Favorite genres are traditional mystery, police procedurals, espionage, Eurocrime, literary fiction and nonfiction history, especially WW2 and Cold War. I write about crime fiction at Read Me Deadly (www.readmedeadly.com)
My BMRFF (my best mystery-reading friend forever) and I are trying to build a large, active crime fiction readers' discussion group, using bookandreader.com. The site uses the excellent forum software Xenforo, which allows for a multi-threaded discussion, inserted images and videos, all that good stuff.
If you're interested in becoming part of this community, we'd love to have you join us here:
I just realized I should clarify a couple of things. On Murder, We Schmoozed, I'm using my Amazon name, which is Maine Colonial. Also, this is a long-running discussion forum; we're overhauling it and trying to build its membership.
