I'm just back from Baltimore - home of The Wire and Hairspray - and not to mention some of the greatest mystery/crime/thriller writers on the planet. At least it was over the past weekend. The Bouchercon is probably the USA's finest crime/mystery convention and it was packed to overflowing in the Baltimore Sheraton with some top guys and gals from the genre. Notable authors attending were Lawrence Block, Laura Lipmann, Lee Child, Mark Billingham, Val MacDermid, John Connolly, Harlan Coben etc, but I wanted to extend a big thanks and hello to all the other greats I met over the weekend. Special hello's to Adrian Magson, Kenneth La Duke and Stan, Deborah Crombie, Sophie Hannah, all of you were especially welcoming. Bigger better blog to follow once I shake the cobwebs of 27 hours travel out of the ol' grey cells.
keep on keeping on folks
