Jeez - three fans in America now? I think five counts as critical mass ... You have a fascinating story there, by which I mean your life story - getting to hear after 40 years of deafness? That must be so incredible. Also, I love your sense of priorities ... "Avid photographer and mom." Well, I guess the kids can get themselves breakfast, but those images aren't going to shoot themselves ... Good to talk to you, and I hope you enjoy Bouchercon, I'd love to be getting over for it. Alaska is a place that has always loomed large in my imagination ... blame Jack London, of course. Cheers, Dec
Coming towards the end of winter now - it's been another desperately dry time - we're in a long term drought here. "Calendar" Spring here starts on 1st September, with Summer starting the 1st December - although the seasons vary a bit. Melbourne is down the bottom of the continent - over the water from Tasmania so we're in the lower / colder part of the country.
I try really really hard not to work out timezones - it makes my tiny brain hurt. But it's Thursday at nearly 2.00pm here and I just saw your comment posted - so it's yesterday where you are and tomorrow where I am, or today where I am and it's still yesterday where you are........ or something
Karen, I just posted a lengthy reply to your Forum discussion on outlining vs writing as you go, or into the mist as I call it. It was a compelling question--I had just come in from the beach and was planning to take a shower, but your post caught my eye and here I am at the laptop in my birthday suit.... Liz
Hi Karen: Thanks for the note and the wonderful comments on my books. A very kind welcome to crime space, indeed.
My newest A Perfect Grave come out in a few weeks, hope you might give it a try and let me know how you do with it,
