People always ask me what I'm reading. The embarrassing truth is that I'm so busy writing that books tend to stack up beside my bedside. At Maine Crime Writers today I did the weaselly thing and asked the most voracious reader I know—my wife Kristen—to recommend some of her recent favorites.
On a side note, I strongly believe that writers need to keep reading, both the classics and your contemporaries; it really is the best way to learn. So essentially my schedule has made me a hypcocrite on this subject.
Add "find more time to read" to my growing list of New Year's resolutions.
