Charlaine Harris

I am sparing with my deaths, too, Dean, though in the Sookie books the list mounted up pretty high. What a wonderful career you've had, writing several different series with such different tones. May your death toll continue to rise.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Love this! And you "have this," no doubt. The very pact you wonder about it is the reason you are so successful!

Outline? I don't use one, either. either. Although some writing days I dearly wish for one…


Nora-Adrienne Deret

Dean I love your stories and the fun part is seeing who dies, why they were killed and whether they actually deserved it or not. Please keep entertaining all your fans with lots of creative deaths.

Dean James

Nora-Adrienne, I will keep it up as long as I can. Thanks! I love creating awful characters who end up getting killed. The one in the book I just turned in is, I think, one of the most awful I've ever written.

Dean James

Charlaine and Hank, thanks for the kind word and encouragement!

Carolyn Haines

I've said it before. Some men just need killin'. (And women, too, and a few surly teenagers). Heck, there are just a lot of annoying people out there, and I'm sure I'm on a few lists myself! I always love your books.

Ruth Nixon

I really enjoyed this post. I must admit I don't keep count of the bodies in your books as the always have been people I thought needed to die. Now if I can learn to say the sister's names correctly it would be a plus but since I'm reading them it's ok as I know who they are.
