Mavens of Mayhem— what a great name! Mavens of Mayhem at Mysteries on Main Street— even better. (Just try saying it ten times fast.) And what a great event it was.
Mavens of Mayhem is the name of the upstate New York Sisters in Crime chapter who very kindly invited me to come along and share informally in their panel and book signing at the delightful Mysteries on Main Street book store in historic Johnstown, New York.

A recent discussion thread on the DorothyL Listserve for mystery readers and writers has been to ask writers "How long will you keep writing?" My answer is: "As long as it's fun."

Delightful people, excellent speeches, a dance workshop with Stan, afternoon tea,... Read More
