The other day my husband picked up several books at the library (large print). Among one of them was a book by Patricia Cornwell, who writes murder mysteries. Her main character is always Dr. Scarpetta, a medical examiner. He just began reading this book, when CBS ran a big clip about her. It seems she has never let anyone in her house, etc.,and this was a first time interview. She has a new book which came out on Tuesday. She showed her 3.5 million dollar helicopter, which she learned to fly, because one of her characters flies one. She has sold over 100 million books, and really before the interview, I never heard of her. Has anyone else? That is some kind of money and some kind of writer. I began reading her book late at night when my husband is sleeping, so he doesn't have a snit about sharing during the day. The long and short is, she wrote this book, Black Notice, in first person. If you like medical lingo, then you'll learn a lot. I'm about half way through and find it quite interesting. Also, beware the foul language.
Long, long afterward in an oak I found the arrow still unbroke
And the song from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend
