What you really don't want to do is get information wrong about a classic car. In my third book, my sleuth gets a '57 Bel Air and I mistakenly had her fasten the rear seat seatbelts. I still get e-mail about that goof.

By the way, my explaination is that when her father and godfather restored the car for her they put in a safety package which included the rear seatbelts.

In times liek this it is best to quote Homer Simpson, "D'Oh!"

There but for the grace of the pointy-eared cat goddess go I - or all of us - Donna. I think 'fessing up shows your grace and professional attitude, and I trust readers will forgive you. (Just don't mess up anything with a gun! Oh man... gun nuts...)


Donna, I have loved your books and read them again and again. Specifically to write a body of work review for my blog - but haven't gotten around to it yet. Life got busy. Anyway, the reason I read them over again was your turn of phrase, timing and story telling. Love the characters, plotting, and cleverness in your writing. I even bought copies of the books and sent them to my mum and sister in Australia!

I noticed the faux pas regarding Rob's bar exam. However, it was such a spiffingly good paragraph that I didn't mind at all.

I read and re-read your books; pass them around; and wake up my husband laughing in bed!

Yes, I noticed the "oops" about Rob and I am also one of those people that count typos. (Just a side effect of my day job.) But I figured someone else would tell you (they did) and you didn't need me saying "me too!"

Don't worry about it and please keep writing!!!
