Yes, we started early and ate some mochi this morning. Have a wonderful time in Paris! I'm so envious. Will you be doing any Aimee tours anytime soon? I've never gone to Paris and when I do go, I certainly don't want to do the stereotypical touristy thing.

Happy Year of the Rat, Cara!

Thanks Cara,

Happy New Year back! We're in Manhattan, having returned from Maine a few days before Xmas. We gave up on the ice and snow. I was remembering with envy how mild the winters are in Umbria when I received an email from a friend who lives above Assisi. She writes that they have 17 inches of snow. A few inches less than Downeast Maine but only a few. We'll return to Maine on May 1, and to Italy--not sure when, but I hope before the end of summer.

Have a wonderful year with great sales. Grace

Sure. But I'm not sure if the book is getting translated. I think so eventually, but ... Anyway. Remember norwegian Roy Jacobsen. he normally writes literary novels, but If you somewhere down the road see there is a book by him being tagged a thriller or a crime novel, pick it up. It's a sure winner. - Else.... Karin Fossum, and old favourite and with several books in english, but she can bore me sometimes. - The swedes have two greats, John Ajvide Lindqvist, who plays with the horrorgenre, but is quite literary. The biggest name by far is Stieg Larsson. Dont know if they are translated yet but they will be, guaranteed. The man wrote 3 books and then died before the first one was published. All of them very good.

Cara,
It's Peg, but I answer to Pat as well. When I taught there was a teacher who looked a lot like me named Pat, and we got used to answering for each other!

Lyn, that's wonderful. With all the devastation in New Orleans, it's libraries that are forgotten but not any more thanks to you. I'll go to your blog...thanks for letting me, and I hope, lots of others know.

Michael, nice to hear from you! I missed out on Bcon in Alaska, too but am signed up for Denver LCC and will see you and your wife there...let's plan on it.

Cara; Greetings: Just to let you know that my New Orleans noir mystery, The

I have posted Chapter I on my blog www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com. Please read and if you like it, help rebuild a library for NOLA. Thank you Lyn LeJeune
