Hello all,

Proud Daddy

Way more important than any of my writing is the wonderful little girl my daughter is turning into (and really has always been) I take way too many pictures of her and I got a few funny ones today that I thought other crime writers might enjoy.

Thanks, Eric, for your comments on my story. Should you be worried? How do you think I feel--that character came out of my mind! Joyce

Eric, Thanks for letting us know about your story on Thuglit. I"ll head over there and check it out. Been busy working on several pieces and have been neglecting my reading. Not a good thing. Going to read your story NOW!

Thanks, I really enjoyed your story "Partners." It's rare that any genre delves into the logistics and friction between personalities in life. Unfortunately I have to decline your generous offer, as I am not much essayist and believe me when I say that there is nothing more in life that I would want to write about, than noir.

That must be a serious thrill to work with Eddie, nobody that I know this side of Foster Hirsch and Woody Haut have done more to preserve noir and keep it in the public conscious.

Thanks for the invite and it is wonderful to see someone else that is a fan of Eddie Muller!

Couldn't 'scoff' at that story. Let me tell you something. I thought about who wrote it before I read it and after, so I could leave a comment. But, never once while I was reading it, did the gender of the writer cross my mind. You know, that's how it should be, and that's how it was with your story, which is why I'm happy to say again that it was very well done! Joyce
