Profile Information

About Me:
I'm the editor of The Rap Sheet, the senior editor of January Magazine, and the author of five books about regional U.S. history and travel. I am currently at work on my first novel--not a "crime novel," per se, but definitely a novel incorporating crime.

Celebrating Five Years of "Forgotten Books"

As hard as this is to believe, it was a full five years ago this month that Derringer Award-winning short-story writer Patricia “Patti” Abbott suggested it might be fun -- and perhaps even a bit enlightening -- for the Web’s growing ranks of book bloggers to recommend, each Friday, “books we love but might forgotten over the years.” That proposal has since generated many thousands of posts about unjustly…

I Left My Art in San Francisco

Perhaps I should explain why this page suddenly has a San Francisco theme, even though I actually live in Seattle, Washington.

Partly, it's because I am a longtime fan of what newspaper columnist Herb Caen called "Baghdad by the Bay." But it is also because I've just embarked on the writing of a photo history of San Francisco. This will be my… Continue

The Carnival Has Arrived!

Well, it took more than a little time and even more frantic double-checking to be sure that everything was in place, but the second installment of the Carnival of the Criminal Minds is finally up at The Rap Sheet. You can read it here.

As most of you know, Barbara Fister proposed in a mid-September… Continue

How Did I Get Myself Into This?

I'm not generally a joiner, and you can barely get me to attend conventions of crime writers and readers. Yet my friend Ali Karim prevailed upon me sign up with Crimespace. And since I wrote a Rap Sheet post about this new service some while back, I reasoned that I really ought to give it a shot.

I think I'll use this first post to promote a little something we're doing over at The Rap Sheet: conducting our second poll, this one asking readers to name their favorite TV police… Continue

Hi Jeff, thanks for the kind message. Good to spot a friendly face - or typewriter - somewhere new (for me).

Hi, I didn't know you were on crimespace. Nice to see you here.

Thanks for the add!

Just thought I would say Hi and good luck with your novel.
I wasn't a "joiner" either until I started marketing my novel.
I'm glad to be one of the converted.

Thanks so much, Jeff. I was delighted to see you not only mentioned Poe's Deadly Daughters on the Rap Sheet again but gave my name an airing re my interview with Rhys Bowen. Thank you! I'm having a great time interviewing some of the luminaries of the mystery/crime fiction world.
Best, Liz
PS BTW, what's the protocol for submitting a book for review on (in?) January? I checked the site but didn't spot the info. Does the author ask the publisher to send an ARC? My first, Death Will Get You Sober, will be out next April from St. Martin's, and I'm trying to tread the maze without getting too hopelessly lost. :)

Hi Jeff. Thanks for the mention of Poe's Deadly Daughters as a "schmooze-worthy" blog. May we quote you?

Hey there! I enjoy your blog!

Jeff! Two years ago, Delphine Cingal and I wrote a Sparkle Hayter interview for you. Glad to "see" you after so long! I sent you an email a few days ago about my 1st novel hitting the streets, and now I bump into you on CrimeSpace. I hope this finds you in happy spirits!
Blessings on your path,
