Hi Beth: Thanks for the "invite"! Nice to meet you...even if it is only in cyberspace. On second thought, maybe that's better. If my wife ever caught me hanging around anywhere else with someone as attractive as you, she'd kill me. :)
Hey Beth..Good to have you as a friend, thanks for the invite. Althought I hate you (you live where I want to be!!!!) Actually, I'm just jealous and envious...Look forward to seeing you around the forums. Sounds like we write alike! What's that line about great minds?????? ;o)
Just a note to introduce myself as yet another former resident of Hampton. Born in Newport News, I grew up in Hampton during the 1950s and early 1960s, and graduated from Hampton High in 1969. My family's home was off North King Street near the beloved Smitty's, which apparently is still in business. Recently I was saddened to learn that Bill's Barbecue is no more; but at least the whale sign and some of the interior booths were preserved, I understand, at a local museum. One might say my hometown had three of the world's great restaurants: Bill's, Smitty's, and Fuller's. I'm also well acquainted with the donut shop at Willow Oaks Mall. Haven't been back to Hampton Roads for many years; I'm now working with a publishing company in the ESL business in Korea. Online, I try to keep up with changes in the community. Coliseum Mall was demolished a couple of years ago to make way for some new development. Please let me know how things are going in Colorado.
Thanks Beth although I love reading the suspense type books I have trouble writing them. ALl the stories I write have to have humour. I have sort of been told I write like janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes.
Hey! I've heard about "To Hell in a Handbasket" and it sounds like a fun book! I've heard that expression used all of my life and it's about time it made print. :-) It's nice meeting you and I hope you find your way over to SoCal sometime soon and hang out with us LA Sisters in Crime. Thanks for the invite!
Surprisingly enough, I don't get any real media attention. I think THE SEX CLUB makes them nervous about reader/caller backlash. The local paper covered my novel in a roundup story, but that was it. I have been on my own entirely to market this book.
