Wow, Sea of Love! Great movie, and the grocery store scene was fabulous. Ellen Barkin and Al Pacino had great chemistry. Also, I read somewhere that the FBI uses that film (among many) at their training course about serial offenders. Thanks for the comment, David
And now I learn on Sheila Quigley's page you write books with a blind protagonist. I am in awe. Being disabled myself (or am I handi-capable, like they tried to put over a few years ago) I have a special interest in disabilities in fiction. Seattle Public Library has a couple of lists of books with disabled characters, I will look to see if your books are on them.
Books have always been my window on the world. I wore out several bedspreads as a child reading books in my room. But I occasionally get out on my scooter. As a matter of fact, we (my service dog and I) are about to leave for a scooter ride.... to the library, natch. But we'll probably have to bus it, the winds really blowing and I don't think my battery has enough juice for the whole trip. Need new batteries or a better head that remembers to plug it in.
Nah Normal's about an hour east of Peoria. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello to the newbie....I'm still learning the ropes here and to be honest Crime and Mystery aren't my strong suit but I'm always up to meeting new people with a passion for writing and who enjoy to read as much as I do.
The contrasts always catch my attention too. The homeless-looking guy on a $1500 bicycle. The old woman driving the '77 Charger.
Your comments on my photo would make my photographer (good friend Gwen) very proud. We worked for hours to get one good shot. She thinks the photo on the inside of my book, although attractive, is not appropriate for a mystery writer. She convinced me that I needed a mysterious and intense look for my mysterious and intense writing.
