Summertime and the Living Is (Not) Easy!

posted by Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy We’ve reached the end of another GREAT month in the Lair and I’m thrilled to send July out with a BANG (or is that boom?) by welcoming my good friend and Lair favorite Marie Force back for a visit. The third book in Marie’s “Fatal” series, Fatal Consequences, was released this month, along with a lot of other stuff. But I’ll let Marie tell you all about it: Greetings to the Banditas! Thank you SO much to my dear friend Aunty Cindy and the gang for having me back again to celebrate the

CSI Launch in the Lair!

by Jo Robertson We’re not exactly having a Launch Party today. Do I hear groans and sighs of disappointment. The Banditas and their BB’s are always up for a raucous event. Never fear! We have the usual finger foods and goodies on hand. Sven’s been hard at work in the kitchen making canapes and those little barbecued sausages, as well as caviar and champagne. Unfortunately he’s not getting the usual “help” from Lars, who’s promised everyone a foot massage today. It’s probably just as well since Lars tends to drop things. The party preparations are on temporary halt, however, because

Just Call Me Auntie

by Susan Sey My summer has been frantic. All summers are frantic, I know. They’re billed as the height of relaxation–all hammocks & cool lemonades, campfires & fishing–and I seem to remember that experience from when I was a kid. But now that I’m a mom, I’m manufacturing summer rather than experiencing it & it’s a hell of a lot busier. This summer, for example, one of my kids got the theatre bug so next thing I know we’re committed to rehearsals from 6-9 p.m. four nights a week. And then there was Summer Academy for one kid. (It’s an

Super Celia Seaton!

by Anna Campbell Miranda Neville is such a favorite in the lair, she hardly needs any introduction – but she’ll punch me if I don’t say something and while she punches like a girl, it’s still not the best look for authors at their professional best (snork!). Miranda is an international explorer and conservationist who has been known to give Bear Grylls tips. She can whip up a three-course cordon bleu meal from two cans of baked beans, a bottle of Coke and an onion. When she’s not advising the CIA on their undercover missions or showing the Queen how

Techno-Freakia

by Nancy Last winter, the dh decided one of us had to “join the 21st century.” He didn’t want to be the one, so he gave me an iPad for Christmas. This was an odd gift, by the way, from a man who views any new form of technology with suspicion and once phoned me at work to ask how he could make his document’s pages have numbers. I was initially not sure what I would use it for. I have a laptop. I have a cellphone. I need this because . . . ? However, the iPad has grown
