A host of new books have already come out this year to inspire you on your next project. (Like many others, we've enjoyed reading Facebook...
They say that those who fight the hardest are those who are the most alike, so perhaps it shouldn't have surprised me that when it comes to parenting, the English and the French have quite a bit in common.
I see a service in bringing information about this subject to the thriller-reading public. We can learn about new discoveries and science in our thriller plots. But in this case of Dan Brown's scenario, why pin a global pandemic on a legitimate organization? Reality is scary enough.
Get ready to take the day off from work tomorrow because Hosseini's new novel, And the Mountains Echoed, is coming out and, believe me, once you start it, you're not going to want to do anything but read.

Coyne's book is a careful, detailed, academic answer to the real-world question surrounding U.S. reconstruction efforts: How is it possible that well-funded, expertly staffed and, at least rhetorically, well-intentioned humanitarian actions fail, often serially, as in Afghanistan?
We think her new book, In the Body of the World, is her best work yet. It chronicles her journey through metastatic stage IV cancer and her recognition of "illness as metaphor" for the cancers of greed, ignorance and violence that are consuming the world.
"Society" is a creation of the minds of those who inhabit it; it always has been and always will be. Thus, we have always been and will always be empowered to change society for the better.
I'm not talking here about the mechanics of writing, though craftsmanship is important. Like a clock, a novel has many moving parts--pace, momentum, tension, plot, characterization, story arc, character arcs--and they all need to work perfectly together.
Heather Ryan, former manager of 34 beauty pageant clients (some of Toddlers & Tiaras fame) came out with a tell-all book, Unleashing a Momster: A Peek Behind the Curtain at the Tragic Life of America's Most Successful Child Pageant Star. She accurately describes it as a "Labor of Loath."
The Resurrectionist started years ago when I was in Pietrasanta, Italy working as a sculptor.
True friendship requires a lot of hard work, not to mention trust and respect. Sometimes it's just easier to fall back on easy-to-spout doctrinal judgments rather than to invest in learning and understanding others.
Eleven Madison Park's new cookbook I Love New York highlights the best of what local food producers offer at their restaurant.
A thriller incorporating the work of the 14th century poet Dante Alighieri, 18th century philosopher Thomas Malthus and 21st century gene manipulation, the novel puts into perspective differences between Catholic and Jewish visions of hell, and the way our respective histories have shaped our contemporary circumstances.
After seeing many tantalizing mentions of Tara Books over the last few years, I was delighted to receive Joydeb Chitrakar and Gita Wolf's The Enduring Ark and get a firsthand look at one of their creations.
Book Review Jackie K Cooper THE OPHELIA CUT by John Lescroart Fans of John Lescroart look forward to each and every new book he writes,...
At the heart of every authentic call to ministry is the desire to live a life of integrity. It was my desire to live a life of integrity that led me to the priesthood and it is that same desire that has led me to where I am today.
The Element is where natural aptitude meets personal passion. An essential step in finding your Element is to understand your own aptitudes and what they really are.
On a sunny winter's afternoon, June 1954 in Christchurch New Zealand, two teenage girls, Juliet Hulme and Pauline Parker, accompanied by Pauline's mother, Honorah Parker, went for a walk in Victoria Park. There the girls put into action their plan to murder Honorah.
Everyone has a favorite book. I read The Best and the Brightest by David Halberstam over and over again, at least once a year. Sometimes, I will pick it up to touch and feel it, reading just a page or two, knowing by heart whole sections.
