Left Coast Crime 2013

What a whirlwind! Left Coast Crime started in Colorado Springs last Thursday, and it’s been crazy. Where do I begin…


The view from my room at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort. Words fail me.

IMG_5485Look what Brad Parks does when you give him an award. Bet Rochelle and Catriona were better behaved…
