The driving thing wasn’t bravery, Hank—it was cheapness. And I brought my portable GPS from home, so there were no worries. That was the least stressful part of the whole enterprise, other than talking to readers and booksellers. You, on the other hand, are on the Book Tour that Wouldn’t End, and I am in awe of your stamina!

As a man writing female characters, Lynne, I can tell you that having an editor who is a woman is an enormous help.

Jeff Cohen There's what I want to think, and what I think. They're not the same thing. Like many people, I have watched in morbid fascination over the past few weeks as allegations have multiplied against Bill Cosby. This past... Continue reading
