Last December at Kate's Mystery Bookstore's holiday party, I found a kindred spirit with Dave Kanell, and we ended up spending a good chunk of the evening discussing crime fiction. Dave's a fan of the genre, very well-read, and very passionate about crime novels. Dave, with his wife Beth, also runs Kingdom Books in Waterford, Vermont. Since Kate's holiday party, Dave and I have traded numerous emails, and he has read my books and has become a strong supporter, which I am very grateful for. I'll be at Kingdom Books on June 25th where I'll reading and talking about Small Crimes and Pariah. It should be fun evening, and it's one I'm looking forward to.
You can read more about it, as well as Beth's thoughts on Small Crimes, on Kingdom Books blog.
