An Interview with a Gazette Newspaper Columnist

Anita Miller is the new "Book Groupie" weekly columnist at the Colorado Springs Gazette daily newspaper. When her first column extolling Harlan Coben's books appeared in early December, I emailed her to tell how much I enjoyed it. I thought he might enjoy it, too, so I sent him a link to the article. My email initiated a conversation with Anita about possible future column topics, and one thing led to another. She put my book, A REAL BASKET CASE, on her reading pile, enjoyed it, and asked me if she could interview me for her blog. Of course I agreed! :)

She posted the interview yesterday, and you can read it at:

If you live in the Colorado Springs area and love books, I suggest you follow Anita's blog and look for her column in the Friday newspaper. I hope both her column and blog are very successful. I'd like to see more discussion of books in the local media.
