Reviewer extraordinaire Daneet Steffens recently launched a new column at The Seattle Review of Books, aimed at covering "the latest goings on in mystery, suspense, and crime fiction." Each column will feature a (cheekily named) Quintessential Interview comprising five "top five" questions. To my delight, she invited me to participate in the first one. If you'd like to know my top five places to write, tunes to write to, or hometown spots, you can find out here. And be sure to read the rest of Daneet's column while you're at it!
