Yeah, the exchange rate was pretty bad when we were over there.
You bio is very impressive. I can only hope to garner a very small amount of the achievements that you have. I got a start on writing late in life. (It was "okay, I'm retired, bored and what can I do now.") My youth was spent busily rearing a husband and two children. I didn't get career-oriented until my early forties, when I became a Deputy Sheriff (Of course, I was still fit-as-a-fiddle and had energy to burn)
Thanks for inviting me to be your Crimespace friend. I love London. It is such a fascinating city. And Big! So much to see and do. The flora in the Summertime is awesome. I want to go back one of these days. I love watching the British mystery series on American television. Especially Inspector Lynnly, the 8th Earl of Aston. (His television personna)
Little Charlie is one of the many affections that I discovered running Blues & Jazz clubs in Atlanta. I've written for years, but started a Romance Suspense story last year which is my first serious project. Any advice for a rookie.
