In The Beginning...There Was This Cuban Restaurant in Dallas...

Jana, Kathy, Christie, Gemma, Me & Farrah at that Cuban restaurant, July 2007
 
This is where it all began.  July 2007, in a Cuban restaurant in Dallas.  Dorchester Publishing took its authors to dinner.  And while we were sitting there, eating, drinking and laughing, an idea was born.  Our then editor, Leah Hultenschmidt, suggested that since we wrote funny, mystery/romance - we should get together and create a blog.  By August, Killer Fiction was live.
 
Authors have come and gone, but the core is there and if I do say so myself - we are still as wickedly entertaining as we were 5 years ago.  Gemma's had some adorable babies and Christie's still cracks us up...Kathy has seen her tripletts through college and Jana is building us all new houses with retaining walls...and my hair is gray.  Well, more like silver, actually.
 
Thank you friends for making Killer Fiction so much fun to be a part of.  We are not going away - just to another place at Facebook.  Look for us there.  And watch for some exciting projects coming down the pike (does anyone know what a pike is and why you'd come 'down' it?).
 
Stay in touch (don't make me come after you).  We'll see you over on Facebook!
 
With love,
The Assassin

Y'all have had a good run and I think this is a natural progression these days. No worries about losing touch. You can't get rid of me that easy. :)
