Isabel Allende, an incredible author and interesting person, recently came out with a mystery...but she says the whole genre's "a joke".
Grrrr. I've always admired her, but I can't imagine saying something so wildly insensitive about an entire genre. Nothing like belittling an entire group of readers, and writers. And cashing in on it, at the same time.
Great article, featuring friend-to-the-genre McKenna Jordan of Houston's Murder by the Book, in the Houston Chronicle.
Sorry about the diatribe...just had to get that off my chest!
