"As I noted on two different lists concerning this, if you take the survey and say you don't read either one, it kicks you out and does not allow one to enter contact info for the contest."

Free Books!

This isn't BSP, it's a request for help. Would you like a whole library of new free mysteries? Well, who wouldn't? The Femmes Fatales really needs your help. We've hired a company to help us improve our blog, and their work for us is beginning with a couple of surveys, which we'd love for you to fill out. We'll enter everyone who does into a drawing for at least 16 new mysteries. Elaine Viets blogged about it today. You can see all the details here:…See More

"Welcome to CrimeSpace. I'm also a madcap mystery author, and a madcap paranormal mystery author. To my knowledge, there's no special room, we're all just mixed in here."

Kris Neri replied to Jim Thomsen's discussion Are the Authors You Know Nice People ... or Jerks?
"Most of the authors I've met, as both an author and a bookseller, have been quite positive. We've probably had well over 1500 authors appear at our store, some national bestsellers, and the jerks have been less than 1%. They've been…"

Profile Information

Hometown:
Sedona, AZ now; formerly Los Angeles, CA
About Me:
I'm a writer, writing instructor and a bookseller. I live with my husband, dog and cat in Northern Arizona, where I love hiking. In an earlier life, I enjoyed drawing and painting, but I rarely find time for it anymore. I write the Agatha, Anthony and Macavity Award-nominated Tracy Eaton mysteries, REVENGE OF THE GYPSY QUEEN, DEM BONES REVENGE and REVENGE FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE. I also write a supernatural mystery-urban fantasy series; the first book in that series, HIGH CRIMES ON THE MAGICAL PLANE, was recently nominated for a Lefty Award from Left Coast Crime 2010. I've also published some sixty short stories and am a two-time Derringer Award winner and a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee for my short fiction.

I teach writing online for the Writers' Program of the UCLA Extension School, and for various private groups, such as the Guppy Chapter of Sisters in Crime.

And with my husband, I own The Well Red Coyote bookstore in Sedona, Arizona.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer, Editor
Website:
http://www.krisneri.com
Books And Authors I Like:
Way too many to list. I read everything from cozies, to thrillers, to hardboiled mysteries, not to mention fantasy, general fiction, occasional chick lit, and in nonfiction, personal growth books and metaphysical books.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Movies...Moonstruck and Throw Mama From the Train (my favorite writing instructor movie). TV...Life on Mars, Castle, Psych, The Daily Show, The West Wing, House, House Hunters and the Rachael Maddow Show.

Authors Behaving Badly

As Charles Manson once said, "Are people strange, or am I just crazy?" Call me naïve, but as a published author myself, I assumed other authors must interact with booksellers as courteously as I do. I've always believed intelligence and unusual sensitivity to be typical traits among those who write. For the most part I've found that to be true. But I’m also a bookseller now — my husband and I own The Well Red Coyote bookstore in Sedona, Arizona. During my four-year tenure as a bookseller, I've… Continue

I'm looking forward to meeting you, too. I haven't met any other Crime Spacers.
p.s. My photo on here is old, so just do age progression. *grin*

OK, I will plan to make a day of it then. And will come early! Yay! I am so excited!

Oh my gosh, how very cool! I will try to make it to your signing and workshop, Kris!
Is there a cost/registration, or just first-come seating basis?

Ok, I sent an empty friend request. I wanted to say I love Sedona, have been to the Wild Coyote & a mystical murder mystery? Googling now!

Hi Kris, I came across one of your discussions where you asked if a prosecuting attorney would take a leave of absence and act as a defense attorney? I had two cousins that lived in Hawaii ( they were twins & both dead now I think). They had a law practice and would alternate running for and serving as district attorney. One of them was name Robert St. Sure.

I know I'm probably late, but as they say better late than never. Steve St. Sure
