Obsession in Death by J.D. Robb

I have have read all the books in the In Death series and this installment is just as good as the others. Just when you think you have the killer pegged, the twist in the plot leads you into a whole new train of thought. 174 more words

I’m going to end my night with starting to read a book that I bought early last year. I just haven’t given myself the time to start reading it but I figured that tonight I’m going to give it shot and see what I think of it :) 11 more words

Still, why do writers have to go there? Come on, you guys, put your creative caps on and come up with something better--and less racist.

Remember When by Nora Roberts & J.D. Robb

Gone with the Pen Names

I don’t know why I thought I ever needed them. Maybe it was because I never thought very favorably of my given name. (I can still hear my mother screeching, “Tear-REEEEss-sah!” in her Eastern Pennsylvania accent.)  So even when I grew up and told everyone in no uncertain terms to call me “Terry” (no “i”, please), I still shied away from publishing with the name people called me. 285 more words
