My September 11th post

Back in the 90's, my friend Troy, whose father had been a police officer introduced me to Concerns of Police Survivors(C.O.P.S.)

C.O.P.S. provides assistance for the families of police officers killed in the line of duty. They help with counseling, scholarships, summer programs for kids and teens and more.

Please consider making a small donation to C.O.P.S.

A dubious brag

For the first time today I successfully picked a lock. I was able to repeat the feat a couple times too.

The things we do for research. OK, also so we can brag that we did them.

I'm writing my first novel. Most of you have completed several, but I am going to ask you to throw your mind back to that first one and wondering if you could ever finish it. I've neve had faith that I could finish this book. In fact, that's actually been one of my biggest obstacles to finishing. Kind of like punching yourself in the crotch.

Where's Michael?

Packing to move. Thirty boxes of books and no end in sight! I close on a fine new house Wednesday and I am trying to be all ready to exit the current one, ASAP so that it can get a quick paint job and clean up. I need it to sell fast.

I was very impressed with Janet Maslin's review of "What the Dead Know" by Laura Lippman and I am looking forward to reading it, but I'm sure as hell not buying any more books…

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?

No, really. I'm seriously asking. Who would know that?

Hiya, Crime-Kids. Despite fear of social networking fatigue I can't resist joining this community. My primary blog is http://kokyu.livejournal.com. All my really sincere stalkers will find me there.
