the james deans

Yes, im slow.

I'm very very slow.

But i just read THE JAMES DEANS.

WOW.

I can't describe what i loved about this book, in the same way i could never explain what i loved about the Matt Scudder books.

Also, i've been thinking about getting back to the fletch books. I've read the first one and a couple of others. Maybe its time to fill the gaps.

Greetings from New Orleans - My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…..it’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my Crimespace page.

It seems word of Paisley travels far. I drink there sometimes (but with my english accent, i drink very quietly).

Acch Laddie! You're an aspiring writer? Pure! I dinnae kaen at! That's greaayte.
Glasgow's nice enough, but Paisley? Ooof! My forebears left there in 1746 (post-Culloden) for the American Colonies. The Love / McKinnon connection migrated through Indian Country, and inter-married with the "Sioux" tribes. That's where I came from, part of the "Colorado Loves." I love to visit Scotland, where my last name came from, and hoist a Lafroig Heather Ale. I really like Brewmaster Bruce's efforts to bring back ancient Scottish Ales, except that Green Grosnet brew.
Welcome to CrimeSpace! I'm 22 years older than you, but I do have a novel in stores, two more under contract, and I sold a symphonic music piece, too. Looking forward to you catching up (but at a younger age.)!
