I was, wait, sorry, that's "David Copperfield". Anyway, I was born in Brooklyn, grew up on Long Island, went to school in upstate NY and came straight back to Manhattan to live. Never lived anywhere else. Never wanted to. Got a job as a rock journalist, in the course of which I met and married a rock star (yeah, yeah, conflict of interest, who cares). Became a priestess in a Celtic Pagan tradition, and (based on sheer longevity) one of the most senior Witches around. Began writing my Keltiad series. Wrote a memoir of my time with my beloved consort (Strange Days: My Life With and Without Jim Morrison). See Favorite Books below for a big announcement...The Rennie Stride Mysteries.

Book Report

Another lovely cool gray day, but the last, apparently: summer returns starting tomorrow, and I'm not happy. It's been sooooo nice with the a/c off and a blankie at night...

Anyway, I thought I'd update you lot on the progress of "Ungrateful Dead: Murder at the Fillmore." I'm going over it for the last time this week, before sending it to the awesome Bianquita, who is going to Lulu-ize it for me. She did the same service for her aunt MDF Mary's book "Figures of Echo", which is now published on Lulu and will be appearing as a Lifetime movie on September 8.

Good thing "Dead" is going, too, as I'm getting a bit bored with it and want to be moving on to the next one, which still requires substantial actual writing. Which is always fun. Except when it's not.

And the cover art is inching toward perfection as well, so I'm hoping to meet the self-imposed deadline and see the thing materialize on November 1. Or thereabouts. Any time up to the 11 would be okay by me.

I'll put up a whole chapter soon, hopefully one that doesn't give away too much but that gets you interested. Then it's on to "California Screamin': Murder at Monterey Pop".

Rock on.
