Dana,
Not a Yupper, but my husband plays one during hunting season! We live south of the bridge about 45 miles. We also lived in Flint the first four years of our marriage while we were gettin' eddicated.
As far as the music thing goes, I can't seem to recover. I direct two different choirs, and I love every second of it!

Hi, Dana - late checking on my comments; I'm happy you found a line of mine quote-worthy for a review. Did you like Patriot Acts? Maybe I should wait for the review...

Thanks again, Dana. And for your good wishes. It's weird... you do everything you can in advance of a book coming out, then -- all of a sudden -- it's no longer under your control. You just have to wave goodbye and hope it finds its way into readers' hands. For a control freak like myself, it's discomforting...
Pass the wine, please.

Thanks for your comment, Dana. Did you know I grew up in DC?

Glad I'm not the only one who gets tired of that same-old same-old.... it's especially frustrating when it's a good writer trotting it out!

I left you a comment on your blog! Sounds like we're fellow travelers in terms of diet and exercise!

Thanks for your generous comment about "Blondes, Blondes, Blondes." There are a few of us who do Baltimore, but none better than Laura Lippman.

Hi, Dana -- Please forgive the long delay between your note to me and this reply. I'm in the middle of the edit on Bangkok book number two and it's eating me alive, since I'm also writing number three. Anyway, I'm happy you liked some of the material on my site and delighted that you enjoyed "A Nail Through the Heart." Could you please send me the URL where your review appears? And did you get your copy of the book from Morrow or from FSB Associates -- and it not, do you want me to make sure you're on their list for the next one?

This list is top heavy with hardboiled and noir fans, male and female, and there's not a damn thing wrong with that.

Welcome! I am newt, slithering from the shallow end of the gene pool, into the open ocean. Sharks are likely to eat me before the salt water kills me, but who wants a quiet life?
I am also a long time member of the MD Writers Association. If you aren't in a critique group, I am a member of "Novel Experience" where 3 of the members are published authors, and another has just finished her debut novel, and is starting her marketing.
Contact me if you want sit in on a few sessions!

Thanks for the nice words about "A Nail Through the Heart." Do you have twelve or thirteen hundred friends who'd like to buy it?

And Chandler is the daddy of us all. I don't know about other writers, but I'd be happy to do one page as good as any of his. (By the way, check out the blog "Raymond Chandler's Little-Bitty Piece of Paper" on my site. Go to http://www.timothyhallinan.com/blog/?m=200703
and scroll down past the entry about Shenzhen.

Thanks again,
