Donna, Queen of Scots

(Scottish Parliament Building, Edinburgh)

Donna Moore is pleased to announce Big Beat From Badsville, a new blog dedicated to Scottish crime fiction and crime writers. Her long list of authors includes great names from the past (Arthur Conan Doyle, Josephine Tey), current stars (Denise Mina, Christopher Brookmyre) and megastars (Alexander McCall Smith), and some authors whose names are new to me.

All this adds up to the promise of some enjoyable exploration. So join a most genial guide to the world of guns and haggis.

You ought to find the experience rewarding. There are lots of names on that list. Scotland: It's Not Just Kilts and Haggis.

Bonnie Scotland! Lived there for nearly a year and have to say it was one of the highlights of my life! Will definitely visit. Thank you, Peter!

p.s. It seems forever ago I posted the rerun of "Socko" with all that has happened. LOL There's probably been a study in understanding men and women by the socks they wear! ;) I hope you enjoy "The Scarlett High Heels."
Didn't have much time on the flight home last night so a little rushed.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! :))

Aw shucks, thank you :o) But Peter - don't tell everyone I'm not mean - that will destroy any shred of street cred I have left!

Hope by this time you had a good trip home.

PM, John Connolly was once placed in the position of having to read a sex scene from one of his novels to an audience that included his mother. The passage included the line "In that moment of joyous intimacy, men wear socks."

And one of my hosts over the past two weeks knows a thing or two about shoes.

Donna, if I can think of anything bad to say about you, I will post it here.

I am back home now. I can't begin to tell you what a thrill that is.
