Thanks for the friend invite! In all honesty, can't think of any one author I follow as far as the cozies I've been reading, I wander into the "cozy" section of the bookstore and pick and choose. Been getting into a few supernatural mysteries, there's one...Juliet Blackwell, she writes the "Haunted Home Renovation" series which is fun and there was one I loved by Mary Stanton, the Angels series, but she stopped writing those. :/ I've discovered I enjoy cozies more because too many of the modern "mysteries" come out more like police procedurals. I like the Ellery Queen way of solving mysteries, as far as a reader goes, give me simple clues I have to look for, don't hit me with DNA or anything like that.
Nice to meet you in print.
If you have any anecdotes from people about encounters with officials involving Personal Electronic Devices, I collect these.
Hope to read more from you soon.

Back to work.
I'm sorry to hear of your wife's passing, but delighted to hear that you remain in the book business. I recall you used to specialise in crime fiction, and wonder if you stock any new titles?
My crime debut, Yin Yang Tattoo, is published by Sandstone Press. I am encountering the usual difficulties in seeing the book placed in real bricks-and-mortar bookstores, never mind that it has received decent reviews in the UK and in Korea, where it is set. If you do stock new books, I would love to put you in touch with Sandstone. Please feel free to contact me at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks for the request. Sounds like you've got the perfect job.
I'm not usually so forward, but this week the Flash Fiction Offensive have put one of my short stories on their site http://theflashfictionoffensive.blogspot.com it's only 600 words long, I wondered if you fancied taking a look?
