Author Katherine Winfield on the Influence of the Eastern Shore in Paranormal Mystery Series

in Fiction by

When my husband suggested, 25 years ago, that we move to the Eastern Shore of Maryland from the DC suburbs where I’d grown up, I must admit, I was reluctant. I had a list of reasons why I didn’t want to move: it was too far to commute, I didn’t know anyone, there was nothing to do across the Chesapeake Bay bridge. To me the Eastern Shore was a pass-through on the way to the beach in Ocean City. But it didn’t take long once I was there to discover how wrong I was. The mystique of the vast network of creeks and rivers that lead to the bay, the abundance of wildlife, the myriad of fascinating places to visit, but…

September’s Author Crush: No One Writes Paranormal Romance Like Nalini Singh

in Romance by

Nalini Singh is the kind of writer who needs no introduction. But since I love gushing about her, you’re getting one anyway. Because no one writes dark, paranormal romance quite like Singh. I first read a Singh novel around 10 years ago, when I picked up Slave to Sensation on a whim at a bookstore. Holy crap, I thought while reading it. This woman can write. Singh had a style I’d never seen before: a cross between traditional romance novels and the more complex urban-paranormals that were becoming popular at the time. Her voice was — and still is — quick but deep, heartfelt but sexy, and filled with complex heroes and heroines who make rational, human decisions. If you’re…

Susan Mallery, the Tolkien of romance, shines in Fool’s Gold worldbuilding

in Romance by

Fool’s Gold, California, was officially established in 1849. There’s a town festival every April called the Easter Egg Drop. If you’re looking for a drink, try the Fox and Hound, with 25 beers on tap. Or maybe step into Jo’s Bar, where every night is ladies’ night. No, I’m not actually describing a real town. Fool’s Gold is the brainchild of popular romance writer Susan Mallery, and she has created an entire world within this quaint small town. Visit her website and you can find maps, a complete history, a who’s who guide, and even ads for various businesses. This level of worldbuilding is something we usually only see in fantasy and paranormal novels. But there’s no denying the attention…

Horror with a smile for your next watching (and reading!) binge

in Fiction by

I’m kind of a horror wimp. If we’re ever watching a slasher film together, expect a lot of squealing, a lot of covering my eyes, and maybe some nail gouging during the particularly gory parts. This is why I like my horror served up with a healthy side of comedy—if I’m going to watch someone get chased by monsters, I might as well be laughing, too. Funny, campy horror has a long history on television: I still remember the plots to old episodes of The Munsters and The Addams Family I watched as kid. And even now there are some great shows out there that regularly mix their fake blood with a few jokes. So if you’re looking for the…
