I'm happy to say Mysterious Press/Open Road will be publishing ebooks of my 12 novels, as well as a short story collection. My absence from ebook shelves is only temporary.
If you'd like to know more about the books -- previously in print from Bantam, Simon & Schuster, Ballantine, and Pocket/Pocket Star Books -- pull-down menus and buttons will take you to descriptions and reviews. You can read more about the short stories here.
My thanks to everyone who asked how fires in California affected me. I'm grateful firefighters kept nearby UC Santa Cruz safe, though the damage to and around Big Basin and mountain towns I love (and wrote about in Last Chants and Star Witness) is heartbreaking. But the last of the ash is finally off city streets here, and now that the fires closest to me are contained, our air is fresh again.
Unfortunately, other fires in California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia are still going strong, with new evacuations and a smoke plume that's reached Europe. Stay safe, everyone.
I'll be back soon with news.
P.S. The ebook anthology A Moment on the Edge: 100 Years of Crime Stories by Women, edited by Elizabeth George (hardcover 2002, ebook 2009), is temporarily only $2.99. It has stories by, among others (including me), Dorothy L. Sayers, Ngaio Marsh, Joyce Carol Oates, Ruth Rendell, Shirley Jackson, Marjorie Allingham, Sara Paretsky, Christianna Brand, Nadine Gordimer, Charlotte Armstrong, Minette Walters, Marcia Muller.
