Jeff Cohen You--yes, you--can make a difference. No, this is not about the Iowa caucuses or anything involved with this bizarre election cycle. I'm referring here to the near future... of television. And your chance to shape it. A tiny... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen A number of people have contacted me this week via email and social media to make sure that I'm not dead. Spoiler alert: I'm not dead. It seems that a man named Jeffrey H. Cohen passed away unexpectedly... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Still saddened and stunned by the news that Renee Paley-Bain passed away from a form of blood cancer last Friday night. She was a friend to me as she was to anyone she met in the crime fiction... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Let's say you meet someone at a... holiday party. He is introduced to you as Phillip, but when you say, "Nice to meet you, Phillip," (a time-honored way to remember a new acquaintance's name that has never worked... Continue reading
Jeff Cohen I got an email from a reader not long ago saying nice things about my books, which is always a treat. One of those things was--and I'm paraphrasing--that the reader picked up my book not knowing the author... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen I should just stop reading the Crime column in the New York Times Book Review. This week's, as always written by Marilyn Stasio, included a view of a book that features "the most original amateur sleuth I've come... Continue reading

Okay, here's the thing: I'm really bad at choosing among wonderful comments, it turns out. So everybody who commented (other than to say they already ordered GHOST IN THE WIND) wins! (I feel like Oprah: "You get a book! You... Continue reading
