Kristen Heimerl Talks About Her IRDA Winning Title “Inspector Dewey”

A real experience inspired me. I was crawling on the maple floor of my creaky, old home. It was 2:00 a.m., a bad guy was on the street outside, and I had left my lights on. I needed to call the police—without being witnessed.

How would you feel if your child told you she had a playmate who died years earlier in a fire? Do you think it’s possible to know who you’re going to marry from a simple handshake? If you could read the energy in a home, would it make it harder to buy your first house?

All About the Book  |  

Pamela Capone on “I Punched Myself in the Eye: Stories of self-sabotage, imperfection and perfect amazing grace”

I think it’s human nature to go through life on autopilot, watching for the flashing, Vegas marquis type of signs. But sometimes “wow!” comes in smaller wrapping, and then like a Jack-in-the-box, it pops out, and you the message.

John Branning on “Selfie-Facing: Analog Musings in a Digital World”

Sonny Hayes Talks about Gambling, Goons and “US vs. Welkner”

I used to gamble fairly regularly. I wasn’t in to the loan sharks, as the book’s protagonist is, but I was quite familiar with the bookies and their chrome revolvers and the giant pair of goons typically flanking them.
