I'm new here. A young lady by the name of Krystal Waters invited me to crimespace. I write poetry, mostly freestyle and what ever comes to mind at the moment of where and what ever I'm doing. I love to write. I don't know what I would if they too the pen and note book away from all of us.
Anyway, making my rounds here and there. Stop by when you can Tasha Alexander and all your friends.
I work in a national corporate-chainstore book outlet called Waterstones (my shop was formerly Books Etc) but I've not come across any of your works before. Once I get the new stock in I'll have a rummage through your back catalogue!
And I did! Also compared notes with another MPM fan friend and she loved it too.
Have you read Diana Killian's Poetic Justice series? There is more than a touch of Vicky in that heroine too. I am really glad that MPM has had an influence on other authors - I love her books and a new and fresh twist on the style is wonderful. Your book is excellent. Now get off here and write another one real fast (I am a bossy mother so get lots of practice telling people what to do - at which point most of them do exactly as they want anyway).
Am about mid-way through A Poisoned Season and very much enjoying it. I know you were on the Amelia Peabody lists so am guessing you read Elizabeth Peters -- hopefully you will not object to me feeling that Emily is a bit of a cross between Amelia and Vicky. I like her very much and find her exploits highly entertaining. Love Colin (but then since my husband is also a Colin that is almost a given just from the name) and keep seeing Colin Firth in that role. I would like to throttle her mother though. Anyway -- well done (so far anyway) yet again.
