Steve Lewis, aka my dad, has taken over Ed Gorman's series of ProFile interviews with contemporary mystery writers. The first entry includes a profile of Mary Reed and Eric Mayer, the husband-and-wife team who coauthor the John the Eunuch series (6th century Byzantium) for Poisoned Pen Press. Later interviews will appear in Mystery*File as well.
The Crime column from Toronto's Globe and Mail (15 April) has a very nice review of Margaret Doody's Mysteries of Eleusis, 5th in her Aristotle series (which Americans may have to purchase through Canada and the UK). This article will probably stop being free in a couple weeks, so if you're interested, check it out now.
And from Publishers Marketplace:
Lisa McDonald's MURDER ON THE CLIFFS, a historical mystery series featuring Daphne du Maurier as the amateur sleuth, to Hope Dellon at St. Martin's, in a nice deal, in a three-book deal, by Kim Lionetti at BookEnds.
According to her agent's website, Lisa McDonald, an Australian author, also writes historical gothic romances as Joanna Challis.
