Hi Patti - yes, I'll happily have a crack at a forgotten book review - sounds like a great project. Just tell me a bit more about what you require and I'll put my brain in to steep.

Cheers, m'dear!

shouting out to my michigan fam!

BTW, if you're a fiction reader, check out my books based in Detroit (all except Stone's Revenge, which is in Ohio). I'm a sensual noir author and I'm sure you'll enjoy them (not just because I wrote them, LOL.) Check out my books at by clicking here.

if you want to keep up with other michigan's literary community, join

Patti: I completely forgot about this note from you! I meant to say HI THERE are Bcon this past week, but we kept passing in the night, so to speak. It has to have been the best con I've ever been to, not counting Sleuthfest of course :) Hope to see you at a sleuthfest sometime.

If you still want to do one, just email me a book you'd like remembered and comments at and I'll post it. Thanks.

Hi Patricia

Apologies, I just came across your message about a favorite "forgotten" book. Can you tell me more about what you want?

Bill Crider did a piece on his column and I don't like to disappear beforehand.

You got it. I'll try to do both after looking at your blog and getting a feel for what's already out there. And tell me more about the EQMM article when you get a chance.
