Gulf Coast Sisters in Crime
By Sassy Cabot from the Read ’Em and Eat Mysteries by Terrie Farley Moran
Well, you know I like nothing better than when our author, Terrie Farley Moran comes to town because she always finds time to talk about the Read ’Em and Eat Café and Bookstore on glorious Fort Myers Beach, so Bridgy and I get a lot of customers coming in for a glass of sweet tea and a piece of Aunt Ophie’s Buttermilk Pie.
Just last month Terrie visited a dynamic group of writers at the Florida Gulf Coast chapter of Sister in Crime. (And yes that is Killer Characters author Cheryl Hollon next to Terrie. Visit her characters here on the 24th of every month.) While I do wish Terrie had spent a little more time talking about us and a little less time talking about her grandchildren, (honestly, I don’t think she can help herself) Bridgy and I listened in and there was a lot of give and take about writing and reading and characters. Well, I can tell you that I love to hear writers talking about characters. After all—we are the ones that make the story come alive, are we not?
So to celebrate this hugely fun visit, we are giving away notepaper with designs that are soooo Gulf Coast. They are from a collection by famous artist Leoma Lovegrove of Matlache. Do you remember when Bridgy and I took the moms there for a visit?
To enter please comment below and tell us anything at all about writing notes. You love to, you hate to, you draw funny pictures—we want to know. Please include your email in this format: yourname (at) your server(dot) com—so the spambots can’t pick it up.
