edited by Charlaine Harris. A freebie from Bouchercon this past Fall.
I was invited to a librarian breakfast where Harris was the speaker. There were plenty of her fans there, and also fans of the television program. At one point she spoke about how, at times, there was something she did not like or agree with in the television program but she would then look at her last royalty check and feel better. I drank A LOT of coffee at that breakfast.Catch Me
by Lisa Gardner. I wish there were a way to show my extreme sarcasm when I think, "Oh, there is an original title."Left for Dead
