Sorry my message bounced, no idea why. Thanks for the friend invite. Anybody who reads both Lethem and Crumley is OK with me, but Lono Waiwaiole clinched it. I just finished Wiley's Lament and I think the guy is brilliant.
James, like you list of books, especially Lankford, met him years ago in LA & a friend of Mike Connelly's. Spent too much time in LA and seeing what you are breathing ain't all it's made out to be. I'll take the sailing waters off Key West anyday!
Keep in touch.
Thanks! Boy, it looks like you read a LOT of books. That's great. I'm a "heavy reader", although my choices may be a bit lighter than your.s But don't you love Michael Connelly? Ever try Lisa Scottoline or Jodi Picoult? And I enjoy "Without a Trace" on TV, and of course, Law & Order.
Your manly weekend story is great. I too have a S&W 44 Mag. It kicks harder than a mule and really is not too much fun to shoot. But, you've got me thinking if I do things to feel manly. I don't necessarily think I do. I just do "guy" things with guy friends and I guess we end up doing the things that real guys do naturally. haha Thanks for the invite to be friends.
Hi James - how's tricks? Thanks for the welcome, I really appreciate it. Glad to see you're a Willeford and Pelecanos man ... both just blew me away the first time I read them, although for hugely different reasons ... anyway, I'm still finding my feet here at Crime Space, so once I'm wobbling around properly, I'll be back. Cheers, Dec
You seem to have the career a crime/mystery/suspense writer needs to have = ) Enjoyed your list of favs I'll have to check some of the new-to-me ones out. Thanks for the invite
Have a Great Weekend.
The interview went well. The reporter got all the facts right and did a nice job. I'd spent an hour with the photographer but they didn't run the pic. I was a bit disappointed, but then maybe that's best for the viewing public. :))
