I just got back from the MONK 100th Episode party at an Italian restaurant in Hollywood. I had a great time catching up with all the writers and meeting some of the guest stars (as well as new semi-regular Hector Elizondo). I brought along my nephew Killian, who doesn’t speak a word of English. He’s in town with us from France for a few weeks and is a big MONK fan. Luckily for him, USA Network president Jeff Wachtel, actress Glenne Headly (who played Stottlemeyer’s wife), and Jason Gray Stanford’s girlfriend all spoke French, so he had folks to talk to. He also got to meet the whole cast and have his picture taken with them. On the way out, we all got a bottle of French wine in a “Monk 100th episode” comemorative leather bottle-bag. I let my nephew drink it on the way home (just kidding, of course). Now I am back at home, working on my 8th Monk novel, which is due in less than 90 days. Ahhhhhh!

Lee, if it’s any consolation I’ve got just 27 days to finish my current novel. Unfortunately, I’ve managed to strand my entire team on a mesa in the Gila Wilderness and I can’t think of one good reason why they should ever come back down again. And who is the mysterious rider who’s been dogging their back trail for the past week? The hell if I know.
Awww, it was sweet of Jason and Glenne to take time out to talk to your nephew. I hope everyone had a great time and YAY Monk. I can’t wait for the Monk-tacular 100th Episode of Monk.
Thanks for sharing the photos! I love the whole cast, and never miss an episode. Your nephew is gorgeous! Wish I spoke French, but I only had a semester in high school, and forget what little I did learn.
While I’m saddened by the loss of Stanley Kamel, I love the addition of Hector Elizondo. He’s a wonderful actor, and I wish his character well in having Monk for a patient.
Best of luck with the latest Monk novel. I’m looking forward to it!
Fantastic! It’s a great success for everyone involved! A real achievement!
(And I have no doubt you can write two chapter sections a day and make your deadline!)
One of the nice things about connecting to persons of talent, and groups of talent, is the feeling of confidence they radiate, that “it” is do-able, one step at a time! And it’s nice to share it with family!
Colonel Goldberg will write a splendid Monk novel in less than ninety days.
Can’t believe it’s almost 100, that Monk show. Love it! I have also enjoyed the novels!
