Deb Sharp's Book Sells Like Hotcakes
I went to Florida mystery writer Deb Sharp's Chicago-area signing tonight, thinking to offer her a little co-authorly support. Luckily, she didn't need it. I had to elbow my way up to her little table, and I didn't stay long, fearful that I'd block the endless line. I should be so lucky, Deb. :)
Deb's successful series, which started with MAMA DOES TIME, now continues with MAMA RIDES SHOTGUN. I'm looking forward to reading more about Mama's adventures in Florida, which inspired the TODAY show's Hoda Kotb to say that "Deb Sharp is the next Edna Buchanan!"
Deb is so used to hot Florida summers that she said she had to wear a shawl here in cool Chicago. I told her I like the shawl weather better!
And now, on to reading mysteries . . . .
