DVD Reviews: DECOY and CORONET BLUE

Posted by / in TV Shows on DVD / 1 comment

Two short-lived, NY-based crime shows have finally come out on DVD…and they are both gems. DECOY stars Beverly Garland as police woman Casey Jones and was the first TV series to shoot on location in New York. It was also the first series to feature a police woman in the lead role. All 39 episodes […]

The Mail I Get – Long Overdue Monk Edition

Posted by / in Monk Books, The Mail I Get / 7 comments

I’ve been getting lots of questions about my MONK series. Here are just a few of them. Hi Lee, quick question about the Monk books. I know they’re stand-alones, but did you intend for the characters to have gradual progressions from book 1 to book 15, which wouldn’t necessarily require the reader to read them […]

The Mail I Get – Scammers Edition

Posted by / in Scams, Self Publishing, The Mail I Get / 3 comments

Even in this age of easy self-publishing, the scammers are still out there… and there are still plenty of suckers. I recently ran into an author who not only “published” his book through Authorhouse, he also paid them extra to buy positive reviews for him in the worthless “self-published books” versions of Publishers Weekly and […]

Book Review: Two Masters at Work

Posted by / in Book Reviews / 2 comments

Little White Lies By Ace Atkins. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again… Ace Atkins is writing better Spenser novels now than the last few that Robert B. Parker wrote before his death. Not only does Atkins perfectly channel Robert B. Parker’s voice, without slipping into satire or pastiche, he also matches Parker at his best […]

TV Books They Wrote – Books on Sitcoms of the 1970s & 80s

Posted by / in Book Reviews / 2 comments

The Bradypedia: The Complete Reference Guide to Television’s The Brady Bunch by Erika Woehlk. There have been dozens of books written about The Brady Bunch and its many sequels, spin-offs, and reboots. This one is not the best and it’s not the worst. I’d say it falls somewhere in the middle. The bulk of the book is an […]

Book Review: Three Good TV Reference Books

Posted by / in Book Reviews / 1 comment

The Case of the Alliterative Attorney: A Guide to the Perry Mason TV Series and TV Movies by Bill Sullivan and Ed Robertson. The mammoth, 700-page size of this substantial TV reference work befits the big man Raymond Burr and his long-running series. It’s a great, breezily-written book from two solid pros that’s well-sourced with […]

More Gleason

Posted by / in Me Me Me / 3 comments

Last night I went to the memorial for my dear friend and mentor Michael Gleason, who passed away a few weeks ago. Here is a short essay I wrote for the memorial keepsake that was given out to family members.
I am the writer I am today largely because of Michael Gleason. And in some ways, I am the man I am today because of him, too…

The Warrant For My Arrest Scam

Posted by / in Scams / 17 comments

I had great fun today talking with “Lt. David O’Neal” of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, who left a message on my voicemail to let me know that a warrant had been issued for my arrest. He told me I had to call him back today at 213-334-6708. I did…knowing full well it was […]
