This is my first blog and I have no idea what I'm doing. Please bear with me!
Let's see--how to begin? First of all I want to reassure you that I won't be doing
this every day and drowning you in the minutia of my, on the whole, pretty dull life.
Only when something exciting happens that is relevant to the mystery world will I
put pen to paper, er, fingers to keyboard, and let you know about it. Recently I told an
octogenarian writer friend of mine that I was starting a blog, but I didn't want it to
be too personal. I planned to stick to historical annecdotes about Philadelphia and South
Jersey--the settings for my books.
She said, "Oh, Robin, nobody will read it! You have to tell us about your sex life!"
This person is a good friend and I usually follow her advice. Maybe if interest lags...but
...many writers are afraid to have their mothers read their books or blogs, but I'm afraid to have
my children read them. And my grandson enters kindergarten next fall...then
I will have to be really careful.
I think that's enough for my first blog. My feet are damp and if I keep on I'll be slogging instead of blogging.
But please note the date for the launch party of SLEIGHT OF HAND, the 3rd Jo Banks book:

Now, as a famous newscaster used to say, "So long until tomorrow," , or the next day, or...
