Thanks for looking me up! The books are all standalones, so it doesn't matter where you start -- but I usually recommend that people begin with PARANOIA or KILLER INSTINCT. Hope you enjoy them!

Hmm, naja, das ist so ein Studiengang, mit dem man eigentlich recht viel machen kann später. Bibliothek ist eine Möglichkeit, aber auch in nem Verlag oder sonstigen Medien, Erwachsenenbildung etc.
So, jetzt muss ich aber los, muss morgen früh raus *Augenroll*

Ich schau doch eh nur bei meinen Eltern fern... Tatort nur selten, aber House ist genial und CSI auch! :-)

Ich studiere AVL (Allgem. & Vergl. Literaturwissenschaft), Vergl. Religionswissenschaft und Romanistik (Schwerpunkt: Französisch).

Viele Grüße zurück!
Klar hab ich Lieblingsautoren, aber meistens sprengt die Anzahl einfach den Platz, den man für solche Angaben hat ;-)
Ein klassisches Beispiel wäre wohl Dame Agatha, aber sonst: Lee Harris, Laura Childs, Jeffery Deaver, Rhys Bowen, Elizabeth Peters, Harlan Coben, Shakespeare, Tess Gerritsen und und und ;-)
Du hast da übrigens ein paar tolle Serien angegeben :-)
LG, Kathrin

That's too bad about the girl at the bus stop. Unfortunately random shootings of innocents are not uncommon here. When asked, most shooters have little or no idea, or swear they were upholding some obscure code of "honnor." Sad.

We saw some of the Bavarian Alps last summer. Cold even then. I can imagine now...

Thanks for your invite...I see that Arturo Perez-Reverte is on your list of favorite authors. I forgot about him...I just read Purity by Blood, and it was great.

Hi! To answer your question, YES, my books are published in German by Rowohlt and should be easy to find. Thanks for asking!

Hi Jur. Thanks for the friend invite. I'm working on a video to promote the release of my e-book. I'll put it on my blog when I have it finished and share it with my friends here. Keep reading! Smiles, BA

Hi Jur,
It's great to meet new people who shared a love of reading. Especially those who enjoy the same genre.
Welcome!

Hi Jur, normally people overseas can order DYING TO BE THIN from an online vendor such as Amazon. But I'm actually going to ask someone whether it's available in bookstores anywhere outside the US. As the author, I should really know these things, lol! In addition to writing the Fat City Mysteries, I'm also working on a very dark thriller. Hopefully that one will be published someday, as well.

Hi Jan! Thanks for your comments! In terms of widening a story, I think what is meant is widening the scope of the story. That is, make its world bigger, the stakes higher, the tension greater. For you as a reader, I think that would have the net effect of making the book a more exciting and thrilling read. And you're absolutely right that the discussion of "widening" is technical, in the sense that it is a technique that authors can employ to create a certain effect in a book.With any luck, the reader is never aware of all these technical machinations behind the curtain--all they see is the Magnificent Oz!
