Deadly Women - Ellen Nehr, Jan Grape, Dean James

I'll probably finish this in the next couple of days, simply because I've reached the point of skimming.


The interviews have now taken on a sameness that can't hold my interest.  I would rather have known what makes each writer and her books/stories truly unique and worth knowing more about what goes on behind the scenes.


As a resource for someone who wants to know more about a particular aspect of mystery writing and women as writers and characters, this is a great tool.  But to just sit down and read cover to cover?  Nah, it's overload.
