Easily My Best Murder Ever!

Outstanding event Saturday at Portland’s own Murder By The Book!

This is me. The very thin, very pale one. Nooo, the one on the right.

We drew a terrific house. It was standing room only, with people spilling out into the streets. Maybe they were spilling out onto the streets; maybe they were trying to escape before I gave a speech. It’s hard to tell.

Considering that it was the most beautiful day of the year so far in this city, garnering such a crowd is saying something!

Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and First Lady Nancy Hales dropped by – immensely grateful, both of you! – as did a wide array of family, friends, fans and cohorts.

The staff at Murder By The Book are just a trip to the moon on gossamer wings. They’ve been supportive when I was successful, and supportive when I wasn’t successful. They are gems. Thank you!

All in all, it was a great kickoff for the new novel!

    I have been reading novels for over 50 years. I can honestly say that “Crashers” was absolutely the best written, word for word, I have ever read. Well done. Will eagerly look to read next novel.
