Paulette’s Wild Women Mystery, Death Can Be Murder
is also available at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble

   Sally Kelleher, a grumpy heroine, and her four irrepressible baby-boomer friends are vacationing together in Sally’s small Midwestern hometown. Her elderly mentor has just died and Sally believes the death was no accident. She is attracted to a younger man who is also the chief suspect. Somebody is trying to kill her and she is nearing menopause. Who wouldn’t be grumpy?
   Things are never what they seem in a small prairie town, where long suppressed rage erupts and kills. If Sally and her coterie of indomitable women do not discover the murderer, she will be the next victim.

Command of Silence by Paulette Callen

Two children have been stolen at different times out of the same household, one an infant from a bedroom, the other stolen from a playground.

Into this baffling case enters Shiloh & Company, a unique detective “agency” composed of disparate personalities — Sugartime, Hester, Isadora, Lance, Olive, Hawk — who reside in the single person of Shiloh. Well known to a cooperative if uneasy police department for her investigative effectiveness, Shiloh's assorted identities, born out of extreme childhood trauma, have acquired a collective instinct, a priceless gift in detective work: an unerring tuning fork for the truth.

Shiloh has been nursed back to functioning health and sanity by therapist Ray Martinez, still intent on integrating all the self-protective personalities. But this case is lethal to Shiloh's very identity: a crime involving children cuts to the heart of what first brought Shiloh to Ray's attention. In pursuing this mystery, the fragile mental health and fragmented existence of Shiloh will be tested to its limit.

Allow yourself time for Command of Silence. Once you pick it up you will be reluctant to leave the compelling world of Shiloh and Company.

  “. . . this mystery is a rocket ship ride into a new galaxy of fiction.”

In Dog Blessings I write about ZoŽ, a remarkable dog who was taken from a wild pack in Queens, adopted by my friend Erika, and who went on to became a therapy dog. This is her portrait. Her story is worth reading, as is this whole collection.

After 9/11, my college sent out a query to all alumni living in New York to write their stories of that event. Here's mine. The number at the end, 6000, was what everyone thought the loss was at the time.
