Welcome to new visitors

To those of you who are checking out this website for the first time, I say WELCOME. According to Google Analytics, there are many of you. In the last month almost 80 percent of those clicking on are new followers. On average, you're spending a couple of minutes on the website and most of you get there by searching "mystery books." Most of you come to the site from the United States -- many, not all, from Minnesota -- but quite a few are from the United Kingdom and some from Germany and France. Even some from Brazil. 
One of the thrills of writing and publishing in the digital age is that I get contact with many people I would have never have reached even 10 years ago. Isn't this an amazing time to be in this world?
