Is April gonna be an exciting month, or what?   Well, it will be for some - and for others not quite the same.  Yes, yes…I know the Edgar winners won’t be announced until May 1st - but we’ve got the Gumshoe Award winners due on April 21st - and the nominees for ITW’s Thriller Award are out. 

The lists are a bit lengthy, but stick around for one hell of a fabulous interview with the one and only LEE CHILD.  I spent much time pondering Lee’s introduction.  I mean, the guy has been written up a zillion times, right?  What more could I add?  Well, maybe that I’d wished he’d been pegged as the new James Bond instead of Daniel Craig.  Don’t get me wrong - Craig is okay, but to me he just doesn’t have that elusive sang-froid (as in tres cool), or the same elegant stance, or the low-key, but very sexy joie de vivre that oozes from Lee.  And darlings, no one…I mean no one can smoke a cigarette like Lee.  Even Jeremy Irons could take a lesson.  So what to do?  Well, when you get down aways, you’ll see…

AND NOW - THE NOMINEES…

THE GUMSHOE

PERRI O’SHAUGHNESSY - another marvelous sister team - Mary and Pamela - have thirteen books under their respective belts - hit the NYT list - and hoards of fans breathlessly waiting for the next - SHOW NO FEAR - out this fall.  Now that’s sisterly love when you can collaborate on that many books and be best friends as well!

P.J. TRACY - This time we have a mother & daughter team!  P.J. and Tracy Lambrecht hit the ground running with their first book, MONKEEWRENCH - by nabbing the Anthony, Barry and Gumshoe awards!  Two more followed with great acclaim - and their next - tenatively titled DISCONNECTED - will be out this fall.Aren’t these dynamic duo’s fantastic?  Just goes to show - the family that writes together… Hmmm, I’ll have to think about that.  In the meantime, ladies - thanks so much for hours of intrigue, all those tense moments - terrific plots, and simply great characters.  You will all always be on my TBR pile…and not just because you’re all terrific writers - but because you’re also great people.

GENT’S I LIKE TO DRINK WITH…

Due to number of e-mails accusing me of copping out by not divulging who my favorite bar mates are - I decided to fess up.  I must admit I was being rather secretive - and, I guess - just plain stingy - and maybe just a little evil.  So - here they are…the-kings-of-hollywood-slim-aarons.jpg

Ha!  Did you really think I’d tell you?
