Quote of the Month

There were three cops I talked to. One was a local plainclothesman, a comic relief clown who chewed cut plug. One was from the county District Attorney's office, a ferret with delusions of grandeur. And the third was a State CID, an ice-grey man with no tear ducts.

Introduction to my life as a crime editor

This is an introductory post starting this blog. I love the idea of CrimeSpace, of having an international, blog-based community to share our thoughts and love for crime fiction. Thus I joined.

It's great to have someone of your caliber in CrimeSpace. I had a couple of historical articles published in Germany when Tom Jeier was editor of I-wish-I-could-remember the magazine name. :-)

Welcome Lisa. I was an Army house husband in Germany and taught a fifth grade class of German children in Wertheim in the 80's. It was a great experience. My son is stationed there now and plans on doing as many years there as they'll let him.

Welcome! I visited Berlin for the first time last summer. What a fascinating place.

Lovely to see a translator join in - I'm very partial to translators without whom I wouldn't be reading anywhere near the range of books that I love :)

Hope you enjoy Crimespace.

Welcome, Lisa. Nice to see you here. My debut thriller, Switch, will be introduced to international publishers by Bantam UK at the London Book Fair in April. Looking forward to it.
