So wonderful to see you at KillerNashville, Mary! The conference was great and meeting you made it even more satisfying. My manuscript has been requested by an agent as a result of being there. Keep your fingers crossed. (And, am loving Thistle & Twigg. I'll never look at little old ladies the same way again.)
Jane Haddam was at the front of the line with Sue Grafton on the 'themed' mystery series concept.
Janes all revolve around holidays. She is a very smart lady, as a stroll through her website will affirm. And funny-in a sharp, and sometimes bitter way.
My library doesn't believe that Duane wrote anything else. Grrrrr.
Yes, I rtead Virgin of the Small Plains earlier this year.
I've long been a Pickard fan- singe the Jenny Cain days back in the 80's. I read her series and Janes Haddam's Demarkian series at the same time.Wonderful writers, both.
Hi Mary, what a lot of wonderful books you've written! I downloaded all the book covers for the B'con publication and kept smiling as I went - knowing I've got some great reading ahead of me! Good for you! You're living the life and doesn't sound like 40-60 hours a week are spent living it in someone else's office like I do!
I agree that Baby Jane was one scary movie and Davis and Crawford played their roles to perfection. I am a big fan of Bette Davis, in particular. Aside from her movies as a young woman, she was great in her later years in the witchcraft miniseries, The Dark Secret of Harvest Home.
I shall look for you and your husband. You will enjoy the area. Was just down in Nashville a couple of weeks ago with my daughter. We had a wonderful time. And I love to hear about women who shoot all sorts of rifles. lol.
Thistle and Twig a must read!
