by Leigh Perry / Toni L.P. Kelner It was the hottest of times. It was the coldest of times. As I write this, Boston is just getting past a wicked hot spell, with temperatures well over the norm for this... Continue reading

Like many of the Femmes, and Femmes Emeritus, I spent this past weekend at Malice Domestic, which is THE convention for fans of traditional mysteries. Though I've gone to Malice twenty-seven times, every edition is different, and this year was... Continue reading

Mark: AAAAAAA! But actually Bright White for the trim. Ceiling White for the ceiling. Art: I was also amused by the competing brands. One had Rain Slicker yellow and one had Rain Coat yellow. Hank: I love that. I'd seen it ages ago but totally forgot about it. Perfect!

by Leigh Perry / Toni L.P. Kelner We at the Femmes talk a lot about creativity because we are, as you know, creative people and great admirers of creativity. In fact, until recently, I'd have been willing to say that... Continue reading

@Mark, there are planes, but not to fly around deadlines. Maybe next year...? @Kristopher, I'm pretty excited about meeting Scott Lynch myself. I will probably say something stupid, but hey, that's how I roll. @Catriona, Buffy is like mental bacon--makes everything better.

by Leigh Perry I recently finished the manuscript of The Skeleton Paints a Picture, and by recently, I mean at about 4:30 Sunday morning. No, I was not up that early--I'd been working all night. I'm not bragging about the... Continue reading

by Leigh Perry / Toni L.P. Kelner My last post for the year is a double treat, which I suppose is appropriate for someone writing under two names. My guests today are fellow New Englanders Liz Mugavero and Barbara Ross,... Continue reading

by Leigh Perry/Toni L.P. Kelner This post was originally written for Writerspace back in the Fall of 2013, and appeared around the time A Skeleton in the Family, the first Family Skeleton mystery, was released. I'm repeating it today because... Continue reading

And in case you were worried, we did indeed get our stove and it was installed. Turkey was accomplished! (And gravy!)
by Toni L.P. Kelner/Leigh Perry I love the Harry Potter books, and dip into them often when I need cheering up or distraction. (And I've needed a lot of cheering up and distraction this past week.) During dark times, I... Continue reading

by Charlaine Harris In spring and fall, authors circle the bookstores of America like—well, I don’t want to say like buzzards around a dead thing. That might imply that I think the conventional bookstore is moribund, and that’s far from... Continue reading
