  • Starting way back with Nancy Drew mysteries, followed by Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, anything in the Alfred Hitchcock and Ellery Queen magazines, and later by humor authors Dave Barry and Jean Shepherd. All made huge impacts in my life and have inspired me to write what I love, humorous mysteries.
