Regarding Janet E., I think I've probably said it all--for good or ill. :)

I actually didn't mention all the stuff I liked about Stephanie Plum--all the Jersey stuff, the blue-haired ladies packing heat and Stephanie's family (esp. Grandma Mazur, of course).

One thing no one pointed out was how different the first book was from the others. It was a bit darker, I thought, with less emphasis on the romance angle.

I think my favorite was Book 2, because of Grandma Mazur's obsession with funerals and the great, over-the-top comic feel it had.

The romance storyline has grown stronger with each book. I noticed at Book 4 that it was basically a romance novel with some comic mystery in it. That's when I started getting a bit less enchanted with the series, but kept at it until Book 6. That was it for me.

Oh, well. Fun while it lasted, but the series has run its course with me.

Hi, Pat - nice to hear from you! It has been ages since I read Lucky Jim. I'm a big fan of British humor, especially PG Wodehouse.

Thanks Pat for your compliment on Journey of the Spirit. I appreciate it and understand that you can't be at the book launch.

You might have to search a bit, but there should be a Brandy Alexander up already.

Cheers,
Daniel

Hey there, P.B. The times here are all set to Australian, because that's where I'm from. It's a known problem and there will be a fix so that times are displayed as local.

Just thought I should let you know. :)

Another of my favorite Southern authors is Sheila Bosworth. Like Harper Lee, she had but one story to tell. She simply told it over the course of two volumes: ALMOST INNOCENT, a breathtaking debut published in 1986 to reviews comparing her to Henry James and calling her one of the new voices of the South, and SLOW POISON, published in 1992. After that, she disappeared into the piney woods north of New Orleans, from whence she emerges on occasion to edit a short story anthology or attend a writers' conference. I had the privilege of meeting her when I lived in Covington, Louisiana. She's one of those dreamy, artistic souls and quite pleasant to be around. I just wish she would write another book.

p.b.,

Nice to meet you ... I love those wonderful Southern writers: Faulkner, O'Connor ... and New Orleans : I've enjoyed it in its best days ..

Slan, Pat.

I see you're a Sherlock Holmes fan, too. Have you read Caleb Carr's "The Italian Sectretary" yet? It's fun, very much in the style, and really made me remember how much fun I had reading Doyle as a kid.
P.S. I hated those suspenders. MS editor made me dress up for the shoot. She wanted me to look like a stockbroker.

My time also shows up wrong on the chatter post here. It is actually 6:21 PM. Let's see what comes up. Good to see another MMA member here.

an Alzheimer's book and a mystery series with the heroine called Hunter! I write about memory (www.memory-key.com -- I have a section on Alzheimer's at http://www.memory-key.com/Seniors/Alzheimers.htm; I see I have a link to your book) and I 'm writing what I hope will be a series about someone called Jaeger (German for Hunter). How's that for coincidence?

Sorry for the weird time stamp on my blogs. Ever since I installed the Mac 10.2.9 update, the dates on my computer are totally off. They look fine on the screen but when I post anything, they are off. Apple of course, refuses to address the problem.
