  1. I can hardly wait until your new book will hit the swedish market.

    For what I´ve noticed I would concider you as a very busy writer. I really would like to know how many hours you actually spend (during a writing period) writing and what your motive force is?

    I´ve had this "silly" author dream ever since I learned how to read when I was about seven years old, but so far I haven´t manage to write just about anything.

    Greetings from Sweden


  2. Greetings from a US fan! I hope all goes well with the launch of your newest book. We're looking forward to it here across the pond.

    I have a heavy duty reader for a mom, as well as her sister, and they have been begging me to start reading your books for years. I finally delved into the first one recently and by 6am the next morning, when I had finished it, I was completely hooked on your writing and characters. I'm very lucky that my family gave me the other books in your series so I can continue reading them. I just finished Blind to the Bones and can't wait to find out what happens with Diane Fry's sister.

    Thanks very much for creating such a great series!
