Thanks for being here Cathy!
Wow sounds like a really great book. I'll have to add it to the to be read list.ReplyDelete
I can tell you that Cathy is a marvelous writer, one who is deeply immersed in her chosen genre. It was my pleasure to attend a series of lectures she presented, covering the history of crime fiction. Her knowledge of the subject was incredible and not just limited to the literary realm. She spoke at length on television and film mystery/crime series and fielded every question thrown at her from the audience. As I was leaving her final session, I purchased one of her short story collections; honestly mostly out of curiosity, as I'm not typically a fan of cozy mysteries. Well, once I had read the first couple stories, I had become a fan! Perhaps I am not in the typical demographic for the type of novels she writes, but good writing exceeds those limitations, at least for me. I haven't gotten around to picking up this latest Cait Morgan mystery, but I must soon. It feels like I have a letter from an old friend waiting for me and I can't wait to catch-up!ReplyDelete
