Rick and I both published through Medallion Press. Though we have both parted from that publisher, we remain in close contact and are planning some projects together. See our blog, in the other column!

Joe is a tremendously talented author, and a hilarious guy besides. I met him at an authors' conference in Chicago. With the help of Barry Eisler, he is leading the charge for self-publishing.
I met Tasha at a writers' conference and book signing event in Peoria, Illinois. She is a wonderful person and a very talented writer. Her genre is historical mysteries.
Kelle was also at the Peoria conference and book signing. She is very outgoing, which helped provide her with great results at the signing. She writes mystery / romance novels.
Lisa was my third partner in crime (no pun intended) at the Peoria conference and book signing. She writes murder mysteries, with four of her works currently in print.
I met Julie at Love Is Murder in Chicago back in 2010. She is a great writer, and a person who is always willing to help with advice and assistance.
