This week I'm at the Crimebake Conference in Boston, so I'm not cooking dinner (DH is on his own, sorry, hon!). I'm stoked to be at Crimebake, not just because I get to learn about cool things like forensics and poisons (hey, you just never know when that stuff is going to come in handy in a plot ;-) but because I get to meet...
All time, hands down, one of my favorite authors. I have few authors who are auto-buys for me, and Harlan is one of them. Thanks to my good friend Margie Lawson, who used a Harlan book as an example in a workshop, and the excerpt was so compelling, I went out the next day and bought the book. I've read everything (except his Myron books, because I want to read those in order, and a girl only has so much time when she's SUPPOSED to be writing her own books) he's written ever since.
If you like suspense, you have GOT to read Harlan Coben. Read "Tell No One." Read "The Woods." Heck, grab any of his books off the shelf and start reading. You'll be drawn in and you'll be a better reader than me if you figure it out before the end.
Harlan, of course, isn't the only amazing author at Crimebake this weekend, so I know my credit card is going to be on fire from all the books I'm buying. I have GOT to finish my own book that's due really soon because I just know the books I'll buy will be screaming to be read.
