The Many Faces of Keeper of the Light

In celebration of Keeper of the Light’s reissue, I thought I’d share some of its many covers, starting with (gulp) the original. This cover never made it to the bookstore because my agent and I both screamed so loudly when we saw it that the art department at HarperCollins cowered in fear. Keeper of the…

Keeper of the Light is Back

I know you’re not supposed to love some of your children more than others, but I can’t help it. Keeper of the Light has always been one of my favorites of my books. It was originally published in hardcover in 1992 and mass market paperback in 1993, then reissued about ten years ago in trade…

Beach Renourishment in my Backyard

Well, I brought my work-in-progress down to my Topsail Island condo for some quality revision time. I knew the Topsail Beach beach renourishment project was in full swing, but I didn’t realize I’d have a front row seat for the show!

Let's Perk Up the Private Relations Cover

Fire and Rain is now an e-book!

Fire and Rain is now available for your Kindle through Amazon or your Nook through Barnes and Noble, as well as in any other e-reading format through (though it’s probably not yet in the Apple Bookstore. That takes a little longer). As you can see, I nixed all the cover ideas I’d been considering in favor…

To E or not to E! That is the Question

I need your opinions, whether you read e-books or not. I have seven books that have long been out of print and I’ve now made four of them (Secret Lives, Reflection, Brass Ring and The Escape Artist) available as e-books. Very soon, I’ll have a fifth book up (Fire and Rain).  Now I’m trying to…

The View from the Top

I stumbled across the photo below on my computer and had to share. Like me, my older brother has a thing for lighthouses. Last winter (or the winter before?), he decided to climb one of the lighthouses in New Jersey. There were a couple of young guys hanging around the base of the lighthouse, and he wondered…
