My first book, Sex, Murder And A Double Latte came out in June 2005. I was so excited I could barely see straight! I prayed that it would be the first of many books. I hoped against hope that I was beginning a new career. But I was also scared. I was scared that the book would fail, that no one outside my own circle of friends and family would buy it. Even now I fear that my career as an author is going to disappear in the blink of an eye. And yet when I look at my body of work it seems...substantial. Like maybe I can stop worrying so much. That maybe, just maybe the reason my books have been translated into so many languages and continue to be carried in book stores around the world is because some of you actually LIKE what I do.
For that I really need to thank you. Thank you for giving me license to exhale. I've been holding my breath for a little too long.
