Pat Tim,

Good memories of our ITW panel in New York 3 years ago (how time flies). I don't think I told you this; I read Stealing the Dragon shortly after that and I thought it was superb!

My very best to you,
Pat.

Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Tim and thanks for the add. I'm so impressed with Stealing the Dragon being adapted for a movie! Big congrats! If you have time, I'd love for you to visit my web site, jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it.

Beth Hi Tim,
I'm always happy to befriend a fellow author, esp. in my genre, mystery/suspense. I have some friends published by Poisoned Pen, Ann Parker and Debby Atkinson among them. PP seems to be a great publisher.
