As this is Valentine's week, I wanted to spread a little love to the other Cozy Chicks.
Writing is an extremely solitary process. All of us spend day after day in a chair facing a computer screen, our focus on imaginary worlds and fictional people.
When life throws me a curve ball I can reach out and connect with all six of these remarkable ladies. No matter how deep they are in their work in progress, they will stop what they're doing and offer support.
The only way I could thank them was to put my sentiments into print. You can't really read this photo, but it's the dedication page from A DEADLY CLICHE, which comes out March 1st. I wanted them to read it before it hit the shelves.
To the Cozy Chicks, my sisters in crime:
Spread the love today, friends. Contact someone you haven't connected with in a while and put a smile on their face.
