    Hi Mitzi - Much obliged for the invite, I appreciate it. I see you've taught erotic fiction in the Greek islands ... I've just found my ideal holiday! It wasn't on the south coast of Crete, by any chance? Cheers, Dec

    Hi Miz Mitzi . . . groovy to see you in the neighborhood!
  • Neil White

    But still sounds more fun as research. Although I do like reading grisly accounts of murders, etc.
  • A F Waddell

    Either that or you have a clone . . .
  • Neil White

    Repressed northerner who has so far avoided, out of embarrassment, writing a "vivid" love scene and likely to to remain that way. I'd never be able to go into work again.
  • Mary Saums

    Hi, Mitzi - Another Shirley Valentine fan! Nice to see you here.
  • Mitzi Szereto

    LOL, yeah - and that 'Greek' fella and his 'fock'.
  • joe miller

    Hi Mitzi,
    Little Charlie is one of the many affections that I discovered running Blues & Jazz clubs in Atlanta. I've written for years, but started a Romance Suspense story last year which is my first serious project. Any advice for a rookie.

  • joe miller

    That sounds like my dance move...LOL

    Take care
  • L.J. Sellers

    I'm starting to think you might enjoy my novel.
  • Mitzi Szereto

    Why's that? I tend to shy away from sexy literature LOL!
  • Alison Bruce

    Hi Mitzi,

    I think you may cause a few ripples in the repressed bit of our wonderful country - go girl!

  • Naomi Hirahara

    Getting even sounds fascinating!
  • carole gill

    I'm going to get a copy!
    and I'll tell you to reconfirm what I already suspect to be true.
    you can spot cool a mile off sometimes!
  • carole gill

    ooh! I say!
    too much fondness for taste makes me too substantial (girth wise)!
    but thanks!

  • Charlotte Williamson

    Thanks for inviting me to be your Crimespace friend. I love London. It is such a fascinating city. And Big! So much to see and do. The flora in the Summertime is awesome. I want to go back one of these days. I love watching the British mystery series on American television. Especially Inspector Lynnly, the 8th Earl of Aston. (His television personna)

    Hello der! How be da bare? ~ thomas
  • Charlotte Williamson

    Yeah, the exchange rate was pretty bad when we were over there.
    You bio is very impressive. I can only hope to garner a very small amount of the achievements that you have. I got a start on writing late in life. (It was "okay, I'm retired, bored and what can I do now.") My youth was spent busily rearing a husband and two children. I didn't get career-oriented until my early forties, when I became a Deputy Sheriff (Of course, I was still fit-as-a-fiddle and had energy to burn)
  • Charlotte Williamson

    I've got a lot to say. I just hope I'm around for another 30 years or so, so I can write about it. It's a good thing most writer's areen't in it to make money. It's just the fun of it. Of course, getting paid for what you write is a bonus. I'm tryingto get your BBC podcast.
  • Mitzi Szereto

    I know - there's never enough time! Or money! :-(
  • Anne Brooke

    Thanks for the add, Mitzi - good to meet you here as well.

  • robert walker

  • J. Michael Jenne

    Dear Mitzi,

    In searching my family origins, I've gone back to 1584 Scrooby England, and 1066, " The Battle Of Hastings." I tried to hit your web site but couldn't connect. If you Email me direct, I have some information that might interest you.


    J. Michael Jenne

    It's very nice to meet you Mitzi. I hope we shall become good friends. Take care...Jillian

    Hi Mitzi. You had a rough weekend too huh? Just remember that...THIS TOO SHALL PASS. Have a great week...Hugz...Jillian
  • Laura L. Cooper

    Thanks for the friend invite. Sorry for the late reply. Interesting page, and I especially like the cover of GETTING EVEN.
  • Cormac Brown

    Thank you for accepting my invite and Happy New Year!
  • Miriam Pia


    I know it has been a long time, but thank you. I have just started a writing contract for a man who lives there in London....and you know I am one of the Writers Bureau writers.

    Your projects seem impressive to me. Last week, two more outlets for my second novel have emerged but neither is the rather more obvious - many copies mailed out to publishers. I have no idea why not. I don't know if there is any connection with my handedness issue and having difficulty with something that is supposed to be easy or what.

    How was your BBC thing?

    Thanks so much,
