May 15, 2012

On April 18, I flew to St. Louis, beginning what would be my most amazing twelve days ever, and I've done a guest blog over at Jungle Reds about it (thanks to the Jungle Reds writers for having me, and a particular huge thank you to Julia Spencer-Fleming). It starts out ...



I live on a dirt road in southern
Vermont—excitement is when a fox tunnels into my
yard and I try to referee a chase between dog and fox as they lap the yard, me

Me, in ponytail mode post-event

About a million years ago (okay, really just over a week ago) I attended an insanely wonderful event called Booktopia, a weekend retreat for readers and authors, organized and hosted by the folks who run the beloved Books on the Nightstand podcast, Ann Kingman and Michael Kindness. Over at their website, you can hear my talk at the Celebration of Authors event that closed out the event. And you can also hear my new pal, the inimitable, delig...

I'm more than delighted to announce that I won the Agatha Award for best first novel on Saturday night at the Malice Domestic conference in Bethesda, Maryland - here's a list of all the nominations and winners (I'm still on the road, so please forgive the short post.)

And I'm posting via my just-acquired iPad before I leave town ... But I am extraordinarily grateful to have just won the 2012 Mary Higgins Clark award for my first novel, LEARNING TO SWIM. Can't at the moment figure out how to post a photo from here, but there's one over at the Crimespree mag blog - http://crimespreemag.com/blog/2012/04....[image error]

Just a few reasons I love St Louis and St. Louis County Library, which recently hosted Reed Farrel Coleman, Duane Swierczynski, Frank Bill, and me at their annual Suspense Night:





What a lovely coincidence that three of my high school classmates from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, live in St. Louis - and all came out for this event! L-R, Linda Groppe Eissenberg, Greg Edmondson (okay, we were in grade school together too), Joel Eissenberg (with whom I took my first-ever bike trip, back when no one to...

Apparently I'm discussing something very important with William Kent Krueger (and he seems to be listening with great forbearance) - this was at Mystery on Main Street in Brattleboro, Vermont, this past Saturday - part of the wonderful Great Mystery Bus Tour, with four Atria authors on an eight-day, twelve-bookstore tour by bus.

I'd just gotten back in town and barely made the event and didn't take a camera, but did decide to pull out my new p...
