Ten Things to know about Danielle Stewart:

1. I have a fear of whales. All whales. The noise they make. The sight of them (even on tv). I don’t think this phobia has a name and I’ve never met anyone else who feels this way. I blame it on the 3D movie when I was 7 at the Boston Museum of Science. (Thanks, Dad.)

2. When I get hungry it brings out the worst in me. My friends and family know to keep me well fed. They pack snacks now.

3. I can cook but not bake. Not even a little. Not even a box of brownies.

4. If there is a song I like it is normal to hear me listening to it a hundred times (give or take) in a row.

5. I do not, under any circumstances, read directions. Who has time for that? Making mac & cheese by the seat of my pants for the last 25 years.

6. Like a black-out drunk, I have lost hours of my life mysteriously to Pinterest. If you haven’t tried it yet… don’t. Save your self.

7. Before I became a mother, lots of things grossed me out. Now nothing does.

8. My favorite food is food… my least favorite food is no food. I love food. (apply the same rule to wine)

9. I do not have a green thumb. I have the kind of thumb that kills any type of plant ever given to me. Whatever kind of thumb that is… I have it.

10. Writing has changed my life. Not just the career it’s created but the way I feel when I write. If you have something you love to do I hope you get the opportunity to do it.

Rose Nichols’s husband Mark is shot to death while walking the dog one night. When Rose learns what’s happened, she’s shocked but not sad. Mark used to beat her so much that she started drinking as a coping mechanism for their fractured marriage.

Detectives Cooper and White are put on the case. Cooper believes Rose is behind her husband’s death, while White suspects it was the privileged assistant general manager at the health club Mark managed.

The deeper they get into the investigation, the more complex it becomes and the stranger Rose acts. Her erratic behavior makes her seem so guilty even White agrees she must be the perp. Unfortunately, no hard evidence points to her, only at the assistant GM. Cooper and White are at a loss—who killed Mark?

NOTE: A CRIMINAL MIND is a stand-alone murder mystery with no explicit sex and little violence. If you’re a fan of Rachel Abbott, Agatha Christie, and Toby Neal, you will likely enjoy it.

To our dear Mothers!

VERY nice idea from a sister blogger! Check out her project and get photos in to her THIS WEEK! 😉

TheGirlOnTheGo's Blog

Hi dear fellow bloggers and friends! Sharing a little thought with you all here. 🙂

I’m working on a video on the greatness of our dear mothers. And I have decided to use a little thing. The collage/slide show of mothers with their children. Interested bloggers/non bloggers can mail me their pictures with their mothers ( even childhood pictures will do) and I will add them on the video that I’ll upload on my youtube channel and here on my blog as well.

Also write your name on the picture!

We don’t particularly need Mother’s Day to celebrate her greatness, do we? Let’s try and make this happen!

My email id : sweetsymphony8@gmail.com

Ps: Ignore if you find this childish. These days, I’m acting a bit like a child. 😛

The Force is mesmerizing, a triumph. Think The Godfather, only with cops. It’s that good.”
— Stephen King

The acclaimed, award-winning, bestselling author of The Cartel—voted one of the Best Books of the Year by more than sixty publications, including the New York Times—makes his William Morrow debut with a cinematic epic as explosive, powerful, and unforgettable as Mystic River and The Wire.


Our ends know our beginnings, but the reverse isn’t true . . .

All Denny Malone wants is to be a good cop.

He is “the King of Manhattan North,” a, highly decorated NYPD detective sergeant and the real leader of “Da Force.” Malone and his crew are the smartest, the toughest, the quickest, the bravest, and the baddest, an elite special unit given unrestricted authority to wage war on gangs, drugs, and guns. Every day and every night for the eighteen years he’s spent on the Job, Malone has served on the front lines, witnessing the hurt, the dead, the victims, the perps. He’s done whatever it takes to serve and protect in a city built by ambition and corruption, where no one is clean—including Malone himself.

What only a few know is that Denny Malone is dirty: he and his partners have stolen millions of dollars in drugs and cash in the wake of the biggest heroin bust in the city’s history. Now Malone is caught in a trap and being squeezed by the Feds, and he must walk the thin line between betraying his brothers and partners, the Job, his family, and the woman he loves, trying to survive, body and soul, while the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all.

Based on years of research inside the NYPD, this is the great cop novel of our time and a book only Don Winslow could write: a haunting and heartbreaking story of greed and violence, inequality and race, crime and injustice, retribution and redemption that reveals the seemingly insurmountable tensions between the police and the diverse citizens they serve. A searing portrait of a city and a courageous, heroic, and deeply flawed man who stands at the edge of its abyss, The Force is a masterpiece of urban living full of shocking and surprising twists, leavened by flashes of dark humor, a morally complex and utterly riveting dissection of modern American society and the controversial issues confronting and dividing us today.

Don Winslow (b. 1953) is the New York Times bestselling author of thirteen crime and mystery novels as well as short stories and film screenplays. A Cool Breeze on the Underground, Winslow’s debut and the first novel in his popular Neal Carey series, was nominated for an Edgar Award. Before becoming a full-time writer, Winslow worked as a private detective in New York and California.


Happy Birthday, George Bernard Shaw

GB Shaw

George Bernard Shaw ( 26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright (who held both British and Irish citizenship), critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theater, culture, and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1903), Pygmalion (1913) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation. He was the first person to be awarded both a Nobel Prize and an Academy Award, receiving the 1925 Nobel Prize in Literature and sharing the 1938 Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for the film version of Pygmalion.

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”

“There are two tragedies in life. One is not to get your heart’s desire. The other is to get it.”

“Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not.”
