Hosted by Village Books

Kristin and I have a friendship reaching back thirty years (!) and I’m excited to interview her about her newest #1 New York Times release, FOUR WINDS. I hope you’ll sign up to attend!

“Through one woman’s survival during the harsh and haunting Dust Bowl, master storyteller, Kristin Hannah, reminds us that the human heart and our Earth are as tough, yet as fragile, as a change in the wind.” Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing

Order Kristin’s sprawling and emotional FOUR WINDS (“My land tells its story if you listen. The story of our family,”) and my own suspense thriller WRONG ALIBI (“In the Alaskan wilderness, the hunted can become the hunter…”) from Village Books.

WRONG ALIBI Fun for You!

This week on Facebook, Susan Elizabeth Phillips grilled me about my new release, WRONG ALIBI, and was so much fun…except because of technical difficulties, we were 10 minutes late. But that doesn’t matter for you — it’s recorded and you can watch it anytime you like! Susan is as humorous and compelling in person as her books are when you read them!

Thank God when, a few minutes later, we went to Instagram Live, and everything was perfect…almost. Again, an entertaining interview for you to enjoy!

Jayne Ann Krentz Confesses All

I recently interviewed New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick on Facebook about her Burning Cove series, and while we were live, I asked the tough questions:

— Who is Jayne Ann Krentz and why does she look so much like Amanda Quick? What about Jayne Castle? Is she another doppelganger?

— Book #1 in the Burning Cove series, THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, starts with a woman discovering a murder and a secret notebook with cryptic markings. She flees to California, becomes a reporter and discovers another murder in an exclusive hotel filled with Hollywood people. You introduce a man who was formerly a stage magician and who was hurt in an onstage accident, and his inventor uncle. You add a spoiled actor, a frightened assistant, a washed-up actor, a star-obsessed killer, a ruthless guy who cleans up messes for the studio… All in the first fifty pages. How do you come up with these plots?

— You recently confessed that the dust bunnies are rising once again. What more can you tell us?

We took questions from the audience and had a riotous good time. The recorded interview is 45 minutes, but you can pop in and out as you have time. Watch and enjoy!

What doesn’t kill her…had better start running.

Sleeping Beauty was such a sucker.

You can say stuff in her defense. She was young and unwary. She didn’t know much about wicked men and cruel women. No one warned her not to touch sharp objects. But ultimately, everything that happened: the whole kingdom taking a hundred year nap, her prince having to hack back thorns and fight a dragon, him having to run up a gazillion stairs, wheezing and gasping, to revive her with true love’s kiss — that was all her fault. Everything melts down around her and all she does is lie there, snoozing away.

As I said, a sucker.

Why am I bringing up corny, politically incorrect, completely unfeminist Sleeping Beauty?… WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER, Get your copy now!

Jayne Ann Krentz, Christina Dodd in Person!

The DEAD GIRL RUNNING booktour is over but never will it be forgotten. Pal Jayne Ann Krentz (Amanda Quick) and I flew to

Jayne Ann Kretnz obviously loves my DEAD GIRL RUNNING reading.

Chicago, Phoenix, and Houston to sign at some of the best mystery bookstores in the nation. What was that like? We filmed the autographing at Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale AZ.The filming was done by rank amateurs (us), but entertaining if you’d like to watch us talk about writing, reading, DEAD GIRL RUNNING and THE OTHER LADY VANISHES, and real life. We also give each other a tough time. There’s a lot of screaming laughter in the video, and man, do I wish I’d checked the angle of the filming. Good thing I have great legs.

I know that because my mother said to me, “You have great legs…and you got those from me.” Heh! I hope you enjoy the video; it’s almost like being there,  and thank you to everyone who came and everyone who has been so generous in your praise about DEAD GIRL RUNNING.

PLA Frustration: Dang that Weather!

I was thrilled to get the opportunity to go to the Public Library Association in Philadelphia and announced everywhere that I would be autographing and on a panel. I got my hair cut. I got a manicure. I was excessively groomed!

An hour after I closed my suitcase, I got a text from Alaska Air — they had cancelled my flight the next day. Mother Nature had chosen to drop huge amounts of snow on Philadelphia and I wasn’t going anywhere. I was and am devastated. I had something to say to the librarians and everyone connected to the libraries, so I sat down with my great hair and nails and made a video to talk a little about my early life in reading, how librarians are a part of my 94 year old father-in-law’s life, and to thank librarians everywhere.

I hope if you agree that our libraries are a national treasure that you’ll share this video with your friends and take the time to thank your local librarians for their part in sharing stories, literacy and community services.

DEAD GIRL RUNNING Starred Review from Booklist: “From the unforgettable heroine with a past to the incisively etched cast of secondary characters to the brilliantly imaginative plot, Dodd is at her most wildly entertaining, wickedly witty best.”
