Today I met my favorite author, C.J.Box, a mystery writer with many awards.
He has twelve novels under his belt, in twelve languages. He won the
prestigious Edgar Award for Blue Heaven - 2008 Best Novel, and it is being
optioned for a film currently looking at Jack Nicholson to star.
C.J.'s latest Book, Nowhere To Run was released yesterday, and he was
in Cheyenne, Wyoming at the City News Shop signing books for his hundreds of
fans that showed up.
Ten of his novels involve a Wyoming Game Warden named Joe Pickett.
Joe Pickett fans are certain about one thing, that Joe is a man
of integrity. He is vulnerable, yet has the strength and courage
to see him through some of the most dangerous and complicated
situations that only an author with a brilliant imagination could
Personally, I am in love with Joe Pickett, even though he is married,
even though he has three daughters, and even though he is a fictional
character. He just makes me swoon! :-)
