Get Well Soon

The "Diagnosis Murder" fans are the greatest…

P1010596_1 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…"

  1. Lee, I honestly don’t think that DMAS would still be
    around if it wasn’t for your books. Although we get very quiet at times…the antisipation of your next
    novel is what keeps that DM Thursday night feeling alive. Plus, we get more in the novels….I guess you
    could say we get what sometimes might end up on
    the cutting room floor, the good stuff what the writers wanted us to see..but the producers didn’t.:-)
    BTW the critter the cutest..what a great support team!
