About Me:
Edgar Award winner and two-time Anthony Award nominee, I write mystery fiction, true crime, Tie-Ins for movies/TV, and make myself a general media nuisance.

Books And Authors I Like:
My nephews Lee and Tod Goldberg also write books, so they must be on the list.
Leslie Charteris, creator of THE SAINT -- anything he wrote is fine with me.

Oh, I forgot to share the good news!

I had posted on here about my brother fighting pancreatic cancer. Guess what? He beat it! No kidding. Amazing, I know, but he did. Thought I would share that.

Okay...ignore my request to be a friend. I think you sent one first and I clicked the wrong button in response.
Etherspace is hell, like a constant party but no alcohol to smooth over stupid blunders. (Or at least make you forget them.)
So...I'm impressed. An Edgar. Woohoo.
I'm a newbie with a long way to crawl.

That's quite a family of writers, Burl. Think creativity and language abilities are in the genes?
