If you want to get a book autographed or personalized to that special someone (even if that special someone is you) go to my bookshop. Used the code HOLIDAY10 to get a 10% discount.

Alternatively, I can mail out a bookplate or sign ebooks via Authorgraph.com. Just email me with your requests and I’ll do my best to make it happen. All the details are on the bookshop.

The New Year marks twenty years since my first published work, which was a short story in a science fiction magazine.  I thought I would mark this personal landmark moment with some stats:

  • More than 20 books published.
  • Had my work translated into 10 languages.
  • Almost 2 million books sold.
  • Published by 20 publishers.
  • Over 100 short stories and articles published. 
  • A USA TODAY and a BILD (in Germany) bestseller.
  • Anthony Award winner & a Crime Writers’ Association Dagger Award nominee.
  • Mentioned by Den of Geek, Buzzfeed & Writer’s Digest.
  • Oddest publication: On the side of a coffee can.
  • Oddest book moment: The Queen talking to my dad about my books.
  • Proudest moment: Bouchercon Toastmaster.
  • Saddest moment: Too many to mention.

I never thought my writing would get me this far.  It’s rarely been an easy adventure, but I’m glad I stuck with it.  Not sure where the next 20yrs will take me.

Please enjoy this “Shelfie” as it represents twenty years of writing (although not twenty years of being published). It does look like I am going to need a bigger set of bookshelves.   🙂

Longtime followers know that I select a charity to support each year and I usually drag you all into the fundraising.  This year is personal.  For too many of my friends are currently fighting breast cancer or have fought breast cancer in recent years.  For that reason, my 2018 charity selection is The Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Here’s where you come in.  If you buy a book from my website bookstore, during the month of May, I’ll donate the value of your order to charity–dollar for dollar.  Not only will you be giving to charity but you’ll be getting a book out of it.  So don’t miss your chance to run me up.

Not everything is listed on the bookstore so if you’re looking for translated titles, out of print titles, hardbacks of the Aidy Westlake series and audiobooks, let me know. I can do a few MYSTERY BOXES.  If you’re ordering out of the USA, please contact me first so I can quote shipping costs.  Thanks.

I hope you’ll pick up a book or two for you, a friend or even an enemy.  And even if you don’t buy a book, please share this post.  Thanks.
