As you read this, I'm on my way to Owensboro, Kentucky today to see "Mapes For Hire," the stage play version of my Shamus-nominated PI novel THE MAN WITH THE IRON ON BADGE, which is being performed this week at the International Mystery Writers Festival. I'll also be talking about writing TV mysteries in a seminar with CSI creator Anthony Zuiker, participating in some panels, and doing a number of book-signings with folks like Stuart Kaminsky, Mary Higgins Clark, and Gene Hackman. But what I am really, really looking forward to is eating lots of BBQ.
I'll report back when I can.

Sounds like fun, Lee.
And no offense to the fine folks in Kentucky, but the best BBQ ribs in the entire world are at Mack’s BBQ in Skiatook, Oklahoma. Kentucky can probably BBQ you up some good chicken. We’ll give them that. But you’re going to have to move the festival to Skiatook if you want ribs.
Go to a place called Old Hickory. Its about 6 or 7 blocks from the river park center and it is amazing.
