You know you're a mystery author when your assistant walks into your office and you're saying out loud, "I have to figure out how to kill this guy," and she replies, "Do I have to clean it up?" My response to that was, "It depends on how messy it is." Thank God my wide-eyed, very efficient assistant (a.k.a) Cassie understands my eccentricities and has said on more than one occasion, "At least you're never boring to work for."
2. Far more tequila in this book than wine
Any ideas? IE: Drowned by Don Julio (told you I'm not good with titles).
Winner will get a jar of my homemade arbol chile salsa, a kudos in the intro and a free copy of the book when it comes out in November.
