Yup, I am on Nathan's blog, trying to get the scoop on the publishing world. Nice to connect with a fellow crime fiction writer! I read your "about me" page, good luck with the final few days before earning your master's degree in criminal forensics studies.

Greetings! I see we share much of the same interests. I was a psych undergrad and have always been fascinated with causes of behavior. I started reading true crime novels when i was in school and have continued to study crimes. In fact I am always accused of digging too deep but I really want to know who my characters are and what makes them behave as they do. And you?

I definitely prefer CrimeSpace to MySpace, though I don't give it nearly the attention it deserves. So much to do on the internet, so little time. Back in the days when I had to write on a typewriter, 10,000 word days were not unusual. Now, in the days of these "efficient" electrological computing boxes, a thousand words is a miracle. Oh, the distractions.

Aaack! As an artist myself, I tried to figured out how I'd approach it as a visual and that's pretty much the *ahem* angle I'd have taken. You REALLY captured the essence of the story - great job and thanks for posting the image here. I have zero skills when it comes to this computer stuff.

Josephine,
I was the illustrator for your story, "Pennies From Heaven". Your story really broke my heart. Tough and well written. Here is the original sketch for your story:

Brian: I think of all dogs as puppies, basically a baby to be pampered and adored. Glad to hear your book is doing well.

Jack: Let's hope the agents think so. My McCarthy fandom does not go past BLOOD MERIDIAN - I did not care for THE ROAD, just as you don't share my enthusiasm for OOA. I see lots of gender differences with likes and dislikes, and it's quite a subjective biz we're in.

Good background for a writer. Any Cormac McCarthy fan is a friend of mine ... But I never did "get" OUT OF AFRICA, except for the sweep of the African setting.

Hi Josephine. The cute puppy is in fact almost 4 years old and is very intelligent. she does agility work, search and rescue, and play s flyball and is quite a little star in her own right. Thanks for your good wishes for the book. It's becoming quite a cult in itself at rpesent and selling incredibly well.

Best regards and great to know you.

Brian

Tom, thanks! I'm afraid I started on myspace as opposed to facebook, so I guess I'm stuck there for now although facebook looks more fun - scrabble games!

Yes, LJ is nice to chat with. I'm meeting lots of great people here.

Hi, Josephine! Nice to be invited to your corner of the Internet. That's quite a resume! I see LJ Sellers is a friend. She and I are friends on facebook, as well. Cheers! ~ thomas

LJ: If a person is being autopsied it's because their death falls into the "forensic context" - was deemed suspicious for any number of reasons. Could be a civil or criminal trial may result and the coroner needs to testify that there was no possibility of any one but a sworn legal officer or background-checked staff who got near the body, which is technically the evidence, which is why it's hard to get some coroner to let you watch.

Also, a lot of macho, hardened homicide cops turn into girlie-men and keel over at the sight of all that butchery, so the coroner figures the average citizen might not be able to handle it as well.

Eugene just hired a new ME, who says no to the autopsy for now. But we'll see. I'll try another nearby town and let you know how it goes.

Jon/D.H - I know you well from myspace, and your agent has blogged about you as well.

Hi Josephine,
Very nice to see you here. Thanks for finding me. I just got back from Noircon, which was amazing. I'm sure they'll be doing it again next year, so if you get the chance to go, I highly recommend it.
Thanks again!

Thanks, that was an older story from 2001, but I've always had a soft spot for it. Haven't had a chance to read the issue of OOG yet, but will look for yours! Have a great weekend.

LJ: That is on my "To Do" list - but first I need to finish my master's thesis and WIP.

John: Your blog is one of my regular reads.

Craig: Did you know Welles considered Harry Lime as his greatest role, even more so than Kane? I also love the look of the film and the music as well.

Amra: I hope you don't think I'm a stalker! lol

Rick: So many familiar faces here. It's nice to be among friends.

Hi Josephine
Your studies sound fascinating. You should write a book about criminal behavior, specifically for writers, so we can all learn what you know.
Good luck with your writing.

Nice to see you here, Josephine, thanks for the invite.

Thanks so much for the invite, Josephine. I've been watching the Criterion version of The Third Man over and over lately...still one of the greatest noirs...

Thanks for the add. Good to see you on here, Josephine!
