Jeff Cohen Just as an aside: My first starred review from Publishers Weekly came out this week. They really seem to like The Question of the Unfamiliar Husband ("captivating"). So that's nice. But that was just an aside. This is... Continue reading
Jeff Cohen For reasons that defy explanation I spent some time going back over my own Facebook and Twitter posts last week. Don't worry; I haven't been hacked and nobody's suing me (as far as I know). But it did... Continue reading
Thanks.

Jeff Cohen Lately my mystery writing has become the focus of my professional life. This was not always the case. But since Josh has helped me become a (pretty much) full-time novelist my days have largely been shuffled toward writing.... Continue reading
Jeff Cohen This past February my family and I took part of a vacation at a theme park in Orlando Florida that for legal reasons does not have a mouse for its mascot. Let's just say that one of the... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen No doubt you will be hearing much this week about the coming departure of Jon Stewart from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, which would seem to be virtually impossible but is happening anyway. I've posted about Mr.... Continue reading

Hi, Stu. Best of luck to you and Mrs. Copperman (I get the occasional email addressed to Mrs. Copperman, which burns me because I didn't know E.J. was married) and your daughter.

Jeff Cohen At the moment--and even just typing this down I get nervous about it--things are going quite well. Josh has been doing his job remarkably well. Professionally, things are going better than I could have hoped for when I... Continue reading
I have no issue with the book being published. I’m just not going to read it. Ms. Lee gets tons of money, and I get to keep my version of Atticus Finch. Win-win.

Jeff Cohen I'm not going to read the "new" Harper Lee novel, "Go Set A Watchman," and it's not simply because I have no idea what that title means. For those who have been living in solitary confinement the last... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen In response to Terri's post last week, I thought it was just too much fun not to play along, so here are my answers (and we hope you're feeling much better very soon, Terri!). Your mileage may vary:... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen I must very respectfully--VERY respectfully--disagree with my colleague and friend Cynthia Chow. If you don't know what I'm talking about, scroll down and read Cindy's post from yesterday. I'll wait. Back now? Good. While there are many points... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen I have been "orphaned." At least that's the word people are using. Last week as part of the consolidation of two large publishing companies, in which employees considered "redundant" were being let go (a polite term for an... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Someday, I swear I'm going to do it. I'll read the bumper sticker, then I will get up next to that car, honk my horn, get the attention of the driver next to me and point to the... Continue reading
No, we were just stupid.
