"Many people hear voices when no one is there. Some of them are called 'mad' and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called 'writers' and they do pretty much the same thing." - Meg Chittenden
"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake to find that all was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men for they may act their dream with open eyes and make it possible." - Soren Kierkegard
"As writers, it is our job to use words to convey what cannot be seen, to make felt through words what is seen and to bring about a sense of fulfillment and wholeness to the reader - a sense of wonderment, joy, and discovery through our craft". - E. Lee Caleca
Lee . . . How nice to connect with you through CrimeSpace. Hendersonville . . . where is that in Tennessee. For a time, I was a graduate student at UT/Knoxville, and I know in my driving around the state I never got to your town.

Hi Lee - Catherine Bell (even with a "K") is a great name. If you google it - the big busted actress who also sports the same name comes up. I think I might be somewhere in the middle of your character from your first novel and the actress/pin up girl - ok maybe a little bit closer to your character's side of the scale! Cheers and thanks for the welcome:)
Thanks for the advice and the welcome. I intend to make good use of the website. Having worked in mid-management private security, Calif Youth Authority and now with law enforcement I tend to take everything with a grain of salt. Looking forward to future discussions.
Thanks for the welcome, it's very much appreciated! What did I think of Bones season finale? Loved it and can't wait for it to start again. It was interesting to see how the writers split them all up and sent them on their way, sort of like making them find themselves. I felt sorry for poor Sweets, he always seems to get the raw end of the prawn. And yes, what was with the hug between Bones and Booth? Should have been muuuuuuch longer with a nice kiss thrown in for good measure! Btw, hope you don't mind, but I've added you on Facebook...us Lee's have got to stick together! LOL
Wow! You are a dear one--Thank you. You have made my day! Wish you great success with your writing and hope you enjoy your experiences on Crime Space. Being a newbie, I have learned much from the comments of our more experienced members posts.
Hello, Lee, thank you. No, I don't have a release date yet. It shouldn't be too long now. There might be a couple of final combings over at the publisher's suggestion. But they do drag their heels, if I may be so bold to say so.
