L.J.M. Owen Hi Kathy. Thank you for accepting my friend request, it made my day. Your career is one of my main sources of inspiration. Seeing you translate decades of hard work in forensic anthropology into a successful literary career has helped me push through many late nights to keep writing.

I hope you enjoy Bouchercon this week. An acquaintance of mine is going this year - I hope to go one day too.

Thank you again!

L.J.

W. Tinkanesh Thank you for accepting my friend request. I've enjoyed reading most of the Brennan books (I think I stopped in the middle of 'The Devil's Bones', I wasn't keen in the style you chose to write this volume). I got to watch two seasons of the TV series 'Bones' and especially like the characters of Tempe and her best friend. Recently, I got back to your writings when I picked up a copy of 'Virals'. Ah! I wish this book had been around when I was a teenager! I'll get around to read the next installment of this series. However I first need/want to read the almost 200 books I have at home as paperbacks or on my kindle...... Yes, I am an avid reader. Thank you for writing such great books. You are one of my favourite crime writers (the other one is Patricia Cornwell).
