Sleuthfest highlights...

Way overtired and too much to catch up with, but a few highlights:

Blaize Clement noting that we need pets to love, that we all talk to our pets, and that having characters talk to their pets can be very revealing about their characters. (I am absolutely loving her "Curiosity Killed the Cat-Sitter.")

Sun-Sentinel reviewer Oline Cogdill describing the mystery as the contemporary social novel. Whatever issue you care about, you'll find it discussed, dissected, turned this way and that in a mystery.

Ace Edwards creatorRandy Rawls (author of "Jasmin's Fate") reciting a passage from a J.A. Konrath mystery ("Bloody Mary") by the pool as an example of beautiful and on point writing (and then going on into very funny stories about being in the armed forces).

oh, and seeing pelicans, getting out of the cold, and more....
