  1. Hey Melodie: Enjoyed meeting you and the Deadly Dames recently in Stratford. Goddaughter's Revenge is hilarious. You have mastered the art of the short, to-the-point sentence: "..as weasely as a basket of weasels.." , "...green nature stuff...", too funny.

    I learned my trade in a small Italian family company. This "Cake" really gets the humour of the Gallo family. Funniest thing I saw in construction was when my Boss Domenic called his son-in-law Fabricio (I can't get fired from this job) a baccala in front of Rob (nephew by marriage), and yours truly (un-related Cake wanting to learn a trade). Rob and I almost died laughing. We thought Fab was going to cry.

    Maybe you could have a character based on Angelo Mosca in one of your stories. You know, mean SOB in the CFL, too soft-hearted to be an enforcer for the mob, like Rocky. I love seeing the Riders play the Cats in Hamilton.

    Best wishes to you and the Dames,

    Dave Bond, Whitby, Ontario

    1. Dave, I've just now seen your comment! Thank you so much - I've been consumed by taking care of my palliative pater these past few months, and have neglected the nether sections of my website. Love your reference to yourself as "Cake" (wonder how many outside our world will get that - grin.) And thanks for your kind words re The Goddaughter's Revenge. That's the book that won the Derringer award in the US and the Arthur Ellis in Canada. Will definitely keep your suggestion in mind for book 7. Although I expect Pete could handle him :)

  2. Hi Melodie

    Sharon Crawford suggested I get in touch with you saying we have some common denominators.

    I note you are an illustrious crime writer author, as well as the Queen of Comedy.
    I am neither. I practiced law until recently, also writing humour, full time now. I got tired of people telling me lawyer and humourist is an oxymoron.

    This is where we might connect.

    I recently launched my new book, Poutine on the Orient Express: An Irreverent Look at Travel. I would love to chat with you about the author business. Can we do so further. I'll send you a connect request on LinkedIn for starters.

    What say you?
