Full-time author

Just a quick update. On Christmas Eve I walked away from my job to become a full-time author. I've got plenty of writing gas in the tank, so look out for lots of new Jack Lisbon adventures, perhaps another in the Russian Detective series, and the conclusion to the Gary Braswell series.
Wish me luck!

Blair and 4 other people liked Catherine's review of The Maltese Falcon:

I thought it time I read one of the much-touted noir classics. Wow, was this a let down. For such a short book there wasn't a hell of a lot going on. Perhaps the film with Bogart is better. ...more
