On the road so long...

Just finished a great week with Michael Wiley, author of A BAD NIGHT"S SLEEP among other fine books. Together we went to Murder by the Book in Houston, The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, and Murder by the Book in Denver. Fun times. Also got to meet up with Duane Swierczynski (FUN AND GAMES) and Harry Dolan (VERY BAD MEN). Thanks to all the store owners who made this possible.

Many thanks to the International Thriller Writers. For starters, today they published my guest blog about heroes and myth structure. They've also nominated DRINK THE TEA for Best First Novel.
