Here's a nice round-up of the 2023 (crime fiction conference) Bouchercon from J. Kingston Pierce at The Rap Sheet:
Mailboxes at 3624
Surf Board Wrangler
Today's author is Robert Crais, author of the Elvis Cole series.
He has a new book out titled, RACING THE LIGHT. Read more about him here:
I took my photo of him at the Mystery Bookstore in LA.

Sort of the inverse of this Automattic's (owner of Wordpress) acquistion of an ActivityPub plug-in so blogs can join the #Fediverse:
Sunrise over Diamond Head
Today's author is Craig Johnson, author of the Longmire books, which were made into a TV series on A&E.
My photo of Craig was taken at the LA Times Festival of Books when we were both signing in the Mystery Bookstore booth. It's a rare picture of him without his cowboy hat!
Turning of the Cable Car
Today's writer is Christa Faust, author of MONEY SHOT. To quote from her website:
"Writer. Pervert. Strong female character."
I took my photo of her at the LA Times Festival of Books.
The Pause that Refreshes
Today's author is Sue Grafton.
This picture was used by a number of news outlets when she passed in 2017.
I took the photo at a #boucheron conference when she was signing (with a tremendously long line of fans waiting for her) down the table from me in the book room.
