The Day I Died, 2017

"I owe libraries everything, including my mystery writing career. When I was 12, I had read the entire kids' section of my library, so they sent me upstairs to the adult books. But I was sure I wasn't supposed to be there, so I ducked into the first room so I wouldn't get sent back down. It was the mystery room, where I discovered Agatha Christie and Mary Higgins Clark. The mystery room is precisely where I needed to be."

Nearly forty years later, I still enjoy wandering through aisles of books, brushing my hands along the covers and feeling the excitement of stories yet unknown."
