On May 29 KRL celebrates our 5th anniversary! One of the things we are doing to celebrate is to introduce a few of our staff writers to all of you! Some you have already gotten to know as they are also mystery authors and have been interviewed here–but many you have not, other than what you have learned through what they write for us. First off we are interviewing Tom Sims, who has been writing for us for a few years and has two columns-Strolling the Town and Healthy Eating in the Valley.
