Profile Information

Pahrump, Nevada, USA
About Me:
Started out as a university librarian, did not like it, and went into editing and feature writing for the military, feeding area newspapers with accounts of special programs, awards, etc. Edited in-house publications and some memoirs. Responsible for one major publication on Architectural History of an area in the Rio Grande Valley. Frustrated mystery writer and currently not writing, but can not stop thinking about it. Architecture and Art History are my strong points. Degrees in Anthropology and Libray Science, minored in History. Retired early because of chronic illness.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer, Librarian, Editor
Books And Authors I Like:
Way too many to list. Started out with Mark Twain and William Faulkner before I went so heavily into mysteries. Most recent discoveries are David Wiltse and Tim Dorsey. Dick Francis and Tony Hillerman are comfort reads. I try to read widely although my heart belongs in the hard boiled, lots of bodies, category.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
I like trash.

Dorothy Dunnett

Recently the name of the late British author Dorothy Dunnett appeared on two of the lists where I hang out. I had never heard of her (and thought Dunnett a great pseudonym as in "the butler done it," but that is her real name) and choose her final book as my introduction. I selected it because it was about Johnson Johnson, a portrait painter, as was Dunnett, and because it was set in Morocco. I have never been there but I did live two years in another part of the Middle East.

Hi Mary
I tried to stop writing crime stories once too (out of frustration) but it was an unhappy time. I realize now that I can live with frustration, but not without storytelling. I hope you make peace with it...or start writing again!
