Did you think I had left the country, Dear Reader? It’s not good form to leave your website un-updated for five months, but there really has been a reason. More than one, in fact. Aside from the usual tedious trips to the hospital for tests and procedures with my beloved spouse, this site has been undergoing some renovation.

Old Nick and me.

Old Nick and me.


First of all I have added pages for the new Alafair Tucker Mystery, All Men Fear Me, which officially launches on November 3. My webmaster has added the  links for the new book on the left, but you can also get to the new pages  by either finding the link above under “Books” or “Reviews”, or clicking here, where you can read the first two chapters of All Men before it’s even available!

If you will lift your eyes to the bar at the top of the page, you will also see an entirely new section entitles “Recipes”. I have had so many readers ask me about the old fashioned, country recipes that I include in the back of each novel that I decided to do a regular food feature at least once a month, starting now. The first recipe is taken from All Men Fear Me, and is called War Cake. The second is a staple of country cooking, Buttermilk Biscuits, from The Old Buzzard Had It Coming. As time goes on, I hope to have all the recipes from the books on this site, as well as some that aren’t in the books!

In the meantime, All Men is about to launch, teetering on the edge of the diving board as it were. I’ll be appearing all around Arizona, starting October 28 and throughout November and December. You can check out my schedule any time by clicking on the Events link above, but for your convenience, and I hope for your future planning purposes, I’m posting right here and now the entire schedule as it now stands. As you see, I’ll often be appearing with other fabulous mystery authors, so mark your calendars and come out to see us!

    I’m working on Alafair number nine, Doris, which revolves around the influenza epidemic of 1918. Only three or four more Alafairs to go!
