Some of you may know me as the Editor of the Mystery Readers Journal, blogger at Mystery Fanfare and DyingforChocolate.com. As such you’ll assume, and you’d be right, that I’m a book collector. I have a passion for collecting ‘things’–books, to be sure, patriotic Americana embroideries, Oriental carpets, American folk art, and the more than occasional cat and dog. I love flea markets and garage sales, and the occasional dumpster. Don’t leave something by the road, because I’m bound to find it.

Mystery Readers Journal is a cross between a college course and a coffee date with your favorite author. What started out as a 4-page newsletter, back in the manual cut and paste days, has evolved into an 80 plus page quarterly magazine (both online and print) that covers the spectrum of the mystery genre.
