Last night we watched the opening episode of a series, originally from the BBC, on public television "Life on Mars." John Simm is brilliant, truly brilliant playing a detective who gets hit by a car and (is he in a coma or is it for real) ends up in 1973... I was breathless by the end. Whooping and hollering at how perfect the ending was. It was one of the most stunning TV dramas I have ever seen. I gather it won lots of awards and American producers tried to remake it here but it failed.As I…See More

Hallie,

It was nice seeing you at the Crime Bake and sharing a table with you yesterday.

Mike

I also enjoyed the movie made from your book.

Why don't you and Stiletto join up?

You do good stuff there. Love to be in one of your classes. Your coverage of character, I think it was, at MWAU was as good a one hour thumbnail on writing the novel that I have ever attended and absorbed.

Your book WRITING AND SELLING YOUR MYSTERY NOVEL: HOW TO KNOCK 'EM DEAD WITH STYLE, covers it all. Tyros would be wise to get it. Hacks like I am who have been at this for--well, a long time--can get a lot out of it. Anyone wanting to write mysteries should read it.

Christina Ward highly recommends you as a teacher to us writers in the "still learning" stage.
