From Inside My Book Fort - - - Lesa Holstine

I am so pleased to have one of my very favorite people here visiting me in my book fort today.

And Annabelle is very happy to see her Auntie Lesa!

Is there anyone in the book world who does not know my friend, Lesa Holstine?

She's well-known, loved and respected in the mystery community, but also in wider literary circles.

Lesa can be found on Twitter every Thursday from 12-1 PM ET, participating in #AskaLibrarian, as librarians suggest books for eager readers. 

She's the author of the "Mystery Fiction" chapter in Genreflecting: A Guide to Popular Reading Interest (7th ed).

She is the long time Mistress of Lesa's Book Critiques

She's also the blogger for The Poisoned Pen bookstore,

In her "spare" time, Lesa reads and reviews mysteries for Library Journal's monthly "Mystery & Suspense" column.

AND, the woman loves to travel.

(She's a delightful roomie.  We've shared rooms at the Bouchercon hotels in Raleigh and New Orleans, and in an apartment in Paris - who knows where next?!).

Now - ta da . . .

Here's Lesa (and Jinx) reading one of her favorite passages -  Enjoy!

Who knows where, Kaye? Dallas in 2019?

Kevin R. Tipple said...

Hope you two and a lot of other folks make it here to Dallas. I am hoping to attend as well since it is here.

Charlotte said...

Thank you, Lesa I always enjoy your voice when you read to us.
Love those kitties. Love it when they are in the video.
Kaye great idea to have Lesa share with us today.

Lesa said...

Kaye's already registered, and we're planning to room together, Kevin. I just need to register & we both plan to be there.

Lesa said...

You're welcome, Charlotte! It was so nice of Kaye to invite me.

Those cats. Quite the hams!
