The "Diagnosis Murder" fans are the greatest…
They’ve been sending me "Get Well Soon" cards every day from all over the world… and a collection of stuffed animals with bandaged right-elbows. You can see a few of the animals in the picture on the left (click on the image for a larger view). I’ve arranged them on the bookshelf near my desk so they can nag me to keeping working on the next book!
Back in March, when I broke both my arms, I was inundated with cards and letters… and I can’t tell you how much it lifted my spirits. I’m lucky to have such thoughtful and caring readers…and I think about them every time I sit down at the computer to murder someone.
I mean that in a nice way, of course.
…though my wife does tell people if she dies before me, whether its natural causes or not, she wants a full investigation.
"My husband spends every day committing perfect murders," she says. "Some times I wonder if maybe, just maybe, it’s practice…"
