Gentry’s novel on your e-reader. In the prologue,...

The Art of the Last Minute Gift (Hint: It’s a book.)

It’s the week before Christmas. Four shopping days left and if you’re anything like me, you’ve got a few hard-to-buy-for folks left on your list. Don’t worry! I’ve read some amazing new releases this year that will make perfect literary gifts. Let’s break them down by...

Review: The Vanishing Year

The Vanishing Year by Kate Moretti My rating: 5 of 5 stars Confession: I hated the first 80% of REBECCA. Who cared about Manderley? Why didn’t this irritatingly passive narrator even give herself a first name? Frankly, I was ready for Mrs. Danvers to torch the place...
