Yes this is actually me and the amazing mystery writer Martha Grimes at a booksigning. Oh, she is so funny. Her talk was wonderful. She doesn't know what's going to happen when she writes just like we don't know what is going to happen when we read her. She never figures out a plot ahead of time. I told her my honoria name came from Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter books and she grokked it. We talked briefly about Sayers' humor and Grimes' humor. It was great to have a brief conversation with the master.
