Yeah, I worked with Tim briefly back in '83 when he had a small weekly paper, The Western Star, up here in the Roseboro/Clinton area.

I'll look at your site and info. more closely and put your book on my order list. I buy numerous each year, and always try to patronize local folks, especially. Look forward to it.

My own murder mystery, as yet unpublished, is located in Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach, as well as on the UNC-W campus.

Also, forgot her name at the moment(I'll look it up), but Scott Turow's publicist at Hachett Book Group is also a graduate of UNC-W and was close to Tim and his wife while there.
