Thank you for accepting my request! I'm excited that you write short stories and look forward to reading them.

Hi Kate--Would love a copy of your book.  I don't yet have a "device" but a pdf would be excellent.  Would you mind sending it to me at:

Check out We Can't Dance Together at A Twist of Noir!
(based on that Steely Dan song that's been stuck in your head since 1980)

So Kate, I finally get to meet you on the cruise, right?

How is the rewriting coming? I've dusted off a children's book I wrote in the 80's, Pirates of the Caribbean meets the Food Channe. Agent at the time told me kids weren't interested in pirates, they wanted astronauts. HA! Tell that to Jonny Depp!

You shoulda warned me about free tequila tasting and Cozumel men!
We got together later with the travel agent who pulled together the trip and pitched the idea of a mystery cruise. I came up with the title: Murder On the High Seas: A Cruise To Die For.
I heard today that the travel agent can pull it together by next fall. 7 days sailing the Mexican Riviera, leaving from Los Angeles, Carnival Splendour seems the probable choice, rates are approx. $350 inside cabin, $550 balcony.
You can see what we're talking about at
I'm suppose to get together with my cohorts in crime and come up with panels and programs so we know how many meeting rooms to reserve. Any ideas?
Is this too soon for anyone to plan? There wouldn't be any extra fees for the conference but we're going to try to negotiate with the ship to sell books. And there wouldn't be any silly rule about who's an author. In fact, I'd love to see small press publishers show up and show their wares!

Hi Kate! Thanks for the "friend" request, but I have to tell you I dont actually log onto Crimespace very often. Most of my "social networking" is on Facebook...are you on that too?
There are a lot of cool authors here... but me, I don't actually write much crime fiction or mysteries (except for my granddaughters).... I just review people who do1 :o)

Thanks, Kate, but you're a more accomplished short story writer than I am. But I'm thrilled to be mentioned. Thanks!

Hi Kate,
Thanks so much for ordering a copy of my latest book, To Hell in a Handbasket. Please let me know what you think of it after you read it.

I am just now beginning to be able to get out for my walks. I have more good 'excuses' not to than reasons. Like today. My equilibirum is off due to a really bad sinuse infection.
I am full of stories short and long. I probably have at least twenty 'handwritten' ones (pre-computer) and several that just need a final draft!
I deal with my grief by writing about the one I lost. I wanted to be a writer before I knew how to write. Tho I was the only one who could read it, it told a story.

No...not the federal judge (I wish!); although that was my mother's dream. I've held dozens of jobs, but most of my work life was spent in commercial lighting sales, then healthcare (worked my way up to RN). I've also been a process server and, once or twice, a hired gun for a friend who needed to protect his, uh, 'crop'. Pretty much as far from the law as possible. But you are a inspiration to me, and a fine writer, as well as a warm and supportive member of SMFS.
