    Since I can’t write at all, I hate to critisize an author who writes so well. I’ve stopped reading authors who are very repetive. “he never met that person before.” “he never saw her before,” etc. For you it is “Why don’t you?” Instead of “you could sit her on the bed with me.” “Why don’t you?’ runs through all your books. I’d love to see some variety and a positive instead of a negative.

    • Holy cow, Eva, you’re very perceptive. I didn’t realize I was using that particular phrase so often in all my books. The worst offender was Stalker, with Passage coming in a close second. From now on, I’ll be aware of it. It’s my crutch phrase and it needs to go. Thx. 🙂

  7. Just finished Desert Waits, well done! I like your style, have read Broken Justice, Night Game, Night Hunter, and Night Widow and I will continue to search out your books. I’d like an easy format of the order they were written, website perhaps?

  8. Hi Carol, I like this, thanks for posting it on Facebook. I am looking to strat a new website, not sure about my current site.

  9. Hi Carol. Rob Leininger here. We were in the same writers group in Reno, way back when. Remember Monnie and Jack and a few others? I’m very happy to see you REALLY made it. I just found my original NIGHT STALKER (you signed it on 3/10/90), and SKIN DEEP (signed 9/8/90). I’m still writing, author of the GUMSHOE series: Gumshoe; Gumshoe For Two; Gumshoe on the Loose; Gumshoe Rock; Gumshoe in the Dark. And other thrillers. If you want to reach out, I’m at robleiningernovels@gmail.com
