  4. I always mention "The Cabot Cove Effect" when I talk about my books. You wouldn't want to live in Blacklin County, which has more murders per capita than anywhere in the world.

  11. The Janet Evanovich is a future read for me. I have yet to pick it up but it's on my list. Probably when I am in the mood for something light and funny.
