LAUNCH of NONE SO DEADLY - 4th book in the Cullen and Cobb Mystery Series
- by David A Poulsen (published by Dundurn Books, Toronto, ON)
An amazing launch last night of None So Deadly, Book 4 of the Cullen and Cobb Mystery series. Packed house at Owl's Nest Books, so many laughs, signed a ton of books and, best of all, spent a memorable evening with #CullenandCobb fans, old friends and new friends--all of them good sports during the Cullen and Cobb Trivia Challenge. Thanks to all who made last night so special.

Whipped - a reviewREVIEW of Whipped - an Arthur Beauchamp novel by William Deverell

I’d been saving it for the right time.

Like people save the last piece of pie to top off the perfect dinner. Or one more viewing of Casablanca for that special Saturday night. Or that really great Italian red for the romantic moment.

For me the right time to read William Deverell’s latest Arthur Beauchamp novel was during a long-awaited couple of weeks at our Arizona place—an escape from several savage weeks of vicious prairie cold, the worst February in eighty-three years I think the commentator said.

And neither Deverell nor Beauchamp (pronounced Beecham) disappointed. I was already familiar in general terms with Whipped (ECW Press, Toronto, 2018), having had the pleasure of hosting the 2018 Calgary edition of the Arthur Ellis Awards shortlist announcement evening. A special part of that evening was Bill’s visit to Calgary and my good fortune to interview him (“An Evening with William Deverell”) as the feature part of the event. The interview was delightful—Deverell is, like the hero of his mystery series, funny, erudite and charming and I’m quite certain that the gathered throng enjoyed spending time with the creator of Street Legal (among other things) as much as I did. And during the course of our chat, Bill talked about Beauchamp and introduced us to Whipped.

Which brings me back to the Arizona desert where several months after purchasing the novel, I was at last ready to crack the cover.

Spring has always been my favourite time of year
- website update by David A Poulsen
CrocusesSpring has always been my favourite time of year.

It’s the time of renewal as Mother Nature’s magical world emerges from its winter dormancy to present us once again with the beauty of the natural world around us. Spring also marks the return of baseball and rodeo season, two of the things I love most about this time. And too there’s the arrival of so many great new books as publishers release authors’ latest works to an anxiously waiting reading public.

I’m especially excited as None So Deadly, fourth book in the Cullen and Cobb Mysteries will be launched in May (May 22, Owls Nest Books in Calgary, 7 pm). The series continues to chug along, and I’m delighted at the responses of so many readers to the series.

I’m working on my next book for younger readers and it too has something of a mystery going on—having a lot of fun with this one and I’m hoping to have it wrapped up by year’s end. There are lots of school author visits looming as well as the annual YABS Wordpower Tour (this year—Grande Prairie) also on the near horizon, also a big part of what I love about spring.

2019 should also be a big one here at the ranch as we are taking on some much-needed renovations both in the house and outside as well. With a busy rodeo/bull riding schedule to work around, it looks like there won’t be a lot of downtime as we try to take advantage of every minute of cooperative weather. Well, maybe not a lot of downtime but my favourite place on the planet is still the back deck and there will plenty of coffee consumed in the mornings and the unbeatable smell of barbecues happening lots of evenings—I’m pretty sure of that.

And so as spring eases into full bloom, I wish you crocuses, good books, glorious sunsets, amazing horses, good calving weather and lots of good times surrounded by those you love.

Happy Spring to all of you!
