B.V. Zoë wrote: "Hi BV. Thanks so much for Friending me here. How's the writing going with you?" Hey, Zoë! Writing is going a bit better. My father's health started declining in the fall leading to a stint in home hospice and his death in February. It took awhile for me to ease back into things, but writing is good therapy.

I enjoy your Murderati posts and the Charlie Fox series, and maybe someday soon you can take some "Author R&R" on my In Reference to Murder blog. Authors offer their take on the research and references they use in their writing. (see http://tinyurl.com/b2vyavy). If you ever have time in your busy schedule, would love to have you drop by! Just let me know your availability at bv@bvlawson.com.
