    The other day, we stopped at a bookstore to look for birthday cards and books. Do you know what we saw displayed on the front doors? Beautiful green wreaths decorated with red bows. We both said, “It’s Christmas in July!” We try to write novels for folks who ‘want the very best’ and [...]

It happens every year about this time, so we’ve come to expect it. The NCIS’ seasonal finales have been ending with a “to be continued” cliffhanger, and it happened again tonight. Each year the finale scene is a dramatic explosion or gunfight and we have to wait until the autumn season premiere to see if [...]

Tonight, CBS televised their first of six episodes of ’48 Hours: NCIS where they will feature reviews of real NCIS cases.
