Lurking in Literature

Not much to say today--I am far too busy enjoying the creative mind of this lovely woman. I'm reading Harry Potter 7 to my sons, as I did the previous six, and the oral recitation makes it a bit more of a slow-going process, but BOY is it exciting! What a wonderful tale, and how sorry I will be when it's over.

Harry's not officially a mystery, I suppose, and yet I've rarely encountered such beautifully crafted suspense. We mystery writers can all take a lesson from JKR: those delightful little details help to build the suspense.

Okay, back to it!
