Dusty corners of the mind intrigue me.

I'm an armchair explorer; book in one hand, mug of tea in the other.

I guess the answer depends on how we define naughty. If we're talking about the darkness of characters like Michael Sykora and his partner Sean Riley, then no, I'm definitely nowhere near that kind of naughty. Sean has no issues with torturing someone to get information he needs. I'm squeamish about killing a spider - and I truly despise spiders. (They're the embodiment of evil!) (less)

“What's your name?" Jesse asked.
"Go to hell," the man muttered.
"Interesting name. Your mother must have been thrilled with your birth.”

“No, when I was a kid I had big plans.” A hint of playfulness crept into Jesse’s eyes. “I was going to be the next Superman. But my sisters got sick of me stealing their tights and I could never figure the damn things out anyway.”

Hi Darcia,

Thank you so much for joining friends with me on goodreads. I wondered if you had a moment if you might like to read my new exciting crime thriller? It would be a great honor.

Thanks,
Sian

Great to hear that things are going well for you! I have been *slightly* overwhelmed with life. Sorry I haven't gotten to your book. I will attempt better organizational skills so I can read it soon!

Michael Hope things are going well. I've gotten a busy schedule for the next few weeks, as baseball season began, the interest in "Three Strikes and You're Dead," has zoomed up. But to be sure, my wife's book club assured me that you don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy the book.
I like seeing it on your "to read' list and look forward to your review.
Sincerely, Mike

I'm happy to include you as a friend, Andrea! And I'm honored you found E&P a memorable read! Like you, I also tend to forget books soon after reading them. I like to blame it on the number of books I read, rather than the black hole in my memory! Now and then I read one that sticks with me long after I've read the last page, and I'm humbled you feel that way about one of mine.


Grammar*Kitten Thank you for accepting my friend request - So far I have only read Enemies and Playmates but it was one of my most memorable 2012 reads (mainly because I tend to forget books as soon as I've read them, unless prompted; E&P I can actually remember of my own accord!). I'm really looking forward to reading more of your work and seeing from your reviews what kind of books you enjoy too!

Just saw our friend 'Sue' today and she kindly lent me your book "Emenies and Playmates" and am so looking forwarding to reading it! You just blow me away with your stories and I so love it when I win your books! (Haven't been lucky yet, but my fingers are crossed!) I tried for 'Into the Light" to no avail and 'The First Kill". Just wanted you to know that I'm still your most loyal fan. Have a great day. Carol
