From Inside My Book Fort - - - Lesa Holstine

I am so pleased to have one of my very favorite people here visiting me in my book fort today.

And Annabelle is very happy to see her Auntie Lesa!

Is there anyone in the book world who does not know my friend, Lesa Holstine?

She's well-known, loved and respected in the mystery community, but also in wider literary circles.

Lesa can be found on Twitter every Thursday from 12-1 PM ET, participating in #AskaLibrarian, as librarians suggest books for eager readers. 

She's the author of the "Mystery Fiction" chapter in Genreflecting: A Guide to Popular Reading Interest (7th ed).

She is the long time Mistress of Lesa's Book Critiques

She's also the blogger for The Poisoned Pen bookstore,

In her "spare" time, Lesa reads and reviews mysteries for Library Journal's monthly "Mystery & Suspense" column.

AND, the woman loves to travel.

(She's a delightful roomie.  We've shared rooms at the Bouchercon hotels in Raleigh and New Orleans, and in an apartment in Paris - who knows where next?!).

Now - ta da . . .

Here's Lesa (and Jinx) reading one of her favorite passages -  Enjoy!

Annabelle rocking 'n rollin' in the snow

While I've pretty much stayed inside while watching the snow today, Donald and Annabelle have romped and played outside.

Looks to me like Annabelle enjoys the snow a wee bit.

Harley would be so proud.

Robert S. Levinson, R.I.P.

The mystery community says goodbye to yet another.

Robert S. Levinson was one of a kind.  An integral and unforgettable member of the mystery community.

He was kind and funny and knew everyone, including more than a few Hollywood greats.

He was, in addition to being an author, a newspaperman, a publicist, PR man, producer.

For an amazing list of Bob's clients just look here -

He will be missed by many.

I didn't know Bob well, but I always loved his stories and was honored to able to get him to post at Meanderings and Muses.  Here 'tis - Enjoy.
