My favorite Elmore Leonard novel is Cuba Libre. What's yours?

I don't really to 'talks' per se on my podcasts. Basically I do audio (and sometimes video) versions of my short stories. Check it out:

Great to hear from another scribe who once called The big Easy home. Also I envy your ability to rope your musical skills into marketing for your writing. So far my only success at marrying the two has been in strumming my guitar as background on my audio podcasts.

Hi, Susan. My protagonists are amateur sleuths. Not "cozy," definitely, but not noir, either. Some humor and a great deal of wondering about the curve balls life throws at you.

We do. But I don't have the noir jacket and hat!! ;) Though you have a good city to do noir in.

Thanks for prompting me about posting my novel somewhere. I will put the first three chaps on my website and see what the response is. Best, Robin

Regarding Kubrick – last month I went to see 2001 at the Royal Festival Hall with the LSO and choir doing the music. Absolutely amazing. And I will certainly check out Renzi. Regards, Robin

Hi Susan -- Thanks for accepting the invite (and for the Coben recommendation). My wife has family from New Iberia (Robicheaux country), and New Orleans is one of my favorite places. Reece

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

I'm happy to have you as a friend as well, Susan. By the way, I enjoy anything Elmore Leonard writes. If you'd like to read my interview with him, it's on my webpage at http://jeanhenrymead.com/elmore_leonard_interview.htm.
Best of luck with your mini MA tour in August. I remember the East Coast humidity when I lived in Delaware for a couple of years. They still had the whipping post in the town square at that time. :-) Delete Comment

Oops, forgot to say: Go Celtics! Beat L.A.!

Thanks, Jean. Just got back to New Orleans from Boston, trying to catch up on various. From your comment, may I assume you've been to New Orleans? I moved here from Boston in 2001. Love the food, ambiance, F.Q., music and writing scene. Not wild about the hurricanes.

I love the noir trenchcoat and hat as well as New Orleans. We share some of the same favorite authors and I was fortunate to interview Elmore "Dutch" Leonard for my book, Maverick Writers.

I haven't read his latest, and I didn't finish reading Dead Watch, which I think is a standalone. I do like Sanford's Kidd series though. I'll get back to you on Hitchens' book.

Hi Susan
I'm a John Sanford and Dexter fan too. What did you think of God Is Not Great? Is it worth reading?

Okay, I confess that I'm a huge NBA basketball fan, and I fear that may be very torn as the Finals progress. I'm a Boston transplant to New Orleans, so I'm rooting for the Hornets right now ... but also for the Celtics. If it should come to pass that they meet up on the final round, well ... I don't know what I'll do. Any suggestions?

I love jazz, but I don't improvise .. tho I've played a few big band gigs in my day (and also the Ringling Bros circus!). I was classically trained, but you get to play a bit of everything when you're a freelancer. (You can hear samples of my CD on my website).

I'm a big fan of John Hicks, so sad he died so young. Current trumpet favs are Claudio Rodidi (a longtime friend), Ingrid Jensen, and Terrance Blanchard.

Haven't been to Mosca's, but I've heard of it. Come on down! The Fr. Q. and other tourist areas are pretty much back in business, but there's still a lot of devastation and empty blighted homes in a lot of areas. I'm going to a Hornets game tomorrow night with some friends, am psyched for it.
