Louise Penny, one of my favorite authors, started a blog this month. If you haven't read her mysteries set in Quebec, why not? Start with Still Life, the book that won the New Blood Dagger in England, the Arthur Ellis Award in Canada, and the Dilys Award from the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association. Once you've met Inspector Armand Gamache, you'll want to read A Fatal Grace. And, those of us who are fans in the United States, can't wait to read The Cruelest Month, which is due out in March. And, I know at least two of us who are eagerly awaiting Louise Penny's appearance at the Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Scottsdale, AZ in March.
Louise's blog is at louisepenny.blogspot.com. She's going to try to post daily, but I hope she's not neglecting her writing! I'm in Arizona, so the weather and life in Quebec is quite different when I read about it. For me, it's a chance to spend a couple minutes a day reading about one of my favorite authors.
