The Deadly Ginger-haired Crime Writer

About a year ago, San Francisco crime writer Tim Maleeny introduced me to Sophie Littlefield at the Bouchercon bar. A tall, ginger-haired wonder...Sophie's a writer with style to burn and a champion of anyone trying to crack the publishing code. We quickly became fast friends.

I was fortunate enough to read an advance copy of Sophie's debut last week A BAD DAY FOR SORRY ahead of the pack and decided to interview her for Tony Black's Pulp Pusher. Her book has been getting a lot of traction in the press lately so take notice, people. The interview can be found HERE.
