Hey, David! I came up with Hannibal well before the Lector guy. His father wanted to name him after an historic military figure and Hannibal was the only great African general he knew. Maybe the stigma will lessen when they make the A-Team movie. then people ask me if I named him after Hannibal Smith. ;-)
David -- Sorry I have been away. The book came, but I haven't got it in my hands yet. But I am getting it delivered to me. Can't wait! Sorry to be so long in replying -- talk to you shortly, Katherine.
Great photo -- what a mean dive! I usually stand at the shore with my toes in for hours and give hateful looks to anyone who thinks about splashing me. I hate cold water, and have acquired a fear of fish somewhere along the way too. Not so much the sharks, but those little pike and trout that live in those deep dark lakes and brush up against you when you're swimming. Could be I have the same fear with this group -- but I'm sure eventually I'll make it to the deep end!
I was interested in your book and movie selections -- you mention a lot of things that touch on Canada. Sara Polley's Away from Her was such a wonderful film. I'd really like to read your book set in the Arctic. It is a big interest of mine, and spent some time interviewing an Inuit woman for a book I'm considering. They have the most interesting murders up there!
So theres hope for me yet hooray! I might have to read her book, she sounds inspirational. I know someone similar (book stolen) but happily she won the case and has since been published. Good Vs Evil. good always wins doesn't it?
I Love Bill Brysons books I think it was published as Down Under, here not sure though. Perhaps there are two books? If so I would love to read he other one, he is so funny. I can't remember the title but the english one is great too. Did you visit Manly in NSW or Qld. Glad you like Australia and all us Aussies.
Happy scribing to you : )
Thanks for your witty welcome David. Yes I am from the land down under, ever been? Do you like living in D.C? Is it as political as it seems in books, movies etc? Love your photos. Happy scribing to you : )
In real life bailbondsmen have the ability to act as hunters. In fact in the state of Florida the bondsmen association lobbied to keep hunters out. They do their own hunting when necessary so not as to have to pay the hunter.
So I guess you could say that Max Cherry could be both a bondsman and a hunter.
I will read the book now because you have nudged my interest.
Thanks for clarifying. See what too much gin and too little sleep will do to an otherwise perfectly good brain? I am interested in looking for The Suicide Diary, just because it seem so crazy good. Your work is now on my list of writers to explore. I will write more once I read you!
