Hi Victoria. I'm in the middle of writing my first novel. I've just started reading some Raymond Chandler. Which other Noir/Detective novels do you recommend?

Thanks for the add, Victoria.  The Past Never Ends didn't make the cut.  I'm just glad it was considered.  The Expats by Chris Pavone got the Edgar for Best First Mystery Novel.

I've been away from here for a while and just read your blog on Dracula.  Nice job!

Dracula is also the first legal thriller.  Stoker beat Grisham by almost a century.  https://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_posts/4383233-dracula-as-legal-thriller

What do you think?

Yes and no, Victoria. I have more than 20 years of military service, but most of it is reserve time. I did 13 years in the Coast Guard, active and reserve, split between two enlistments, with three years in the Navy Reserve in between. I'm now a major in a component of the California National Guard, and I work for the Navy as a civilian analyst in battlefield medical capabilities.

Check out We Can't Dance Together at A Twist of Noir!
(based on that Steely Dan song that's been stuck in your head since 1980)

Richlands is in southwestern Virginia, about half way between Bluefield, West Virginia, and Bristol, Tennessee.

And you are now in Ivy. Where is that? I once lived in Richlands, Virginia. Editor for the newspaper there.

Thanks for the add.
Now let's go littler the world with provocative crime fiction!

Hello Victoria. I'm glad you enjoyed the cartoon. I hope you like the book.

Likewise.

Portland is....ok. Too dreary in fall/winter/spring but near perfect in summer.

hi Victoria. I you like Wolf Hall, you'll love an earlier one by Mantel -- A Place of Greater Safety. One of the best books I've ever read, truly. Matt

I enjoyed viewing your photos.

AH! Now that I didn't consider.....thanks for explanation. In retrospect I thought perhaps the bridges reminded me a bit of Budapest.

And I yours. I do both fiction and non-fiction. If you want to read a sample of my non-fiction, you can read my NYT Modern Love essay entitled The Wrong Kind of Inheritance. As for fiction, my agent has recently started shopping my first novel around. It's historical spy fiction that people who've read it tend to compare to Alan Furst. If it's true, I'm honored. Cross your fingers for me.

You and I have the same tastes in the literary arts. Sounds like you had a great childhood, as well. So, what's your writing like? Look forward to reading some of your work!
Loretta
