Hi Nancy. I spent 18 years in LA working as an actor, and now have got a PI novel in progress set there. And, of course, the PI is an actor. :)

Thanks Nancy for the contact. As others have commented on your book list, here's my pennyworth: why not spread your wings and venture beyond the US of A? Only one non-American writer (Val McDairmid). Try Rankin, Fossum, Mankel, Andriasson, Temple, Maitland, Browne and so many more, including the original police proceduralists Sjowall and Wahloo. You could even look at my own - one published, a second finished and the third well on its way. All the best, Tony B

Hi Nancy. (First off - that's a great photo!) Are you actually IN law inforcement? I see you live in LA. I know a lot of crime writers who would love to know and talk to someone like you for research on their books. Do you ever do that sort of thing? What do you write? I don't see a book title on your page; does that mean you're in the process? I'm not a book author, but I do write for a newspaper, and do a lot of book (and theatre) reviews. I've reviewed some pretty good law inforcement and forensic books. I love reading Michael Connelly's Det. Harry Bosch books. His newest - The Brass Verdict - has his Det. Bosch character as well as his Lincoln Lawyer guy. Anyway, thanks for the invite!

Hi Nancy,
You're my first friend on Crimespace and I appreciate your welcome. I don't normally write crime fiction, but my recent book, Savage Days Haunted Nights, availible now on Amazon.com, definitly deals with criminals, the threat of murder, the savagery of loan sharks, etc., but I must let you know it's not formula fiction. The crimes featured in this book are starkly realistic and as chilling as it gets. But there are other striking messages in this tale no less dramatic and gripping than hunting down murderers. However, murder's in the air from almost the first page of this story to the last.
Thanks for your interest.

Hello Nancy,
I'm proud to be your friend. I took a moment and read some of the comments others have placed on your Comment Wall & I agree with Russ Heitz: you have a nice assortment of authors listed as your favorites. Since Dash Hammett is dead and Robert Parker (despite his prolific skills) cannot write a new Spenser book every week, I'm going to check out some of the authors you mentioned. Lwrence Block is another I enjoy very much: his Matthew Scudder books are a little rougher than Spenser - but I find them enjoyable. Have you read WHEN THE SACRED GINMILL CLOSES? Are you a cop?! I'm a retired social worker, unsuccessful at marketing a book about a social worker last year. I can appreciate why people wouldn't want to buy it - but it helped me get rid of some demons. Are you going to the Love Is Murder conference?

Nancy, I worked for 17 years at the Fresno Co. Sheriff's Dept. Most of that time was spent as Girl Friday with an undercover narcotics team. Our office was a double-wide trailer in a nectarine orchard! I lived to tell the tales. "Fools Rush In" is about a major meth dealer we busted. "Where Angels Fear" is about a sex club (we thought it was a vegetable store). The book is coming out in Feb.

Nancy - thanks for the invite. I Produced a Documentary years ago titled ALMA about a woman named Alma Thorpe and her daughter Margie, which was a peek into Southern madness, mayhem, and matriarchs. It often gets programmed with The Maysles's Grey Gardens.

Do you have any family down that way?

Good morning Nancy: Glad to meet you. Check out The Anna Mae Mysteries-The Golden Treasure. It's a bit off the beaten path, but I believe that you'll enjoy reading it. Check out PIVTR-http://internetvoicesradio. Perhaps, you'd like to start your own investigative crime program. Happy New Years!

Thanks for the invite. I'm always on the lookout for good crime fiction writers, so I look forward to working my way through your interesting list.

May the Holiday Season find your fondest wishes met and your loved ones loved.

Nancy, thanks for the friendship invite. I lived in LA and worked at the ABC studios for years, before moving to Key West to work at the newspaper. I was there last July for sigings, wish we were in contact then! Maybe for the next book. Please keep in touch.
