Good news: My collection of first edition signed crime and mystery hardcovers inspired me to finish my own – SACRIFICE FLY (Minotaur Books, Oct. 2012). Bad news: My debut took so long to write that my custom-built cabinet got so stuffed that there is no room for my own. Good news: My second (CROOKED NUMBERS, Minotaur Books, out 10/15/13) and third (DEAD RED) came out so quickly that if I keep this up, I may someday be able to build another cabinet!
