Home is the Sailor

Or the writer, I guess.  I got back late yesterday from the Indianapolis Bouchercon.  It was a great chance to reconnect with old friends–especially Liza Cody, from London & Bath, who

is showing off Michael Lewin‘s tour of Indianapolis.

MWA-Midwest organized breakfast with a group of readers and writers, for which I thank, especially, Michael Black, Michael Dymmoch and Jeanne Dams.

Other highlights: catching up with old Chicago friend Andrea Smith–who, sadly in her years in Indianapolis has become a Colts fan–SCI members photo web.JPG

the Private Eye Writers annual dinner, at the Slipper Noodle, catching up with old friends Peter Lovesey, John Lutz and Sue Grafton on Michael Connelly’s Poe panel, and the bittersweet memory of Don Sandstrom, whose life I miss always, but especially when I’m in Indianapolis.

  • Glad to have you home safe and sound! Looks like you had a great time!

    I just have read a Swedish crime novel, “Millenium”. “The girl strikes back” is the essence of this world-wide bestseller, I think. In this book there are tough girls and boys who support them. And the most important male figure, a journalist who loves reading crime novels, is reading SARAH PARETSKY in the book 1 chapter 21. Wonderful novel, have you read it?

  • Take it from me, Swedes like Sara’s books.

  • This Swede likes them, that’s for sure!
