I know. Maybe we'd best forget 2016. But I'm not going to talk about any other subject but my favorite one: Me! 

I began the year with Mystery on the Menu at the fabulous Cerritos Library. Look, I'm telling you, if you haven't been to this library you are missing out. Check out the giant aquariam wall or the children's section. 

In February we released THE SILENCE OF STONES, Crispin's 8th novel!
