Today's the day I try to make my messy office camera ready! A three-person film crew from Open Road Media will arrive this week to spend two whole days here interviewing me about my work and following me around in my native habitat. It's for a video to promote the upcoming e-publication of my Hoagy series by mysteriouspress.com. They are terrific people and I am super excited that's it happening. But a teeny tiny part of me is still convinced that somehow I'm being punked.
Greetings! I'm the Edgar Award-winning author of the Hoagy & Lulu mysteries. I was once called "the wittiest mystery writer in America" by the Pittsburgh Press. But everyone knows that people who live in Pittsburgh have no sense of humor. Lately, I've been writing the Berger-Mitry mysteries, which take place in the fictional historic New England village of Dorset, Connecticut -- a village that bears a striking resemblance to the real life village of Old Lyme, Connecticut, where I happen to live. My newest, The Blood Red Indian Summer, is the eighth in the series. I blog about all sorts of things. My writing. Other people's writing. The strange people I encounter in Dorset...I mean Old Lyme. Movies, TV, my girlfriend Diana, our cat, Freddie, our antique carriage house, yoga and, let's see, did I mention Freddie? Being a cat, he'll be offended if I don't mention him twice.
