A great weekend at Crimefest, both panels went well. I was chairing four wonderful writers talking about the benefits and the drawbacks of writing the long running series. Between the five of us, we had written over 126 books. Felix Francis, Sharan Newmann, Robert Wilson, Gunner Staaleson and I laughed a lot. We hope the audience enjoyed it as much as we did. Best tip keep track of the characters as you go. If you ever forget what you called the detective's sister's neighbour's dog in book 11, don't worry, put the question on your website and a fan will know!
