At the end of March, Kings River Life Magazine took part in Left Coast Crime 2012 Mining For Murder in Sacramento. We had the pleasure of meeting old friends and getting to know new ones. I was on a panel for my books, The Musical Mystery Panel, which was a lot of fun, we hung out in the hotel bar and showed off KRL to attendees, and did our first video author interviews, which was a lot of fun! The first two—one with Lee Goldberg and one with Victoria Heckman—have already been posted along with articles/reviews involving them, but here are several more for your enjoyment!
