Rebecca Cantrell's Note
A City of Broken Glass was a powerful novel. I reviewed it last July. And, if you ever have the chance to hear Rebecca speak, you'll be impressed with her vast knowledge of Nazi Germany, the setting for her series.
However, if you ever have the chance to go to eat with her, prepare to die laughing. I've been to dinner with her in Tucson following the Tucson Festival of Books, laughed with her at Left Coast Crime, and I love her sense of humor. But, I don't know if I ever laughed so much as the night we went for ice cream at the Sugar Bowl in Scottsdale. Rebecca and I agreed we'd have to meet there and try all the ice cream on the menu. Then, she moved to Germany, and I moved to Indiana. Someday, we'll get together again for ice cream.
So, there's a little background so you'll understand the note from this versatile author. Thank you, Becky.
From Rebecca Cantrell/Bekka Black
Have fun on your new adventure! I know that you will bring your love of books and mysteries to all of those new and lucky library patrons. You will be missed in Tucson, but this does open up many interesting conference ice cream quests for us in the future...
See you around in the mystery world!
Becky (aka Rebecca Cantrell and Bekka Black)"
